Orpheus Island Day Trip by Helicopter from Townsville

4 h
Full Day
About this activity
Make your way to the Townsville Airport to meet your pilot for your helicopter flight to Orpheus Island. After a safety briefing from your pilot, set off into the skies.

During the 30-minute flight, communicate with your pilot via the provided 2-way radio headset. Your pilot points out landmarks below you as you soar over the Coral Sea to Orpheus Island. Situated in the World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, the secluded island features about seven miles (11 km) of pristine coastline surrounded by fringing coral reef.

When you arrive at the Orpheus Island heliport, the island staff welcomes you and offers you a a refreshing cocktail. Explore the island and enjoy its facilities or, opt for a transfer to your very own secluded beach. In absolute seclusion on your private island, enjoy your chef-prepared gourmet picnic hamper with refreshments, beach comb and snorkel straight off the beach into pellucid blue-green waters to discover the mystical coral gardens and brightly coloured tropical fish of this under water world. 

Once three hours have passed, return to the helipad for your flight. Pass over the Palm Island archipelago on your way back to Townsville, marveling at the scenery as it unfolds around you. Upon arrival, make your own way to your next destination with great memories of an afternoon getaway on a gorgeous island.
