Relive the romance of a bygone era on an adventure flight with Paradise Seaplanes. Take off from the water's edge at Gatakers Bay, and taste the thrill of accelerating across the jade coloured waters of Hervey Bay in a genuine warbird.

As you reach flying speed and begin to climb, the reason for this aircraft's unusual design becomes obvious as the view below begins to unfold. The massive windows offer an unobstructed panorama of the world below. As you drift slowly along, you can see every detail of the land and sea, just as the designers intended. As your adventure nears its conclusion and the pilot begins his descent, the amazing sensation of landing with an airport nowhere in sight is the perfect end to this unforgettable experience. Truly a must do on the Fraser Coast.
