Water escape

Getaway to the coast and explore the breezy shorelines our beautiful country has to offer. From beaches to rivers, we offer day tours that cover either!

All you have to do is select your preference and then get ready to set off on a tour with one of our trained and professional pilots.

For those who love the sunny Central Coast, our day trip to The Reef – Terrigal Beach will be an experience you will want to sign up for.

Boarding the aircraft at our Parramatta heliport, you will get to take in the iconic harbour and stunning Northern Beaches as you are transported to our Erina heliport. Once here, courtesy transport will take you to Terrigal where you will find The Reef Restaurant.

Once you arrive at the waterfront restaurant, you will enjoy a two-course gourmet meal. As you eat, you will be able to take advantage of the view and breathe in the natural scent of the Terrigal shorelines.

When you have finished your lunch, you will be taken back to Erina heliport where we will fly you across the gorgeous lands of Sydney as we travel back to base.

If peaceful river shorelines are more your style, you’ll want to take a day trip out to Peats Bite – Hawkesbury River.

Leaving our Parramatta base, you’ll enjoy an adventurous helicopter ride through Sydney, flying past notable locations across the famous harbour and Northern Beaches. Once you arrived at Peats Bite, you’ll be able to enjoy a long lunch while taking in the exclusive location that can only be accessed via water or air.

Valley adventure

For those who find fortitude in sipping the finest of wines, a day trip to the Hunter Valley will surely be of interest to you.

Cutting the travel time in half, we will fly you up to your chosen Hunter Valley location in style, showing you beautiful vistas around Sydney before you can enjoy the best sights and experiences the Valley has to offer.

Hunter Escape

For a full-day adventure, our Hunter Escape is the ultimate tour this summer. Flying over the iconic Sydney Harbour, shortly followed by the luscious sands of the Northern Beaches and Hawkesbury River, you will first land at McWilliam’s Mount Pleasant Winery where you will take in an hour of tasting.

The next stop will be Esca Bimbadgen, where you will enjoy a three-course meal with quality wine or beer whilst overlooking the Brokenback Ranges.

If you are looking for a shorter trip that still allows you to take in all the amazing things the Hunter Valley has to offer, then our Upper Hunter Getaway to Hollydene Estate will be your ultimate choice. From our main heliport, you will fly across Sydney Harbour before heading northwest over the tranquil Hawkesbury River and shortly landing at Hollydene Estate.

Here, you will sit down for wine tasting, lunch and possibly even a free private tour of Coolmore horse stud before you are swiftly taken back to the base back in Sydney.

On both day trips, the adventure will continue throughout your journey home. Flying over the vast land of some of Sydney’s most tranquil national parks, you will be able to view a generous landscape many do not have the pleasure of seeing, making these some of the top scenic flights available in Sydney.

Once you have flown across the gorgeous skylines of Sydney, you will arrive back at our main heliport where your tour will conclude.

Inland haven

Want to appreciate the natural inland beauty that Sydney has to offer? A great choice for your next day out, we offer exceptional tours that will leave you in awe.

From isolated hide-outs along the Hawkesbury River to flying over the deep valleys of the Blue Mountains, an inland tour might just be the next tour you desire!

A stellar day trip that will have you exploring the iconic green lands of the Blue Mountains, our Blue Mountains and Beyond tour is the ultimate way to spend your next day out.

From Sydney, you will take in the gorgeous world heritage location, the Three Sisters, and its neighbouring gorges before you descend over Megalong Valley into the cute town of Little Hartley.

Once you arrive, you will get to experience gourmet Australian cuisine, courtesy of the Ambermere Rose Inn, before you fly across rugged valleys to get to our base back home.

Blue Mountains and Beyond

Looking for a picturesque historical location where you will also be treated to a cold beverage? Then our Afternoon Ale tour is your best pick!

Taking off from our main heliport, you will be transfixed as you fly over the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House where you will be further gifted a bird’s-eye view of the Northern Beaches.

Once you follow the Hawkesbury River up North, the helicopter will transport you back in time, landing in the depths of the Macdonald Valley at the Settlers Arms Inn.

Built in 1836, this historic pub is a true Australian gem where you can relax and take in your historical surroundings while enjoying a nice beer and nibbles.
