The Southernmost point on our itinerary is the historic coastal village of Kiama. Still an active working fishing harbour but most famous for its blowhole, an ocean powered geyser capable of blowing a column of water over 70ft in the air.
From Kiama you will track northwards following the Wollongong coastline past the iconic surfing location of The Farm Beach at Killelea State Reserve and on to Bass Point marine reserve; a drawcard for scuba divers and free divers from across the country, all keen to swim among the colourful fish, huge rays and grey nurse sharks that feed and breed in the area.
As we continue to track northwards along the coast past Shell Cove and the entrance to Lake Illawarra, a large coastal saltwater lagoon, look out for the humpback whales and bottlenose dolphins which are regular visitors to our shores.
Continuing your flight past local iconic historic locations and golden suntanned beaches we eventually reach the tourist mecca of Wollongong Harbour, popular for its cafés, restaurants and beaches, before heading back to base flying over Lake Illawarra as you make your final approach to land.
