Product Description

We’ll head south and follow the initial path of the first ever commercial flight between Australia and New Zealand by arguably one of the world’s most famous aviation pioneers, Sir Charles Kingsford Smith. In January 1933, “Smithy” as he was affectionately known, left Sydney in his Fokker Tri-plane the Southern Cross and headed down to Seven Mile Beach at Gerroa (chosen because it was long and flat with hard-packed sand). Enjoy gob-smacking views of the sub-tropical rainforest around Jamberoo and Saddleback Mountain. Imagine ‘’Smithy” taking off as we fly past Mount Coolangatta and then along the Seven Mile Beach, before heading back along the coast, past the famous Blowhole at Kiama. Also, you can’t go up and not do some aerobatics in this real WW2 aircraft on the way back – of course only if you want to!
