Queensland From The Air
Thanks to my awesome Dad, we took our trip up North to “the next level” (according to the marketing brochure) by enjoying a private helicopter ride over the Outback to Mount Mulligan, above the Rainforest to Cape Kimberly and Shipwreck Beach then out to sea, soaring over the Great Barrier Reef. It was one of those once-in-a-lifetime experiences where you get to see the World from an otherworldly perspective, and I loved every minute of it.
We dropped down on the very edge of Mount Mulligan (the picture of the big mountain/rock looking thing), sipped sodas on a beach accessible ONLY by helicopter, and watched whales and sea turtles dance along the edge of the reef. Plus, we did it all in a big yellow helicopter that felt so “Mission: Impossible!”
We capped off our trip by holding Koalas, petting kangaroos, and eating an absolutely obscene amount of food.
More pictures of the Helicopter trip are on my flickr site here.
