    Buckle up for one of the most popular helicopter rides in Cairns! Kick off your 30-minute scenic helicopter flight from Cairns airport, showcasing views of the city of Cairns and Trinity inlet, passing False Cape, Mount Yarrabah, Mission Bay and Cape Grafton. From there you’ll strike out to the inner edge of the Reef and Green Island, a 6,000-year-old coral sand island that boasts its native rain forest eco-system. Tracking north, you’ll explore the western side of Arlington Reef, home to a diverse range of marine creatures – turtles, sharks and sting rays. Continuing north you’ll circle Vlasoff Cay, a tiny sand island in the middle of the Great Barrier Reef that reduces to only a few square metres in size at high tide. Next, you’ll head west over Upolu Cay and back to Cairns taking in fantastic views of the North Queensland coastline framed by the lush rainforest-covered eastern slopes of the Great Dividing Range.
