A private helicopter tour from Melbourne to Mornington Peninsula that allows you to experience the beautiful beaches, exclusive suburbs and popular landmarks that Mornington Peninsula has to offer in just over an hour by helicopter.

Enjoy spectacular aerial views on this 1 hour and 15 minute scenic helicopter ride as you fly along the entire coastline of Port Phillip Bay on your way to Mornington Peninsula. Your flight path will take you past Melbourne CBD and over St Kilda, the Brighton Beach Boxes, Mount Martha, Arthur's Seat, the exclusive Millionaire's Walk in the Mornington Peninsula suburbs of Sorrento & Portsea, the ocean inlet at Point Nepean and the waterfront city of Geelong.

What to expect — An extended Helicopter Ride with amazing views of the Melbourne coast along Mornington Peninsula

This extended helicopter flight tour incorporates four amazing scenic flights in one so you can experience Melbourne and its beaches, the entire Mornington Peninsula coast, the Bellarine Peninsula and Geelong / Corio Bay all in one flight. 

You'll begin your scenic helicopter tour with aerial views of Melbourne City as you fly over the MCG, Albert Park, Luna Park and St Kilda. Your helicopter will then fly you coastal and directly over the Brighton Beach Boxes, the sunken J7 submarine at Sandringham Marina, the HMAS Cerberus shipwreck at Black Rock and the Marine Sanctuary at Rickett's Point.

The next flight segment delivers aerial views of the seaside suburbs of Mornington Peninsula including Frankston, the cliffs of Mt Eliza, the beach bathing boxes of Mount Martha, the hilltop lookout of Arthur's Seat and the beautiful properties of Millionaire's Walk in the exclusive Mornington Peninsula suburbs of Rye, Sorrento and Portsea (including Lindsay Fox's house complete with a private helipad next to the beach!)

As you reach Point Nepean you'll have spectacular views of Bass Strait (keep an eye out for whales and dolphins around the inlet!) as you fly past the famous Point Lonsdale Lighthouse and you'll likely spot the surfers at Ocean Grove and Barwon Heads as your scenic helicopter tour continues over Geelong, including the Geelong Waterfront and Yacht Club.

The final stage of this epic helicopter flight takes you past the You Yangs Mountain Range and overhead Avalon International Airport with one final, epic photos opportunity of the Melbourne City skyline from Williamstown before landing back at Essendon Airport.

Helicopter Tour

We have just had the bay tour, just over an hour flying past the city and completely around the bay, what an experience. I would highly recommend Melbourne Heli for their professional approach, very clear and friendly instructions at the start and made us both feel very comfortable during the entire flight, amazing experience.

Amazing adventure in the sky!

This was my first time flying in a helicopter and I was very excited and a little nervous. Our pilot was incredible, leading us through the whole experience, explaining how the helicopter worked and the safety which really reassured me. The flight around Melbourne and the bay views were stunning. Such a spectacular surprise date! Thank you for an amazing experience!
