Guide to Scenic Flights in the Whitsundays Posted by Hamilton Island - 8 December 2021 Recent visitors, Emma and Thom of ExploreShaw, created this Guide to Scenic Flights in the Whitsundays. With so much to see from the air, and so many options – we felt this would be a helpful article if you are planning to do some aerial sight-seeing when you next visit. “One of the absolute bucket list, can’t miss experiences for any visit to the Whitsundays is a scenic flight over the Whitsunday Islands and the Great Barrier Reef. This region is absolutely so beautiful from the sky, where you can appreciate a much greater perspective of the layout of the islands and the stunning turquoise water swirling between them. The Whitsunday Islands lead right out to the Great Barrier Reef so jumping on a scenic flight gives you a great opportunity to see two of Australia’s most incredible places at the same time. We have actually done a couple of scenic flights over the Whitsundays, one in a regular small plane and the other in a helicopter, so we feel like we can definitely help you choose your scenic flight adventure."
