Walkabout Wildlife Tour by Helicopter from Sydney

Overview - Helicopter Tour to Walkabout Wildlife Park

You're invited to Australia's most exciting and interactive wildlife experience at Walkabout Wildlife Park near Sydney, which is home to some of Australia’s most iconic wildlife.

Your adventure begins with spectacular aerial views of Sydney Harbour including the Opera House, Harbour Bridge and the Northern beaches, on your 30-minute coastal flight to Walkabout Wildlife Park on Sydney’s Central Coast.

Upon landing at Walkabout Wildlife Park, you’ll be escorted inside where your personal Guide (and Park Ranger) will be waiting to take you on a private guided tour with amazing Australian wildlife and explain the park's rich 4,000 year history as an Aboriginal cultural site.

What to expect - Australian Wildlife Experience at Walkabout Wildlife Park

What makes Walkabout Wildlife Park so unique is many of the animals roam freely, so you’re very likely to encounter kangaroos, koalas, emuswombats and dingos during your tour. Your guide will help you safely get up-close with these amazing wildlife on your tour and, if their mood permits, you‘ll have the opportunity to snap a photo together.

You can also learn about ancient Australia during your private tour with some unique experiences available to Rotor One guests including a mini bush walk to an ancient Aboriginal cave, learning about bush tucker and bush medicine, and learning how to throw a boomerang (you'll be able to request these experience with your booking after clicking 'Book Now').

Walkabout Wildlife Park is also special for its role in the conservation of endangered Australian wildlife. The park has a special breed-to-release program, nursing several endangered species to release them back into the wild to help repopulate areas of the Australian bush. All proceeds from ticket sales go directly to supporting this program, so you’ll be playing a direct role in helping regenerate Australia’s endangered wildlife.

Your magical Walkabout Wildlife Park adventure concludes with another stunning scenic flight back to Sydney, this time via Sydney’s Northern Beaches, Manly, Bondi Beach and Coogee, touching down at Sydney Airport.

You have the option to flying straight back to Sydney, or taking a coastal detour for a seafood lunch with cocktails at one of the Central Coast’s best waterfront lunch spots, 8 at Trinity.
