Canberra is a great little city for day tours and scenic adventures. There is so much going on in the heart of the CBD including the old and new Parliament House, the War Memorial, the High Court of Australia, the National Museum and so on. It’s easy to get lost spending a day checking out all the awesome activities and landmarks scattered around the city. But when you sit back and take a trip to a higher vantage point, Canberra is an incredibly beautiful spot. Under the guise of the iconic Black Mountain, the city is a visual feast and hopping on a helicopter is the best way to observe its wonder. Around it lies the dense Brindabella and Namadgi National Parks, which glisten white during the cold winter months. With such a vast range of scenery and flight experiences in Canberra, it’d be rude not to try a joy flight here. AirShare is home of the cheapest flights available in the ACT, so make sure to have a look around!
For residents and visitors looking for a quick helicopter trip around the city, the Canberra Lap Of The Lake Helitour is cost-friendly flight along Lake Burley Griffin.

A more expansive tour of the city is the Capital Highlights Helicopter Tour. Spanning over 30 minutes, the chopper conducts the usual trail along Lake Burley Griffin which penetrates through the city, and continues out toward the hinterland of Cotter Reserve and the Brindabella Ranges. This is an ideal flight for anyone looking for a more substantial helicopter tour of Canberra’s most popular offerings.
The High Country Helicopter Flight introduces passengers to Canberra with a jaunt along Lake Burley Griffin with views out to Black Mountain, Parliament House, Anzac Parade and The War Memorial (to name a few). Once the helicopter reaches the western point of the lake, get ready for wild! What ensues is an adventure through the wilderness of the Brindabella and Namadgi National Parks. During winter you’ll witness the snow-capped planes of majestic forestry. This is an awesome 1 hour journey over the dense national parks which surround the nation’s capital.
