After pickup at your hotel, transfer to the Sydney Airport. At the helipad, your private pilot welcomes you and provides a safety briefing before starting your flight. Put on the headsets for two-way communications during your flight, the perfect way to learn while sightseeing around Sydney and Blue Mountains National Park.
Departing Sydney Airport your professional pilot will have you over Sydney Harbour and flying past icons such as the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House before heading west past the year 2000 Sydney Olympic site and then on towards Katoomba, located in the heart of the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains.
On arrival, you will fly over the Blue Mountains most spectacular land mark, The Three Sisters rock formation, before landing at Scenic World. You will have an all access pass to ride on the Scenic Cableway to the valley floor or the Scenic Skyway across the valley or even the Scenic Railway, the steepest inclined railway in the world.
The 1361-feet (415-meter) descent will take you through a cliff side tunnel down into the rainforest where you have the option to embark on any one of several short walks. Along the way, explore elements of the site’s coal mining history including the mine entrance, a replica miners’ hut and scale bronze sculpture of a miner and his pit pony. Learn about local flora, listen for the native lyre bird or taste pure Blue Mountains water straight from Marrangaroo Spring. Enjoy a peaceful moment in the open-air Rainforest Room, or on rest benches located along the route.
Once back at the Scenic World center, you can sit, relax and enjoy lunch while overlooking the magnificent Jamison Valley through panoramic picture windows before your return flight to Sydney.
