Tip of Australia Scenic Flight

Highlights

  • Your tour begins at Horn Island Base, located on Airport Road at Horn Island Airport, where you’re advised to arrive well in advance of your morning or afternoon departure time — further details are communicated after booking. On arrival at the helipad, you’ll greet your pilot and board the chopper after a safety briefing. Belt up and, as the propeller whirs into life, begin to absorb aerial views of the Torres Strait archipelago. Drink in vistas of coral reefs, shipwrecks, and paradise islands before gliding over The Tip, Australia’s northernmost point. See, too, Peak Point, the white-sand beaches of Punsand Bay, and the historic Possession Island, which Captain Cook declared as English soil in 1770. After 45 minutes in the air, return to land and bid your pilot farewell.
