Detailed Tour Description.
If you've ever wondered what its like to take a quick peek at the beautiful Wollongong Area from above then this is the tour for you.Only minutes after the helicopter skids have left the ground you will have wide panoramic views of the entire area.From Stanwell Park in the north, the central city cluster of Wollongong and then Kiama and even Mount Coolangatta further to the south.
As the helicopter continues to climb up and away from base, the most predominant feature of the area is the large saltwater lagoon the locals know as Lake Illawarra.Its shorelines are now met on all sides by suburbia but its easy to imagine how the lakeside looked when Bass and Flinders arrived at the lake entrance way back in 1796, when the only inhabitants were the local Wodi Wodi aboriginal tribe.The lake back then was of great spiritual significance.
You eyes can't help but seek out the other most predominant feature of the Illawarra and that is the escarpment of the Great Dividing Range.Mount Kembla and Mount Keira have overlooked the narrow coastal plain for millennia past.Every now and then they change their appearance slightly as can be evidenced by the rockfalls scarring their faces.If you are local to the area you may also have witnessed the spectacular sight of the entire mountain range ablaze during summers long gone as the result of bushfires in the area.
The Wollongong area is lucky enough to have some of the most beautiful, charismatic beaches.From the seat in your helicopter you can look north and south along the coast to see miles and miles of golden suntanned, sandy beaches.The crystal clear waters of the Pacific Ocean curl up as they arrive at some of the more well known surfing beaches such as The Farm at Killelea; or just lap at some of the more protected beaches, enticing those who prefer to relax and cool off in calmer waters at the end of a hard day at work.
As you fly past the coast, you'll be able to look down at the rocky headlands and premonotories that are home to endless varieties of colourful fish and which make great locations for snorkelling, scuba diving or fun locations for the kiddies searching the rock pools.
Away from the shoreline, closer to the mountains, are some of the most beautiful, lush, green rolling foothills that can be seen anywhere in Australia.Reminiscent of the English countryside, the meandering lanes lead the eye along on a journey from Marshall Mount and Calderwood through to the evergreen Jamberoo Valley.You may even be be able to see over the tops of the ranges for glimpses of the Avon, Cordeaux and Cataract dams which are all part of the Wollongong escarpment catchment area.
As you return to the airport, you get to look straight down the runway as your helicopter makes its final approach before slowing, almost to a halt, and then veering off towards base.As the skids gently kiss the ground your tour is over.You will have seen the Illawarra from a very unique perspective and no doubt will have seen locations that have left you curious enough to want to pay them a visit on the ground.
