We’ll head north past the coloured sands of Teewah  into the Great Sandy Biosphere along the Cooloola coast.

Our lunchtime landing is on the grass airstrip in front of the iconic Orchid Beach Trading Post and Driftwood Bar.

After a 2-hour lunch and leisure break at Orchid Beach we begin the homeward flight.

We’ll track along the aerial route of 75-Mile Beach, flying low and watching out for marine life and shipwrecks.

Our last leg, but not the least spectacular, takes us around Double Island Point and over the Noosa River to Lake Weyba.
