Helicopter Experiences

Viewed from the air, the turquoise waters and rainforest fringed coastline of Tropical North Queensland come to life in a number of bespoke helicopter experiences tailored for guests staying at Silky Oaks Lodge. Ancient rainforests and mountains lead to the rugged beauty of the Great Dividing Range where rivers and creeks run year-round, creating dramatic cascading waterfalls. Fly from Mossman Gorge and follow the Daintree River to Cape Tribulation. Another aerial odyssey takes guests soaring over one of the greatest natural wonders on the planet, the World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef. Visible from space, it’s even better close up in a helicopter!
