What You Can Expect

Blue Mountains Helicopter Day Trip from Sydney Including Scenic World

Blue Mountains Scenic Helicopter Trip from Sydney

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.

This was an amazing afternoon.... From the hotel pickup ON TIME to the airport to the actual flight was INCREDIBLE. Our pilot MITCH was amazing in flight and amazing to look at. Mitch was an excellent pilot and excellent guide - even took a second run through Sydney Harbour. What a great experience!!! and surprise a video thumb drive to take at the end was a great surprise though I would not have slouched as much in the front seat if I knew I was on tape! LOL.....

Truly amazing. I was surprised that it was just my wife and I in our private helicopter. Our guide was great and made sure we not only got gorgeous views of the mountains but also gave us an up close view twice of the harbor bridge and opera house. He also made sure we were oriented at the Scenic Activity areas on the mountains and just took great care of us in every way. It is rather expensive, but worth every cent! Highly recommended.
