Around the globe, Byron Bay is revered for its untouched coastline, rich rainforests, and sweeping hinterland. When experienced from a birds-eye-perspective, the landscape’s striking patchwork of natural elements takes on a new significance. See for yourself with Elements AIR, the resort’s new collection of aerial services.
Guests have the choice of three unique packages.
Byron Bay Coastal Scenic Helicopter Flights
The first is the Byron Bay Coastal Scenic Helicopter Flight. This unforgettable aerial experience begins right here, at Elements of Byron.
You and up to two other guests will soar over Byron Bay’s iconic lighthouse, perched above the jagged cliffs and bright blue ocean of Walgun (Cape Byron). You’ll then fly over picture-perfect Wategos beach, where panoramic views offer up unparalleled dolphin and whale sightings. Finally, you’ll trace the wild expanse of Tallows Beach and Broken Head, framed by lush green rainforest.
The experience takes a total of 1 hour, including 45 minutes flight time, and is available for a minimum of two and maximum of three people. The cost is $900, including GST.
Skip the traffic and take flight with the second Elements AIR package. Available from both Gold Coast and Ballina airports, our door-to-door helicopter airport transfers guarantee you arrive at Elements in style.
Whether you’re heading north or south, the flight will give you a taste of Byron’s world-class beaches and hinterland scenery. From the helicopter, you’ll have the best seat in the house to soak up the stunning ocean views.
An optional picturesque detour will see the helicopter circle Cape Byron, the lighthouse, and pristine Cosy Corner beach, which is protected by the Arakwal National Park.
Each helicopter can accommodate two guests with standard luggage. From the Gold Coast Airport, the cost is $1100 each way, including GST. From the Ballina Airport, the cost is $650 each way, including GST. Both flights take approximately 1 hour. The optional scenic detour is $165.
The Ultimate Byron Experience
Explore the Byron Bay region’s diverse natural environment like never before – from the skies – with the third Elements AIR package.
The Ultimate Byron Experience’s first destination is ancient Wollumbin, also known as Mt. Warning. Once a colossal volcano, Wollumbin is now the largest caldera in the southern hemisphere. Protected by a World Heritage-listed national park, the view of the peak and adjoining rainforest from above is once-in-a-lifetime.
From there, the helicopter will fly south to meet the coastline at Brunswick Heads, a quiet beachside paradise. Then, while soaring over Cape Byron and the lighthouse, you’ll have the opportunity to take in the extensive stretch of beach between Tallows and Lennox Head in all its untamed glory.
The helicopter will head inland, over macadamia and pecan plantations, before touching down at the quaint Eltham Valley Pantry. Nestled in the Byron Shire’s rolling hills, you’ll enjoy a locally-sourced lunch before flying back to Elements.
The Ultimate Byron Experience takes 3 hours, including 1 hour flight time. The cost is $1400, including GST, for two or three passengers.
Note: group bookings are available for the Elements AIR aerial services upon request.
