Discover the natural wonders of Newcastle and Lake Macquarie during this scenic helicopter flight. Pass over eight of Newcastle's stunning beaches before soaring above the coastline to the beautiful Lake Macquarie. Continue to fly over pristine landscapes before you reach the Swansea Channel.
From the moment you take off up until the moment you land, you will enjoy uninterrupted views of the gorgeous Newcastle coastline. Revel in the natural beauty of the contrasting shoreline below as you pass over Newcastle's eight pristine beaches, Redhead Bluff and Glenrock State before making your way down the rugged coastline to Australia’s largest saltwater lagoon, Lake Macquarie. From here, you'll have a birds eye view of the Belmont township, Blacksmiths Beach and the ever-changing colours from the sands of the Swansea Channel. Then, continue across the lake to the locally renowned Pulbah Island and over to Warners Bay where you'll admire the protected habitats and wildlife of Blackbutt Reserve and the Shortland Wetlands. To finish off, glide through the sky and marvel at the expansive cityscape where you will be able to point out McDonald Jones Stadium and the John Hunter Hospital.
