What you can expect

Take to the sky and admire the Great Barrier Reef with a helicopter flight over the Palm Island archipelago. This collection of islands forms a natural jewel amid the reef, and experiencing it from the air is the only way to gain a true appreciation for the scope of its wonder and beauty.

Once you take off from Townsville Airport, enjoy an extraordinary vista as you pass over Magnetic Island and track towards the Coral Sea. Follow the trail of small islands along the reef as you admire the sights leading to Palm Island's shores.

As your helicopter circles around the island's rugged coastline, you get a look at the fringing reefs that make it one of the most prized assets of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. The return leg of your journey offers views of Townsville's city and port districts, the Strand, and Castle Hill.
