Enjoy the Tropical North in style with helicopter rides and cruises to the Great Barrier Reef. Visit Mossman Gorge, the mighty Daintree River and the hidden treasure “Stingray Bay”.


This luxurious 4 day stay in tropical North Queensland gives you the added exhilaration of a helicopter ride over the rainforest canopy and Great Barrier Reef, along with the opportunity to see rarely visited parts of the Daintree River forest.

The Great Barrier Reef is home to over 1200 species of fish and over 500 species of coral. Your scenic flight takes you to the outer parts of the Reef, where you’ll have the chance to snorkel or dive, or observe the reef from behind the glass of an underwater observatory or semi-submersible craft.
