“Simply awsome”
Reviewed May 26, 2014

Not much I can add from the previous reviews. My wife purchased the flight for my 50th birthday and it was simply awesome I would recommend it to anyone. Chris the pilot was great when he was going to do a manoeuvre he would explain what he was going to do it’s a funny feeling being upside down in a aeroplane. What a great way to see the Illawarra coast line and have a really fun time doing it. Thanks to Chris and all the staff for making my 50th birthday a special day.

“Best Birthday present EVER!”
Reviewed April 10, 2014

The best way by far to see the Illawarra is upsidedown from a biplane. Chris my pilot was fantastic, and the aerobatics were absolutly brilliant! Would definatley recomend this flight to anyone (we even sent my 70 year old father up on a flight for his birthday last year and he is still telling people about it). This is a "must do" illawarra attraction!

“Thankyou thankyou thankyou”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

What a fun afternoon. Both Lorry, in the office & Chris, my pilot, showed what a professional outfit this company is.
Lily Warra is an open air aerobatics biplane that was everything I was expecting & more.
From the moment we booked to that last exhilarating tumble, above North Wollongong Beach, Southern Biplanes Adventures proved to show Wollongong at its beautiful best.
Again, thank you.

“Great birthday gift”
Reviewed February 10, 2013 via mobile

I purchased a stunt flight for my husband for his birthday. We were made to feel very welcome by Andrew who explained everything to us and then took my husband and ran him threw the safety drill and fitted him into the beautiful red Lily Warra. Chris the pilot then took control and my husband loved every minute. All the acrobatic moves and plus great scenery. I waited in the hangar which opens onto the field, a great spot to sit and enjoy the view.

“The time of my life!”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

The best way to see Wollongong is in this big red girl! Feeling so relaxed and then it was time for some fun! the 'captain' (chris i think?) talked me through everything and made me feel so relaxed. Highly recommend this to anyone. Thrill seekers and not thrill seekers, its for everyone! Exceeded all my expectations!!
