About this activity
You can request hotel pickup or make your own way to the Townsville Airport, where you meet an expert pilot and receive a safety orientation before boarding the helicopter. Up in the sky, the pilot provides detailed commentary about all the sights you see. If you have a question, just ask on a two-way audio headset.

Read on to learn about the two flights you can choose from:

City Flight (10 minutes):

Fly over Townsville by helicopter for aerial views of all the key landmarks, including the iconic Castle Hill, a heritage-listed pink granite mountain that stands 938 feet (286 meters) high in the heart of Townsville. Take in the long sandy beaches of the Strand and the bustling activity around Townsville Port, the third largest seaport in Queensland. Then follow the Ross River from the port through the city for a final look from above before gently landing at the airport to end your amazing flight.

Magnetic Island Scenic Flight (30 minutes):

See all the same sights as the City Flight option above, and fly over Cleveland Bay to Magnetic Island, located five miles (8 km) offshore from the city of Townsville. Part of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, Cleveland Bay and the surrounding waters of the Coral Sea host abundant marine wildlife and fringing reefs, some visible from the air. Glide over Magnetic Island to admire scenery of rugged cliffs, dense rainforest and secluded bays with clear turquoise waters. Your pilot points out the landmarks of this pristine island, where national parks protect nearly 70 percent of the land. Keep your camera handy for remarkable views that you can only get from the air. Enjoy the return journey to Townsville Airport to end your flight.
