Feeling adventurous? In the mood for a bit of adrenalin pumping fun? Want to see the region of Cairns and beyond from a birds eye view? Updraught provide both locals and visitors of the region an opportunity to explore Cairns and Port Douglas on a whole new level. You’ve seen it from the ground, you’ve seen it under water but have you seen it from the sky?

Providing hang gliders as well as microlights, Updraught will take you on a fantastic journey as you soar over the Great Barrier Reef, lush tropical palms, stunning rainforest, backdrops of the Great Dividing Range, crystal clear streams and unspoilt golden beaches. Along the way it is quite common to come across a variety of local wildlife of the tropics including crocodiles, dugongs, sea turtles, sharks, pods of dolphins and giant rays.

Run by industry heavyweight Kevin Gilligan, Updraught runs for most of the year (excluding the wet season for safety reasons) and is highly recommended if you want to experience the Far North region from a different perspective.
