Explore the many landscapes North Queensland has to offer on a full day helicopter tour from Cairns. Fly south from Cairns and between Queensland's two highest mountains, Mt Bartle Frere and Mt Bellenden Ker, before heading west up the Johnston River Gorge. Watch the landscape change from lush rainforest to the orange of the outback as you cross the Great Dividing Range and arrive at Undara Volcanic National Park. Take a guided tour, a journey back in time to Gondwana, where volcanos ruled this part of the land. See extinct craters and the incredible lava tubes that wind their way through the National Park. After your tour and lunch at Undara, fly further south to the stunning Blencoe Falls and Wallaman Falls, the tallest single drop waterfall in the Southern Hemisphere - a sight not to be missed from the air. Turning for home, your helicopter will track up the coast over Hinchinbrook Island before flying over Dunk, Frankland and Fitzroy Islands, and the Great Barrier Reef.
