Incredible views from our sea plane trip over the reef, but unfortunately mother nature prevented us from landing on Whitehaven Beach

Heart Reef is really only a small coral atoll but it is really quaint. However, if the weather is kind then the views of the reef are truly spectacular no matter which direction you look. Although the flight is only short you are blown away...More

Flew over and was pleased to see it but it really is just a small coral atoll. The reef as a whole was an amazing spectacle.

The reef is absolutely beautiful. We didn't get out to see the actual Heart (you have to take a plane or helicopter, I believe), but the reef is a sight to see.

We decided to return by helicopter from the reef and this was quite something for us. We had never flew in one and it was something we were considering very expensive. After being sailing around the Whitsundays we decided the best thing would be to...More
