About this Cairns Tour
You'll be whisked away from the reef for a look at the rainforest. They're both World Heritage sites, so that's twice the bragging rights from your Queensland adventure. Climb aboard! This tour boasts a vast and modern fleet of helicopters for a luxurious and comfortable ride as you soar above one of the globe's most coveted coasts and over a lush rainforest that's been standing the test of time for millions of years.
But your scenic flight is just the beginning of this experience. After landing, you'll have plenty of time to swim, explore, or simply relax alongside Mossman Gorge's thundering waterfall. You'll share the space with the Eastern Kuku Yalanji Aboriginal people and a menagerie of exotic animals, including tree kangaroos, Australian brush-turkeys, and Boyd's forest dragons. (Don't worry, these dragons don't breathe fire.)
Just when you thought your senses were going into overload, your taste buds will get their own thrill, care of a gourmet brunch. Succulent tropical fruits, bold cheeses, and rich pastries can all be washed down with juices or sparkling wine. You might even be inspired to raise that glass in a heartfelt toast to this gastronomic treat.
Your departure time may come more swiftly than you'd like. But, look at the bright side, you get another shot at a bird's eye view of the vast, unspoiled, natural environment you just experienced up-close. Snap some pictures for posterity (and your social media pages) and replay your favorite moments in your mind's eye as the helicopter's rotors set a rhythmic "whup, whup, whup" on your ride back to Cairns.
According to legend, the Kuku Yalanji people of North Queensland have long shared theirAboriginal land with a tribe of "hairy people" bearing notable features. Flat noses with broad nostrils.Thick brows over sunken eyes.And prominent jaws with prodigiously wide mouths. Known as the Yowie, this mysterious species has, evidently, not always been the friendliest of neighbors. Cave drawings and oral histories share tales of attacks perpetrated by them. Yowza!
Please make your own way to the Marlin Marina - Finger A and look for the tour signs.
