Cairns is one of our favourite parts of Queensland. It embodies a rich culture of iconically ‘Aussie’ characteristics that supersedes many other popular towns and cities across the country. The flora and fauna of Cairns can be brutal, but incredibly rewarding, and if you get out to see Cairns, you will be rewarded in spades. Based so far out from any capital city, Cairns is surrounded by (and host to) some of the world’s most picturesque scenery. Landmarks such as the Great Barrier Reef, The Daintree Rainforest and Port Douglas closely neighbour Cairns in the northern Queensland region. This means that scenic flights of any shape and size around this region are breathtaking. AirShare is home to the cheapest prices for the best scenic flights in Cairns, so have a look and see what we’ve got on offer!

For anyone who wants to check out the almighty Great Barrier Reef, then the almighty Reef & Port Douglas Scenic Flight is an extensive hour-long trip which navigates you around the incredible Great Barrier Reef and Port Douglas.

If you’re more interested in touring the Great Barrier Reef in a helicopter, the Private Great Barrier Reef Helitour is a 30 minute flight which highlights 3 stunning sand islands on the Great Barrier Reef. With views of Green Island, Vlasoff Sand Cay and Upolu Sand Cay, this is a great helitour if you’re based in Cairns.
Following on the theme of Great Barrier Reef flights, the Reef Hopper Scenic Flight is a 40 minute joy flight on a fixed-wing aircraft. For $199 per passenger, you’ll experience a range of notable landmarks such as Double Island, Arlington Reef, and Palm Cove – to name a few.
Perhaps a flight over the Great Barrier Reef is not your style. You prefer swooping valleys through a green utopia where people congregate to have markets and travel on skyrail. The Kuranda Rainforest Helicopter Flight is a super awesome flight spanning for 30 minutes where you’ll be taken out to the Barron Gorge National Park and for a zip around the Kuranda Rainforest. This is not to neglect the more coastal facets of Cairns though, as you’ll have views of the northern beaches of Cairns and Palm Cove!
As an extension of the Kuranda Rainforest Helitour, spend an extra 15 minutes exploring the Great Barrier Reef on the Reef & Rainforest Helicopter Flight! Before heading out to the Kuranda Rainforest, you’ll fly out of Cairns to visit Palm Cove, Vlasoff Sand Cay and Green Island. This is an excellent choice for the flyer who is hungry to experience all of Cairns’ wonderous sceneries!
