After pickup from your Sydney hotel, transfer to the helipad in a private vehicle to start your day. Your helicopter flight experience begins with a greeting and check-in from the friendly operations staff, followed by a thorough safety briefing in the comfort of your modern and spacious guest lounge.
After the safety briefing, it's time for photo ops in front of the helicopter before boarding. Cameras and video recorders can be taken with you on the helicopter for more fantastic memories of your flight.
Within minutes of boarding your helicopter, you will be flying over some of Sydney’s iconic landmarks. Enjoy an aerial perspective on Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House before heading north following the coast past Manly to Palm Beach then turning inland over the Hawkesbury River and the Brisbane Waters. Your flight path will take you over some of Sydney’s nearest rugged bushland before opening up on the expanse of the Hunter Valley region to arrive in style at your destination.
Sip a variety of the Hunter Valleys finest produce during a wine session tasting that introduces iconic varieties of the region such as semillon and shiraz, along with other award winning wines. Then head to a celebrated winery restaurant for a gourmet three-course lunch. Soak in views of the vineyards and hills during your meal, which features seasonal specialties and fresh produce from the valley’s fertile farmland, accompanied by a complimentary bottle of wine.
After your deluxe winery lunch, return to the helicopter for your flight back to Sydney. Expect to spend about one hour in the air during your scenic helicopter flight. Radio headsets allow for two-way communications with your pilot during your flight, so that you can hear live commentary about the landmarks between Sydney and the Hunter Valley while you are in the air.
