Prepare for jaw-dropping views! Stretching over 1,200 miles up and down the Queensland coastline, the fantastic beauty of the World-Heritage listed Great Barrier Reef is best seen from above. Half the size of Texas, it can be seen from outer space, and boasts 2,900 individual reefs, 600 continental islands and 300 coral keys. During your flight, you'll also soar over the Whitsunday Islands. Named by Capt. Cook as he sailed through the passage on a Sunday in 1770, the Whitsundays are a group of more than 150 islands and islets situated in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. From your sky-high perspective, you'll have views of Hamilton Island, the four Molle Islands, Long Island, Whitehaven Beach, and Hill Inlet. The pilot will also head out over other sections of the reef including Hardy, Hook and Bait Reefs, Hook Island and exclusive Hayman Island before returning.
