Great Barrier Reef Scenic Flights & Balloon Rides

Scenic Flights in Port Douglas

Seeing new places from the air is always an interesting experience. If you're on holiday in Port Douglas or simply visiting for a while, the absolute best way to get an overall picture of this beautiful location is from high up in the sky.

Most flying adventures focus on the natural features of the area. It's a true 'where the forest meets the sea' kind of place, with the World Heritage Listed Daintree Rainforest coming right down from the mountains to the shoreline, meeting the reef-rich ocean in a narrow strip of clean white sand. You'll only get a true sense of the scale of the place from the air, so viewing by chartered flight, hot air balloon or helicopter is the way to go. Check out our ready to go tours below, or for more ideas and flying adventure options, take a look at the Port Douglas Flying Adventures category in our directory.
