It’s 9.30am on a Saturday morning and just across from the iconic Mount Jim Crow (Baga National Park), located 25 kilometres east of Rockhampton and 12 minutes from the heart of Yeppoon, a helicopter rotor is firing up for a day of expeditions.
Passengers of all ages begin to arrive, raring and ready for an exhilarating and magical experience on board the R44 to witness a side of Rockhampton, Yeppoon and the spectacular Southern Great Barrier Reef that they have never seen before.
Blessed with a climate that boasts endless days of clear blue skies perfect for flying, this special experience is bound to be one you will never forget.
