‘Heli-in-one’ tour takes off

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - BUSINESS -

SKYSA­FARI is launch­ing a unique ex­pe­ri­ence for golf ad­dicts seek­ing the ul­ti­mate thrill.

The ’”heli in one” golf­ing ex­pe­ri­ence trans­ports en­thu­si­as­tic golfers from Port Dou­glas over the ma­jes­tic rain­forests, wa­ter­falls and mag­nif­i­cent coastal scenery while tak­ing in 27 holes on three renowned golf cour­ses - Pa­cific Palms at Clifton Beach, Sea Tem­ple Port Dou­glas and Cook­town.

The 10-hour tour pack­age is the first of its kind in the area, aim­ing to re­cap­ture and mo­ti­vate the af­flu­ent travel mar­ket to Port Dou­glas and the Dain­tree, and will in­clude gourmet food from Port Dou­glas Cater­ing and the use of top end Titleist golf clubs.

The flight will be aboard a brand new state-of-the-art five-seater Ro­bi­son 66 he­li­copter, one of only three in ex­is­tence in Australia.

“We have been granted per­mis­sion to land right on the golf cour­ses, which means play­ers will be greeted by their golf buggy im­me­di­ately upon de­scend­ing the air­craft,” Skysa­fari owner-op­er­a­tor King said.

“Our flights al­low Port Dou­glas to be­come an ad­ven­ture plat­form - this area is na­ture’s fron­tier, there is so much spec­tac­u­lar scenery and ac­tiv­i­ties to en­joy in the area.”

The new tour will be launched on March 23.
