Full description
This tour takes you on a spectacular helicopter ride from Sydney to Hunter Valley, where you will enjoy a wine tasting and a delicious gourmet lunch. Your helicopter flight experience begins with a warm greeting and check-in by the friendly operations staff. This is followed by a comprehensive safety briefing in the spacious and comfortable lounge area prior to boarding your flight. Upon take-off enjoy full panoramic views of the Sydney skyline, the Pacific Ocean, and the historic Port Botany. Within 5 minutes your professional pilot will have you over the harbor flying past icons such as the Sydney Harbor Bridge and Sydney Opera House before heading north over Sydney’s glistening northern beaches, right up to Palm Beach. Throughout the flight you can talk to each other via voice activated headsets and your professional pilot will provide you with an expert commentary on all the sights. As Pittwater emerges below, the flight heads inland to the Hawkesbury River and Brisbane Waters regions before passing over the Central Coast to eventually land amongst the famed vineyards of the Hunter Valley. Upon arrival, enjoy a personal wine-tasting experience. Then treat yourself to a delectable 3-course lunch, set in one of Australia's premium wine regions.

    Not for wine lovers: helicopter flight with lunch

    The helicopter ride and lunch were great and an extraordinary experience. That was worth it. The wine experience was not so good. We only saw the beginning of the Hunter Valley and therefore only one vineyard. The "wine tasting" would have been canceled if we had not insisted. The procedure at the heliport took an extremely long time, leaving only ten minutes to try a few mediocre wines. Too bad.
