The Mt Warning and Border Ranges Scenic Flight is the most spectacular in Southeast Queensland.

The Mt Warning and Border Ranges Scenic Flight is by far the most spectacular of any Scenic Flight in this part of Australia. Hands down. Mt Warning and Mt Barney are the 2 volcanic plugs that were once the centre of two massive shield volcanos. This flight takes you on a journey, back in time, around the perimeter of both volcanic rims, one of which being the second largest shield volcano in the world! Fly into a lost world – viewing the volcanic flows and earths topography from the sky. Get inspired with an unmatched perspective on the geological beginnings of theses incredible mountain ranges.

Departing to the south of Brisbane, this flight route is our most highly recommended. You can get a real feel for how the area was formed with the aerial perspective – flying through the Scenic Rim and the Tweed Valley Caldera. Mt Warning, The Lamington Plateau, Springbrook National Park, Mt Tamborine, The Lost World Plateau, The Border Ranges, The Scenic Rim (Mt Barney, Mt Lindesay, Mt Maroon, and Mt French), to name a few, are all destinations through this flight. Exploring the incredible remnants of these shield volcanoes is nothing short of inspiring. Once standing over 6000ft tall, these volcanos were once part of a different age as the Australian continent moved south. This volcanic history has given birth to the massive rock structures, vast mountain ranges, pristine coastlines, and rich sub-tropical rainforests that we can explore today.

Whether you have lived in Queensland your whole life, or are just visiting the area, you are guaranteed to experience this special part of Australia from a new perspective and leave inspired, perhaps, with a new found curiosity of what gems are still hidden in these mountains and valleys.

A surprising number of people who fly over this area return with us on our 1 – 5 night hiking / climbing adventures through the Scenic Rim, between Binna Burra and O’Reilly’s, and around the beautiful Mt Barney. Other popular destinations are climbing adventures up Logans Ridge on Mt Barney, or up Razorback Ridge to access the famous Lost World Plateau – Our Hike Climb Fly adventures are truely unique, and tailored for luxury! For the extreme athletes and birdwatchers alike. Read more about our Sky Dance – Hike Climb Fly.


The return flight takes you back into the city and to Archerfield Airport. But we hope that your imagination stays out in the mountains and valleys where you may return to someday soon…

One of the most spectacular things we have done! We thought we had seen the Lamington and mt warning area a lot, but flying through the valley and then seeing Mt Warning like this was a whole different kind of experience. Then flying up along the Gold Coast beaches and past the Q1 and buildings was beautiful as well. The whole experience was a hit and great value for money. These guys go the extra mile and really made us feel looked after.

We did the scenicrim flight with Skydance yesterday. Josh treated us like VIP’s we were spoilt with champagne and chocolate strawberries before the flight. We met our Pilot Paul who made us very relaxed with his professionalism but also his friendly disposition. The 75min flight was awesome we saw so much of our beautiful scenic rim. We live in the scenic rim and Paul made sure we saw our places of interest. We circled the top of Mt Warning and then flew up the length of Gold Coast beaches. This flight was brilliant we would highly recommend this company.

Amazing experience.
We were looked after from the moment we arrived. Flight was brilliant with the scenic rim looking incredible from the air. We also saw the beaches and coastline. Highly recommend this 75 min flight.
