Air, Helicopter and Balloon Tours

HeliSpirit offers a variety of unforgettable helicopter adventures across the Kimberley and Top End. Australia’s Kimberley region is like no other place on earth – rugged, romantic, breathtakingly beautiful and hides secrets well until you take to the air.

From short scenic flights to longer itineraries including landings and accommodation, HeliSpririt offers helicopter adventures for everyone.

Flights depart from Kununurra, Lake Argyle, Purnululu (Bungle Bungle), Bungle Bungle Caravan Park, Mitchell Falls, Esperance, El Questro, Karratha and Katherine Gorge.

HeliSpirit’s award-winning Bungle Bungle helicopter flights depart from the airfield in Purnululu National Park or the Bungle Bungle Caravan Park, located 1 kilometre from the Great Northern Highway. They provide the most flight time over the Bungle Bungle.

Some helicopter flights from Kununurra or Lake Argyle include landings to view the sun setting over the vast red cliffs of the Ord River or swimming in secret springs.

At the Mitchell Falls, fly in one way and walk back with the Falls Transfer flight or choose a longer flight out over the Kimberley Coast.

Their newest base in Esperance offers flights over the stunning coastline and the famed pink lake of Middle Island.

HeliSpirit’s Mitchell Falls Helicopter Tours give you a magnificent bird’s eye view of the remote wilderness.

The transfer flight is a short helicopter flight to view the Mitchell Falls from the air and to drop you off at the top of the Mitchell Falls (or to pick you up if you have pre-booked) and take you back to the campground. There is a longer option out to the Kimberley coast and over the lower Mitchell Falls and Crystal Creek. The 18 minute triple waterfall flight includes the lower Mitchell Falls and the JCR falls.

There is so much to see from the air at the Mitchell Plateau. A Mitchell Falls helicopter flight gives you a grand perspective of the area you have walked and driven over. You will see gorges, waterfalls, remote beaches and islands if you choose the 48 minute flight.
