It can be easy to miss the forest for the trees when you’re visiting a big city like Brisbane – driving around the city in taxis and buses, it can be easy to forget that there’s more to this metropolis than just skyscrapers and shopping malls. Take in the city from the sky on this scenic helicopter tour from east to west. Fly around the towering suburban mountains Coot-Tha and Gravatt, see the Brisbane River winding through the city center, and get bird’s-eye views of sights like the Gabba and the Kangaroo Point Cliffs.

It was a delightful experience and a very comfortable helicopter ride. Our pilot Niko was very friendly and knowledgeable about the areas over which we were flying. I could not recommend this experience more highly!

In Brisbane there is a bus pass you buy in shops or at the bus station and very easy to get on a bus from city centre to right outside the airdrome. Was it worth it…..absolutely! Our pilot was so calm and having thought I would be nervous, I actually found myself totally relaxed immediately and therefore just loved every second. You only live once. Do it…
Exciting and wonderful experience

It was me and my girlfriend first helicopter experience, the trip was great, Niko the pilot made us feel welcome, comfortable and safe. The sky and weather was awesome when we flied on the 15-7-2020. My girlfriend felt dizzy after 10mins on the flight, so fly base on your body condition. Overall very enjoyable experience.
