Gold Coast Scenic Flights & Helicopter Rides

Up, up and away... if you have a hankering to be up with the birds in the clear blue sky, the Gold Coast is one of the best places in the world to do it. The view is amazing - with the deep blue Pacific Ocean in the east, the canals and highrises of the Gold Coast on land, stretching to the beautiful mountain scenery of the Gold Coast hinterland in the west and beyond, you'll never be short of things to check out.

There are a number of helicopter charter companies and scenic flight providers on the Gold Coast and most of them operate from Mariner's Cove at the Spit.

You can also get on board a scenic flight from the Gold Coast airport and other airstrips around the Coast.
