Majestic rainforest reveals and a taste of the Tablelands
Our 20-minute rainforest scenic Cairns heli tours provide a ‘taste’ of this incredible World Heritage-listed natural region. Cairns sits on a floodplain to the south of the mouth of the mighty Barron River. The Barron's headwaters start in the Mount Hypipamee National Park at an elevation of 3,900 ft. The river flows 65 kilometres across fertile volcanic soils of the Atherton Tablelands and then journeys through the quaint village of Kuranda before cascading down the 850 ft high Barron Falls and moving across the Cairns floodplains out into the Coral Sea.
The Barron Gorge is an impressive natural feature carved out of the Great Dividing Range and the Falls at its head are intimidating to behold when in full flight during the tropical wet season. Our Cairns heli tours track up through the Barron Gorge up to and over the Barron Falls, passing the over the world-famous Skyrail Rainforest Cableway where it spans the river and around the village of Kuranda before turning for the coast and descending over the lush eastern slopes of the Great Dividing Range on the return leg with panoramic views over Cairns city and out to the Reef.
