Helicopter rides are quite unlike anything else, combining exhilaration and breathtaking views. If this is your first time in a helicopter, chances are you’ll be surprised at just fast you ascend to a great height. Once you settle in to the flight you’re sure to want it to go on and on, shooting across the landscape in record time.
The Gold Coast is the perfect place to enjoy this experience, with awesome views over the stunning beaches and surf spots on the coastline, as well as the chance to see the system of inland canals and all the iconic landmarks from above.
Of the many things to do in the Gold Coast, this has to be one of the very best. You might even have the chance to spot some wildlife. Depending on the time of year you visit, you’ll be in prime position to spot whales migrating up Australia’s east coast, or returning south with their calves! If it suits your schedule, whale watching season is a great time to take a helicopter flight. Want an even bigger thrill? How about the Jet Boat Ride and Helicopter Flight? These powerful Gold Coast jet boats are a real adrenaline rush, with spins and twists and turns through the water.

You’ll shoot towards Wave Break Island , South Stradbroke Island and into the Gold Coast seaway. It’s rounded off in style with a 10-minute flight, taking off from Gold Coast Sheraton Mirage Heliport. This is a combo not to miss for adrenaline junkies!
