There's nothing quite as exhilarating as flying over the earth close enough to almost touch the tree-tops at speeds to make the adrenaline pump.
In Canberra you can do just that with a scenic flight. The main provider of this is Capital Warbirds which takes you up in a Yak-52 and can include aerobatic stunts like rolls and loops.
Of course, it also has more relaxing non-acrobatic flights.
As an alternative, there are a handful of scenic helicopter flights you can book that'll fly you over Canberra and its surrounds, such as the Snowy Highlands.
