Picnicking on top of a remote waterfall in the heart of the Daintree Rainforest is one of the coolest things to experience when in Tropical North Queensland.

Zip off with eco-certified operator Nautilus Aviation from Silky Oaks’ own helipad heading for the coast. View the extraordinary meeting place of the rainforest and reef from a thrilling new perspective. Get the camera ready!

Heading back inland, cue the Jurassic Park soundtrack and soar at Pterodactyl heights over the 180-million-year-old Daintree Rainforest before an exhilarating touchdown at Stewarts Creek Waterfall, a magical location only accessible by helicopter. Soak up wildly beautiful views and strip-off for a swim (maybe even a skinny dip!) in the cool, spring-fed waters.

Experience a bucket-list worthy high with a gourmet picnic atop the falls complete with sparkling wine for a real ‘pinch me’ moment.

Operator disclaimer: The waterfall landing site can be affected by large volumes of rain. On the rare occasion the helicopter is unable to land at the waterfall the tour will continue on an extended 30-minute reef-scenic flight, converting the experience into a 45-minute reef and rainforest scenic flight. Passengers will be given the prepared picnic lunch for enjoyment post flight and Nautilus Aviation will advise and assist with any refunds applicable.

Passengers need to have a good mobility to participate in this experience due to uneven ground at the waterfall location.
