What You Can Expect

Sydney Twilight Tour by Helicopter

Sydney Twilight Tour by Helicopter

Start your magical evening in Sydney with a 25-minute sunset helicopter tour that shows off the city and its surroundings in the soft glow of dusk. You can either be picked up from your hotel in Sydney or make your own way to the heliport at Sydney Airport (SYD), where your expert pilot meets you.

After a safety briefing and orientation to the helicopter, take a moment for photo ops with your helicopter before stepping on board. Your pilot provides you with 2-way radio headsets that allow for conversation during your flight. You can learn from your pilot all about the sights you see and ask questions at any time during your journey.

As your helicopter lifts off and whirs over to the Pacific Ocean, soak in majestic views of the coast as the sun goes down. See the waves crash at renowned surfing spots such as Coogee and Bondi Beach, then follow the coastline north to Manly, passing over Watsons Bay and Sydney Harbour National Park.

Return to Sydney by flying over Sydney Heads, the gateway to Sydney Harbour. Marvel at the expanse of the Royal Botanic Gardens as your pilot takes you over landmarks including Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House before night falls. Enjoy watching the city lights as they come on for the night, making the city skyline sparkle. 

Your expert pilot ensures that you have a safe flight. Bonus: you get fantastic photo ops and fascinating details about this vibrant Australian city during your tour.

At the end of your tour, you are transferred back to your Sydney hotel, with plenty of time to explore the city at night on your own.
