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.
