Discover the waterfalls of the South Coast of NSW on this spectacular scenic helicopter ride
Discover the waterfalls of the South Coast of NSW on this spectacular scenic helicopter ride. Just minutes after take-off you will fly over the rocky cliff edges of the Great Dividing Range towards Jamberoo mountain and the ancient aboriginal bushlands of the Barren Grounds Nature Reserve. You will then fly towards your first waterfalls of the day the beautiful Gerringong Falls a 180m vertical drop into the Gerringong Creek. Your flight continues as you follow the upper Kangaroo Valley River to the Carrington Falls, a spectacular waterfall at 71meters high and the Hampden iron and wooden suspension bridge spanning the gorge of the Kangaroo Valley River.
Then fly over the dramatic Fitzroy and Belmore Falls. From Belmore Falls we meander back towards base taking a diversion over Macquarie Pass National Park. As you fly overhead the national park, just about visible beneath the rainforest are the tumbling waterfalls of the Macquarie Rivulet and the whole of the Illawarra laid out before you.
I really enjoyed the helicopter ride. It was a beautiful day to enjoy the scenery of the south coast.
