Scenic helicopter flights over Cobbold Gorge reveal the true scale of the gorge, amongst its surrounding sandstone escarpments and savannah grasslands. Our helicopter flights are a thrilling and unforgettable experience. There simply is no better way to appreciate the vastness and beauty of the Gulf Savannah region, than from the air. We operate scenic helicopter flights throughout the day. They can be booked in 15-minute or 30-minute durations. We also offer a stunning, sunset heli-picnic which includes a cheese platter and your choice of wine. For the mad keen fisher folk, we offer an exclusive charter heli-fishing adventure to Fish Hole, which is located on the station.
Please note there’s a maximum of three passengers on our scenic helicopter flights (subject to weight limits).
If you’re travelling solo and love the idea of a heli flight, we’ll try to ‘buddy’ you with other travellers where possible so you can fly at the reduced rate, although please note – we’re unable to guarantee this. And if you prefer to fly solo – the sky is all yours (with our fabulous pilot of course!)
The 15-minute and 30-minute flights operate throughout the day, daily. In addition to our set tours, which are outlined below, the options for helicopter flights are limited only by your imagination and budget. You come up with the idea or destination and we’ll negotiate a price. From gem fossicking at Agate Creek, to an extended charter exploring the many hidden gorges or chasms that dot our outback landscape. Bookings are essential. Book today to secure your preferred date, flight and time.
