What people are saying about Hunter Region

First class!

I was worried about taking an 8 year old boy and 5 year old girl on this experience but Oliver the pilot was excellent. Gracie the 5 year old sat in the front and bossed Oliver around and Alex, the 8 year old took all of the photos. We had a few spins and turns which gave the experience a roller coaster feel which the kids loved and Gracie talked to Oliver the whole time, which he was very gracious about. We were high enough to see everything and the Hunter Valley looked gorgeous from up there. Given kids traditionally don't listen at all, they both listened to the pilots instruction well and loved the earphones and microphones which allowed them to talk to each other. I would recommend this as a family event to anyone and we will certainly be back as the kids want to go again!

though we had waited for about half an hour as it was a busy day for them but it was worth every penny and the wait..the experience was great..and the pilot was very kind to assist us, especially my husband who has paraperesis..his disability didnt stop us from riding the helicopter and seeing the beautiful hunter valley view from the top..

Fantastic experience, beautiful scenery

We were really pushed for time. We knew we wanted to see hunter valley and the helicopter ride allowed us to see the area in its full beauty. It really was a great experience of which we would recommend to anyone!

I had the most amazing 20 minutes. It was really scenic and the weather was perfect.

Excellent experience and a must try, excellent pilot!
