Next, you’ll head to the outer Great Barrier Reef, home to Arlington Reef’s majestic coral structures and diverse array of marine life. Fly low over the reef before a magical beach landing on the stunning Vlasoff Cay.

Crossing the coast, soar over the rainforest-clad Great Dividing Range to view the thundering waterfalls at Barron Falls and the Kuranda rainforests and the Crystal Cascades, Cairns City. Combining two iconic natural wonders, you don't want to miss this Cairns helicopter flight.
