Victoria is known for its natural beauty and breathtaking landscapes. What better way to take in the sights than with a private helicopter charter? Helicopter tours are a popular way to see the state, with a few operators offering helicopter rides around Melbourne and bespoke winery tours.
Here are some of the best places to visit by helicopter in Victoria:
1. Yarra Valley: Victoria is famous for its wine, and there's no better way to explore the vineyards than by helicopter. Take in the stunning scenery of the Yarra Valley as you fly to a winery of your choice. Take your time to explore, enjoy a wine tasting and degustation lunch. In the Yarra Valley, helicopters can land at many of the wineries including Balgownie Estate
, St Hubert, Meletos & Stones of the Yarra Valley and Levantine Hill, just to name a few.
2. The Great Ocean Road: One of Victoria's most spectacular sights, the Great Ocean Road is a stretch of coastline that is particularly impressive from the air. Follow the beaches, see the Otways from air and fly over the Twelve Apostles, Loch Ard Gorge, and other iconic landmarks for an unforgettable experience. It’s also a great time-saver as a trip by road to the twelve apostles is about 3.5 hours each way.
