Fun for the Whole Family

We took our 2 kids (12 & 14) to experience forest flying while on a 24 hour stopover in Mackay, and we are so glad we did. Every part of the experience was brilliant. Amazing scenery, good fun and a unique way to see the forest. Owners are fantastic people – knowledgeable and accommodating. We have been traveling for 2 weeks, and my 12 year old emphatically rated forest flying the best thing we have done these holidays. Highly recommended.
