    Highlights - Great Ocean Road, Otways & 12 Apostles Helicopter Tour

    Set out on a 5 hour adventure of a lifetime, discovering the truly magnificent coastline of Victoria's Surf Coast, Great Ocean Road and the 12 Apostles.

    Departing from Essendon Airport we fly past the Melbourne CBD and track southwest towards the Surf Coast. You will follow the Great Ocean Road and fly past iconic Bells Beach and several picturesque towns like Lorne and Wye River.

    After about 60 minutes we land at Apollo Bay. Here you will have the opportunity to explore the beach, go for a coastal walk or have lunch in town. We are even able to show you our secret koala hangout.

    After the stop we continue in the helicopter and track along the coast towards the 12 Apostles. You will get extraordinary views of remote beaches like wreck beach and the Cape Otway Light station. At the 12 Apostles we explore the limestone stacks and caves before heading towards home through rural inland Victoria.

    This tour is an incredible and unique experience that will tick all the boxes.
    Currently only available for 2 passengers, but send us an enquiry if you're looking for a bigger group.
