You’ve explored the gorge from within, now experience the vastness and beauty of the Gulf Savannah region on a scenic helicopter flight for a spectacular birds-eye view over Cobbold Gorge, Newcastle Ranges and Robin Hood Station.

Your heli flight reveals the true scale of the gorge, amongst its surrounding sandstone escarpments and savannah grasslands, and is a thrilling and unforgettable experience, so impressive and such a fabulous thing to do! And you have a range of flights to choose from (further detailed below).

Hop in for a 15-minute Sandstone Discovery flight taking in Cobbold Gorge, the Village and surrounds, or fly further afield for your 30-minute Heli Property Tour to truly appreciate the incredible Queensland outback. Perhaps choose a wonderful Heli Sunset Picnic complete with cheese platter and wine, or for a unique fishing trip, head off on an amazing Heli Fishing Charter.

And if you’d prefer something other than our set flights – the sky is (almost) the limit, as other options for helicopter flights are only limited by your imagination and budget, from gem fossicking at Agate Creek, to an extended charter exploring the many hidden gorges or chasms that dot our outback landscape. Simply let us know your idea or destination and we’ll negotiate a price.

Whichever you choose – a heli flight is the perfect way to top off your Cobbold adventure – literally!

Please note there’s a maximum of three passengers on our scenic helicopter flights (subject to maximum weight limits per flight). 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!)

We operate under Australian aviation regulations where the max. weight limit per seat is 136kgs. Children under 2 years of age sit on guardians lap with a lap sash. Children 2 years of age and older pay in full for a seat.

Bookings are essential. Book today to secure your preferred date and flight. Flight time is advised on check-in.


Take off into the skies and marvel at the outback when you take in more than 80 square kilometres of striking parallel fractures in the Hampstead Sandstone caused by movement along the Robertson Fault line. See Cobbold Gorge in perspective and trace its origins as it winds through the sandstone, then fly along the Robertson River and Agate Creek before coming back and doing a lap around Cobbold Village. You’ll be so glad you did!
Minimum 2, maximum 3 passengers.
