On arrival at Sydney, the helicopter landed near the helipad and ground- taxied to the concrete apron in the general aviation parking area. The pilot intended to park in a confined space, adjacent to buildings and hangars on the north-eastern extremity of the apron. A number of aircraft were parked in close proximity to the west and south of the intended parking position. A grassed area to the east was free of obstacles. Ground marshalling assistance was not available. The surface wind was from the south-east at 10-15 kts.
