    • Look out for marine life down below

    There’s nothing quite like the pure thrill of flying in a helicopter, and there’s definitely nothing quite like the spectacular views from the top. If you want to experience some excitement and see the incredible beauty of Newcastle’s coastline, this is the perfect opportunity to do both.

    Your helicopter ride takes off over Newcastle city, passing over Honeysuckle Drive and soaring out into Newcastle Harbour. You’ll be able to see the entirety of Newcastle during your 25-30 minute helicopter flight, so buckle up and prepare to be overwhelmed with exciting heights and breathtaking views. You’ll swoop over all of Newcastle’s eight beaches, Redhead Bluff, and Glenrock National Park, continuing down the coastline all the way to Australia’s largest saltwater lagoon, Lake Macquarie.

    There’s lots to explore in this area, and you’ll be able to scope out Belmont township, Blacksmiths Beach, and the postcard-perfect Swansea Channel. Your helicopter will take you across the lake to check out Pulbah Island, Warners Bay and the protected habitats of Blackbutt Reserve and the Shortland Wetlands. Plus, as you fly, your pilot will provide commentary and point out any sights you might be missing. You should also keep your eyes peeled for any of the abundant marine life you might be able to spot in the water below. 

    If you’re keen to add some excitement to your life and explore iconic Australian coastal sights, then this helicopter flight over Newcastle to Lake Macquarie is the perfect indulgence.
