A "must do" when you visit The Rock!

If you visit Ayers Rock you simply must go on a helicopter tour. It may seem a bit pricey at first for those on a budget but it is completely worth it! Ours was part of an... read more

If you visit Ayers Rock you simply must go on a helicopter tour. It may seem a bit pricey at first for those on a budget but it is completely worth it! Ours was part of an accommodation bundle and I'm so glad my wife booked it! We weren't sure if our young sons would be up to flying on... More

My wife and I have seen the rock a couple of times before but never from the air. This time around we thought we would take a 15 minute flight to get ‘that aerial view’. We booked our flight at the Tourist – Visitors Centre at The Town Centre. We book for the next day and there wasn’t a problem... More

Although I felt uneasy about my first experience in a helicopter our pilot Pat made me felt at ease and safe. It was a truly amazing experience. Pat explained the terrain we flew over in detail and answered all our questions we had about the area. We were picked up on time and everything went smoothly. Pat explained all the... More

We were fortunate enough to have a 15 minutes flight today and were just blown away. The views are just spectacular. The whole event was organized very well with pick up, proper instructions etc . We always felt in safe hands, even knowing our pilot was actually a musician 😉

I'm really disappointed about Ayers Rock Helicopters. We booked a sun rise flight for 285 AUD. At the pick-up (5:15) they explained that they will not fly as some other guests booked on the same flight have had a wrong understanding on the time. They aksed me to reschedule an hour later, which definitive miss the sunrise and so the... More

I understand the disappointment that you did not get to go on the sunrise flight the other morning, however at the time of booking the flight, being that you were a single passenger, it was explained that it was a minimum of 2 people for a flight, so we would have to join you with another group. The risk with... More

What a great flight we had, Ben our pilot was super. He gave us information on all of things we were seeing. He even showed us all of Ayers Rock Resort. We had a 30 minute flight, a 15 minute would not give you the views that the loner flight gives. As for Ben as your pilot, what a great... More

We booked a private 60 minute charter with Ayers Rock Helicopters and the whole experience from booking to flight was excellent. We visited Uluru in September 2016 and due to extreme rainfall are privileged to be part of the '2% club' who have witnessed waterfalls cascading down the rock. Absolutely awesome but it sure did play havoc with our booked... More
