Sydney Beaches Tour by Helicopter

Sydney Beaches Tour by Helicopter

Your scenic helicopter experience starts with pickup from your centrally located hotel and transfer to Sydney Airport followed by a greeting and check-in from the friendly operations staff, and a safety briefing in the comfort of a modern and spacious guest lounge.

When you’re ready, head over to the helicopter and take a few photos before boarding the state-of-the-art chopper. Slip the provided radio headset over your ears for two-way communications with your pilot while in the air. Cameras and video recorders can be taken with you on the helicopter for more fantastic memories of your flight.

Large viewing windows allow for excellent sight lines as your pilot takes off and soars towards the coast. Within minutes of departure your experienced and skilled pilot will have you above the glistening waters of Maroubra Beach as you track north along the coast at 500-feet. Admire the turquoise waters of the Pacific Ocean and the white-sand beaches that scallop the coastline around Sydney. Your pilot points out famous beaches and surfing spots with views that extend from the Northern Beaches to Botany Bay. Manly, Dee Why, Bondi Beach and Coogee among the most renowned beaches clearly visible, along with many tucked away coves and inlets along the coastline. 

Admire the spectacular houses of Dover Heights and Vaucluse perched on the chiselled sandstone cliffs as you continue northbound to Sydney Heads. From the entrance to Sydney Harbour your flight path will continue north passing the golden sands of Manly and Curl Curl Beaches en route to Dee Why and Long Reef.

Your experienced pilot will guide your helicopter towards the yacht filled waters of Middle Harbour and then onwards into the awe inspiring Sydney Harbour for views of the icons such as the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House, Taronga Zoo, Watsons Bay, Rose Bay, Manly Beach and Sydney’s most exclusive real estate addresses. Looking towards the horizon see the rest of Sydney stretching out towards the Sydney Olympic site and further afield to the foothills of the world renowned Blue Mountains.

As you start your return journey to the heliport you will fly past some of Sydney’s great sporting arenas including the Sydney Football Stadium and the Sydney Cricket Ground, as well as Randwick Racecourse. When you return to terra firma, enjoy complimentary refreshments such as tea or coffee, then transfer to your hotel to end your tour.
