Why a Cairns Scenic Flight is a Great Gift Idea

Updated: Jan 16, 2023

Does someone close to you have a special occasion approaching and you’d really like to surprise them with a unique and memorable gift? Something super cool, a giant leap away from the pedestrian gifts that have most likely been received many times over. A bucket list gift.

Whether you are lucky enough to be a Cairns local or an adventurous tourist to Tropical North Queensland, there’s not much that can outshine a Cairns helicopter tour with Zoom Helicopters, taking in the unforgettable panoramic views of the Great Barrier Reef and Cairns Tropical Rainforests.

Here are just a few reasons why a Cairns helicopter ride will make such an amazing gift for a loved one:

The Wow Factor

How often have you been travelling abroad and rifled through all the beautiful postcards in the tourist shops? The most amazing photos on those postcards are taken from the sky, most likely from a helicopter (or a drone, these days). If you have ever researched a Great Barrier Reef tour online, you would find that the tourism operators include a number of aerial images, even though they offer boat tours. Why not bypass the postcards and actually be a part of the aerial scenery?

For social media aficionados, your photos and videos from your Cairns scenic flight will certainly take front and centre position on your Instagram, TikTok and Meta pages. Zoom helicopters offer high resolution videos of your tour, ensuring a crystal clear memento of your special occasion.

The Excitement

As mentioned in a previous post about the exhilaration of Cairns helicopter tours, soaring over the sandy cays and coral reefs that make up the Great Barrier Reef is just downright exciting! From lift-off to landing, everything is a new, or relatively new experience that will be sure to leave you grinning from ear to ear, long after the event.


How much do we spend on gifts for special occasions for our loved ones? Often, we will buy several gifts when we are not sure if any of them are truly what the lucky person truly wants.

You’ll be pleasantly surprised at how affordable our scenic helicopter flights are. Why not check out our Zoom Helicopters tours where you can find our prices for all our Cairns heli tours, ranging from our Zoom Around Cairns to our Reef and Rainforest tours.

A Different Perspective

If you’re a Cairns local or have been to Cairns several times, you may have only seen the city from the air when flying in or out on a commercial airline. Even on a big aircraft, Cairns looks amazing, doesn’t it? And it’s most likely that you have been on the reef more than a few times, however most likely not by helicopter. Imagine having the opportunity to experience Cairns, the Great Barrier Reef and the Rainforest from a completely different point of view. Literally!

Soaring over the skies of Tropical North Queensland will certainly provide a unique perspective when viewed from these angles. You’ll soon reconnect with your love and appreciation of this beautiful city and its surrounds.

The Gift of Giving

It’s that initial moment when they open their gift and realise what it actually is that’s worth its weight in gold, right? That genuine look of surprise and happiness is when you know you’ve hit the nail on the head in giving your loved one a scenic helicopter flight over Cairns, the Great Barrier Reef and the Rainforest.

These a just a few reasons why a Cairns scenic flight is a great gift idea. I’m sure you can think of a few more, so why not contact Zoom Helicopters today and gift your loved one the experience and memory of a lifetime.
