  • Duration: 20 Minutes (approx.)

Enjoy the air-conditioned comfort of your own private helicopter for a luxurious transfer between Townsville & Magnetic Island.

We conduct transfers to and from our private hangar near Townsville Airport & Nelly Bay on Magnetic Island (the helipad near Base Backpackers). For your safety and comfort the helicopter will be powered down upon landing to assist you with exiting the aircraft and any bags you have with you. The transfer can be combined with a scenic flight of the Island or surrounding areas. Check out this video to see what a day on Maggie can be like.

Please note: there is limited space & weight in a helicopter for luggage. You will need to note the number/size of any luggage and an approximate weight when booking. Passengers and luggage will be weighed prior to departure and must be within maximum limits. We recommend sticking to carry-on size bags as much as possible (soft duffle bags and backpacks are best). Please ensure accuracy when booking - this way we can get in touch if there are any issues!
