Your Flight to Adventure Land
Upon take off at our Sydney Heliport, you’ll enjoy full panoramic views of the Sydney skyline, Pacific Ocean and the famous Blue Mountains to the west. Within five minutes your professional pilot will then have you over the beautiful Sydney Harbour flying past icons such as the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House. You will then continue up the magnificent coastline and national parkland, as you venture north-bound, viewing Sydney’s stunning Northern beaches and Ku Ring Gai National Park before coming at the picturesque Glenworth Valley.
This is the best way to see Glenworth Valley – from the air.

Once you disembark the helicopter, you will notice a distinct change of pace from the bustling city of Sydney, as the calming energy of the valley canvas laid out before you sets the scene for more wholesome fun activities.
