This Dunes and Port Stephens scenic flight takes you over the eastern boundaries of the bay with spectacular views of Anna Bay, Fingal light house, Mount Tomaree National Park, Hawks Nest and more before returning to Newcastle via Williamtown RAAF Base.
Flying in a helicopter is a must-do bucket list experience that never fails to get your heart racing. It’s hard to beat the excitement of the agile swooping and soaring of a helicopter, and nothing compares to the view from the top.
Take off for an epic 40-45 minute scenic helicopter flight and check out the beautiful coastline from Newcastle over Stockton Beach to Port Stephens. You’ll be able to cover a lot of ground during your extensive flight time, so prepare to be amazed by the iconic Australian coastal landscape. Head over the eastern boundaries of the bay and soak up views of Anna Bay, Fingal Lighthouse, Mount Tomaree National Park, Hawks Nest and more.
Your helicopter flight will sweep right over Stockton Beach at about 500 feet, so you can scope out the sand dunes, tin city, and the remains of a giant shipwreck that crashed ashore decades ago. Stockton Beach is home to the largest mobile sand dunes in the southern hemisphere and was the location used for several scenes in the 1979 movie Mad Max, so it’s definitely a sight to see.
After the sand dunes you’ll continue on to Port Stephens, and appreciate a postcard perfect panoramic view of the harbour. Keep an eye out for the abundant marine life that frequents the area, as it’s not uncommon to spot dolphins, whales, and even an occasional Great White Shark in the huge harbour below. Finally, your helicopter will fly back over Newcastle to finish up your epic scenic flight. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to see the Newcastle, Stockton Beach and Port Stephens coastline and enjoy an unforgettable adventure.
