Gold Coast Helicopters
Taking a sightseeing tour with one of the Gold Coast helicopters is no longer a 'once in a lifetime' experience - it's affordability now means you can budget to do it as many times as you choose
... and even if you still consider it a little luxury, it's well worth indulging yourself during your Surfers Paradise holiday.
From the tingle of anticipation you'll feel the moment you book the flight; to the flutters and butterflies you'll have when you climb aboard; to the absolute thrill of vertical lift-off, this will be an experience to remember!
And did we mention the spectacular views and scenery?
Using headphone and speakers, you'll be able to communicate with your pilot who will provide interesting commentary throughout the flight, pointing out items of interest and answering any questions you may have.
If you're after a photograph of something in particular, be sure to mention it to the pilot beforehand and he'll do his best to ensure you're lined up for a great shot.
If you're not familiar with the region, a Gold Coast helicopters tour is a great way to get the 'big picture' of contrasting scenic areas that make up the Gold Coast and her surrounds.
You'll view the natural beauty of mountains, canals and rivers; the thick, lush rainforests of the Gold Coast national parks.
Although noise restrictions in national parks mean that helicopters are not permitted to fly down for waterfall close-ups, you'll nonetheless see some breathtaking hinterland scenery.
A flight along the coastline is a highlight of any air travel, plus the singular beauty of sparkling blue oceans and golden Gold Coast beaches that stretch for miles and miles in either direction will add to your delight.
And, at a helicopter's flying height, you may even be lucky enough to see dolphins frolicking in the surf!
And then there are the man-made attractions which you'll easily identify from the air, including colourful theme parks, the many Gold Coast golf courses, resorts and other Surfers Paradise landmarks including the Q1 tower, and Jupiters Casino.
A range of tours is available from various Gold Coast helicopter tour operators. Prices start from around $45 per person, which will get you a 5 minute helicopter ride around the take-off area.
Subsequent tours go up in 5-minute blocks to around 30 minutes, and of course, venture further and further afield to take in other sights. Longer, custom-designed flights are also available.
