I did the Franklin-Gordon flight and it was an absolute blast. Professional and friendly staff top off what is an absolute thrill ride of an experience. Special thanks to our pilot Mike.

A much better way to see the area and rivers compared to a long, slow boat ride. Our pilot showed us the highlights of the area and a very thrilling landing into a very narrow, winding gorge. It is a must do for Strahan!

Wow such an awe inspiring ride in a tiny little plane. Felt like we were birds in the sky. Our pilot was funny and a delight to travel with. The Majestic Gordon and Franklin are a sight to behold and such a rare find.

If you want to do something special, go and enjoy a flight on a seaplane! It's awesome, really! The flight, the things you see underway, landing at the Gordon river. It's one of my favorites ever! My visit was about 7 to 8 years ago...More

My partner and I had the thrill of a helicopter flight piloted by 'Hoey'. We flew around Mt Jukes and over the densest rainforest areas. Hoey gave a running commentary of the area and its history. We followed an old railway line and flew down...More
