The Top Five Australian Scenic Helicopter Tours

The Top Five Australian Scenic Helicopter Tours

If you are planning a trip to Australia, you may already be aware of the amazing sights. While your time may be short, here are the top five scenic helicopter tours, which should not be missed.

The Great Barrier Reef:

The Great Barrier Reef is simply stunning when viewed from above. During your scenic helicopter tours you will get to see the fantastic range of colours and amazing beauty of this natural phenomenon. The helicopters can hover to allow you to get an amazing view and take some great photographs. There are a number of options to choose from and many of these fly from Port Douglas or Cairns.

Kakadu National Park:

This amazing national park is renowned for its giant rock formations, cascading waterfalls and amazingly unique diversity of flora and fauna. When viewed from a helicopter you can experience an amazing perspective on this fantastic area of natural beauty. A helicopter of this area is certainly wonderful allowing you to experience the dramatic Arnhemland escarpment and stunning sights to create an unforgettable trip.


The magnificent Olgas and Uluru viewed from above is simply overwhelming. Uluru has been a popular tourist destination for many years, but recently most visitors have chosen not to climb as a mark of respect for the Aboriginal culture. This means that the best way to experience this fantastic rock formation is by helicopter. A helicopter scenic tour will offer panoramic views including breathtaking scenery which is unique to the Red centre and The Olgas. This is a rock formation of 36 massive domes which are spread out throughout the desert. The patterns and colours of this area of Australia creates an awe inspiring vista which will create unforgettable memories that will last a lifetime.

The Bungle Bungles:

The very best way to see this amazing rock formation is from the air. The striped domes are spread over an area over 450 square kilometres and are truly spectacular. The Bungle Bungles were only discovered back in 1983 but it has quickly become one of the most popular destinations for tourists.

The Kimberleys:

Whether you visit during the dry or wet season, the remote region of Kimberley is a must see for those wanting to experience the true beauty of the outback. The Kimberleys are located in the northwest of Australia and demonstrates the perfect balance of gushing waterfalls, dramatic gorges, spectacular fauna and unique flora. Although there are jeep trails and paths throughout the Kimberleys, the best way to experience this area is from the air with scenic helicopter tours.
