“Helicopter Happiness!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2012

We took a helicopter from Hamilton to Whitehaven, which included a picnic lunch on the beach. It was just fantastic.
We had a great guide who was very safe & knowledgeable. Providing us with information about the surrounding area & what we could see from the chopper.
The lunch was a lovely salad roll with fruit & sweet treats also. It was nicely chilled. It was lovely to relax on the beach!

“Share your Bar-B-Q”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2011

If you choose to eat your food under one of the trees lining the beach, look out for the metre long Lizard that turns up wanting to share your food. He is very tame and where else in the world are you going to be able to do this and enjoy a fantastic?

“Good for a nice afternoon delight.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2011

Beautifully looked after picnic grounds. Plenty of shade, lovely walk, and a rather nice beach. The Airlie council really looks after their patch of paradise.
