K’gari Explorer Tours has unveiled an ALL-NEW package aiming to showcase the breathtaking beauty of the world’s largest sand island to travellers visiting Noosa.

Operated in partnership with Noosa-based helicopter aviation company, Salt Air Aviation, Elevated Escape: Noosa to K’gari proudly connects two South East Queensland tourism icons both known for their cultural and ecological preservation initiatives.

The exciting new product is expected to spark significant interest from local and international markets, boosting visitation to the region from travellers with an interest in unforgettable eco-adventures and educational, nature-based escapes.

Kane Bassett, Group General Manager, showed his support saying, “This ultimate day trip offers unmatched scenery from the air and expert interpretation of the land from our local K’gari Explorer Tours Rangers. Guests of the Noosa Region now have incredible access to the World Heritage-listed freshwater lakes, ancient rainforests growing from sand, and incredibly complex sand dune systems found on K’gari.”

“We’re extremely grateful to have the opportunity to collaborate with the neighbouring region, and we look forward to continuing to share and protect our special corner of Queensland,” Mr Bassett said.

From the moment participants reach the skies of Noosa, they will be mesmerised by breathtaking views of busy marine life, the Great Sandy National Park and Double Island Point, travelling from the UNESCO-designated Noosa Biosphere Reserve, into the World Heritage-listed Great Sandy Biosphere.

Upon landing on the island's sandy shores at either Kingfisher Bay Resort or K’gari Beach Resort, guests will transition seamlessly from the skies to the ground where their private ranger guide awaits to embark on a bespoke 4WD adventure to the island’s biggest drawcards including Lake McKenzie, Eli Creek, the Maheno Shipwreck, and the island’s golden highway, 75 Mile Beach, before heading back to their holiday oasis in Noosa.

Morgan Vidler, Director, Salt Air Aviation said, “It’s a thrill to partner with K’gari Explorer Tours to offer a product that encourages people to step off the beaten path and explore.”

“Taking to the skies to witness the pristine coastline from above with one of our experienced and committed staff members is an experience alone. Add a trip to K’gari and a custom 4WD tour and you’ve got the complete coastal experience,” Vidler added.

The all-new package is available for up to three guests per helicopter and includes return transfers from Noosa, a private 4WD tour, a gourmet picnic lunch, National Park fees, and foreign language translation through the K’gari Explorer Tours app.

K’gari Explorer Tours has earned Advanced Ecotourism Accreditation and Green Travel Leader Status and is the leading 4WD tour operator on K’gari with over 25 years of experience providing single and multi-day tours.

Elevated Escape: Noosa to K’gari has been officially launched into the market and is bookable by calling +617 4194 9222, emailing [email protected], or submitting an online enquiry on the K’gari Explorer Tours website.
