Great Barrier Reef from the Sky

The great barrier reef is one of nature’s best creations, is one of Australia’s top highlights and is definitely on the bucket list of most travelers. For many years, I have dreamt of seeing it up close. The last few days, I have had a chance to explore a lot of the great barrier reef and the rainforests located on the mainland. Today, I took my great barrier reef experience to another level by taking a scenic flight ride over the Great Barrier Reef.

Great Barrier Reef from the sky
Seated in a 7 seater propeller aircraft, I got to see the Great Barrier Reef from as low as 1000 feet. The green island, the Michealmas Island, Apollo G, Middle G and many other famous reefs of the Great Barrier could be seen from above. It was a tad cloudy and in spite of that, the views were really gorgeous.

These scenic flights are something I would recommend heavily. And especially for the Great Barrier Reef!!
