Return Details

Returns to original departure point
After pickup from your Sydney hotel, transfer to the helipad in a private vehicle to start your day. Your helicopter flight experience begins with a greeting and check-in from the friendly operations staff, followed by a thorough safety briefing in the comfort of your modern and spacious guest lounge.

After the safety briefing, it's time for photo ops in front of the helicopter before boarding. Cameras and video recorders can be taken with you on the helicopter for more fantastic memories of your flight.

Within minutes of boarding your helicopter, you will be flying over some of Sydney’s iconic landmarks. Enjoy an aerial perspective on Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House before heading north following the coast past Manly to Palm Beach then turning inland over the Hawkesbury River and the Brisbane Waters. Your flight path will take you over some of Sydney’s nearest rugged bushland before opening up on the expanse of the Hunter Valley region to arrive in style at your destination.

Sip a variety of the Hunter Valleys finest produce during a wine session tasting that introduces iconic varieties of the region such as semillon and shiraz, along with other award winning wines. Then head to a celebrated winery restaurant for a gourmet three-course lunch. Soak in views of the vineyards and hills during your meal, which features seasonal specialties and fresh produce from the valley’s fertile farmland, accompanied by a complimentary bottle of wine.

After your deluxe winery lunch, return to the helicopter for your flight back to Sydney. Expect to spend about one hour in the air during your scenic helicopter flight. Radio headsets allow for two-way communications with your pilot during your flight, so that you can hear live commentary about the landmarks between Sydney and the Hunter Valley while you are in the air.

This was the splurge of our trip to Sydney. Our ship did not get in early enough to do the bus trip to Hunter Valley, so we went for it. Grant, our pilot, was very friendly and helpful as he pointed out the sights and landmarks. We were flown to a winery where we were treated to a three course lunch and a bottle of wine. Delicious! We then went to the cellar for a tasting. Just the husband and me in the helicopter with the pilot it felt like a date on the Bachelor show. Our trip was on one of Sydneys hottest days and because of that and other circumstances we were late getting off the ground. Grant gave us extra time at the winery to compensate. A wonderful time!

I surprised my husband on our honeymoon with this Helicopter tour and luncheon, and it was absolutely incredible! Our pilot was extremely friendly and personable, the flight was exciting and beautiful, and the food at Tallavera Groves was one of the best meals either of us have ever had. The table we had overlooking the vineyard was picture-perfect as we had lunch, and we really enjoyed the wine tastings and ended up getting a bottle of Tawny. It's expensive, but this activity is well worth it!

This was a fantastic experience. The pilot was great, the sites spectacular, and the meal and wine tasting with the view over the valley was something that will stay with me forever. At first glance you may think it's a lot of money but do it you'll love it. John, Carole and Michelle
