Great Barrier Reef and Whitsundays Helicopter Experience

The Great Barrier Reef and Whitsunday Reef Helicopter Flight is the perfect substitute for the ‘Airlie Beach – Great Barrier Reef with Whitehaven Landing Helicopter Tour’ if you are on a budget or short on time. It encompasses a helicopter flight around 2 internationally recognised (and for good reason) landmarks on the north-eastern coast of Australia.

The flight departs from Airlie Beach and directs itself up the eastern coast along the wonderful Great Barrier Reef – the largest living thing on earth. Nestled in and around the reef is incredible sea-life with fish that have never been sighted outside of this region. You will navigate the famous Heart Reef before heading further up to view a collection of the other clusters of reef.

As you come around the Great Barrier Reef and begin to travel south, the chopper will enter the Whitsundays. Here you’ll experience a wide variety of secluded islands, pristine beaches and beautifully coloured reefs. You’ll encounter Whitehaven Beach, which has been voted the best beach in Australia. The milky white sandy upon the deep blue water shows for some excellent viewing. For a stop on Whitehaven beach, check out the ‘Airlie Beach – Great Barrier Reef with Whitehaven Landing Helicopter Tour’.

This super helicopter experience takes you over some miraculous Aussie icons on the eastern coastline. On the 60 minute flight, there is not a single minute where you’ll experience views anything less than breathtaking. For anyone short on time or funds, this is the perfect helicopter experience around the Great Barrier Reef and the Whitsundays.
