Photo Diary: Scenic Flight Above the Great Barrier Reef!

The largest living thing on Earth is a site that demands to be seen - so much so that the Great Barrier Reef is visible from outer space! While most people opt to experience the 2300km-long ecosystem up close by snorkeling or scuba diving, the reef just as beautiful from above. 

From the mainland, scenic flights take you from Airlie Beach to high above the breathtaking GBR and neighboring Whitsunday Islands, which are home to the pristine Whitehaven Beach.

Your flight is an hour-long ride filled with deep blue skies, crystal clear aqua seas and a swirl of colors made up by the unbelievable reef and beaches below.
