The experience is about 2 hours long, including a Sky Dance presentation, refreshments, flight briefings, and a 45min to 1 hour flight around the islands. The flight route takes you from Archerfield Airport out east just south of the Brisbane City. After overflying the Brisbane Coastline, Moreton Bay and the coral reefs come into sight – teeming with marine life this area is one of the most important costal resources in Australia. Dolphins, Sting Ray, Sharks, Turtles, and an abundance of other fish populate the waters. After flying across Stradbroke Island, the flight takes you up the eastern coastline towards Point Lookout and Amity Point. Crossing the shallow waterway in-between Moreton and Stradbroke Island is especially beautiful during the changing of the tides, as the water currents can flow at tremendous speeds creating wild rapids and standing waves in the small channel. After flying up the eastern coastline of Southern Moreton Island and across the famous Sand Dunes, the return journey will take you down the Western coastline of Southern Moreton and past numerous ship wrecks and fisheries. Flying over Peel Island and Horseshoe Bay, it’s homeward bound to Archerfield.
This flight route takes you on our choice flight route with some of the most interesting sights on these 2 largest sand islands in the world. If you know where you want to fly and it is within the flight range, custom flight routes are available as well. If you know what you want to see, talk with your pilot on the day and he or she can substitute different parts of the island.
