  • Description
    • Take off on a thrilling helicopter flight over Far North Queensland
    • Tour the historical gold rush town and gold mine at Tyrconnell
    • Enjoy a gourmet picnic lunch surrounded by classic Aussie bushland

    Exploring Australia’s vast bushland entirely on foot would be a slow and near-impossible feat, which is why the best (and most exciting) way to do it is by flight. A helicopter ride gives you an understanding of the grand scale of the landscape that you couldn’t fathom from the ground. 

    So here’s the deal: you’ll take off in a helicopter from Cairns and sweep over the scenic vistas of Far North Queensland from buzzing heights. Looking down on the classic Aussie terrain, you’ll pass over the boundless serenity of The Gulf Savannah and spot secluded swimming holes and gorges along the way. Parts of this bushland are actually still untouched by humans and the epic wilderness of it all is staggering.

    Once you’ve passed over the Tablelands and rugged outback country, it’s time to touch down at Mount Mulligan Station to explore the mining towns and learn about the rich history of the area. The station is named for the 18km sandstone ridge that is Mount Mulligan, an amazing natural monument that’s bigger than Uluru and a sacred Dreamtime spot to the local Aboriginal people. You’ll be treated to tours of the old township, cemetery and mine ruins left from the gold rush, including a stop at the famous Tyrconnell gold mine, for a full fix of Aussie outback history.

    While in town you can settle down for a picnic, including a gourmet lunch and refreshments you can enjoy out in the fresh air. If you want to see the iconic Australian bushland, experience some history and enjoy the thrill of flying, this is the best of everything all packaged up and ready for you.
