Makara Wind Farm From Helicopter Cockpit

South Coast Discovery

Explore the rugged Wellington south coast, Karori Rock Lighthouse, and Cook Strait on this scenic helicopter Trip.

Trip Overview

Explore what lies beyond the city with a spectacular helicopter flight over Wellington’s pristine southern coastline. Pass closely by the majestic Makara Wind Farm where you will get a fantastic view of the giant windmills, remarkable examples of modern engineering and sustainable energy.

The next heading is south to the wild, dramatic coastline where numerous seal colonies hug the rugged shores as waves batter into the towering cliffs. See Karori Rock Lighthouse, an enduring testament to the shipping dangers of the Cook Strait, one of the world’s most notorious stretches of water.
