Scenic Bi-plane Joy Flight 45 Minute - Wollongong, NSW
One of our personal favourite flight routes takes in the famous Sea Cliff Bridge and the Northern approaches to the rugged Illawarra coastline. An engineering marvel that spans 665 meters, the bridge was opened in December 2005 linking the coastal villages of Stanwell Park and Coalcliff.
This area was also the home of Australia’s very own ‘father of flight’, Lawrence Hargrave, and forms the southern boundary of the Royal National Park – one of the world’s oldest national parks, second only to Yellowstone in the US.
Experience the awesome sights of the stunning beaches of the Illawarra coastline. One of the best ways to see the Illawarra is from the open cockpit of a bi-plane. Upon returning to base you’ll have a smile on your face as wide as the Pacific Ocean view and with no doubt that it’s the coast with the most! A fantastic flight not to be missed.
