This was one of the best experiences I enjoyed during my recent journey on The Ghan from Darwin the Adelaide. I am so happy I grabbed the chance when the train did its scheduled stop in Alice Springs. The fantastic experience of seeing the MacDonnell Ranges from the air, and the outskirts of Alice Springs outweighs the very acceptable cost... More

Did a 30 minute mystery flight with Alice Springs Helicopters. It was a great way to see the McDonald Ranges and Alice Springs from the air. Next time I will take a jumper. The views were awesome and the trip was thoroughly safe, informative, and enjoyable. For us it was quite an expensive experience, but worth the cost.

We booked for that afternoon and wondered if we had been rash but our experience was fantastic. They collect you from the hotel and take you to... More

Very efficient and friendly team. Never been in a helicopter before, but this was exhilirating and seemed like more than 20 minutes as we saw so much country and wonderful colours in the rocks. Adam who picked us up from the train was very helpful and informative.

Was a fun way to kill an afternoon in Alice Springs. Might save this treat for a trip over the Olga's or Ayers Rock if I had to it over.
