Half-Day Helicopter Tour from Melbourne to the Grampians.

Overview - A spectacular scenic flights to the Grampians with a lunch stopover at Pomonal Estate or Best's Wines

This half day adventure from Melbourne to the Grampians by helicopter showcases one of the most mesmerising natural landscapes in Australia. The Grampians are famous for beautiful hiking trails, spectacular waterfalls, abundant wildlife and Australia's largest outdoor gallery on the Silo Art trail. However, taking 3 hours by car to arrive from Melbourne, the Grampians have been difficult to explore in one day or less…. until now. 

Take this private VIP charter experience from Melbourne to the Grampians in a private helicopter. Reach the Grampians in just over an hour by helicopter to enjoy the magical landscape of the Grampian Mountains from the air. To make the day truly memorable, we'll stopover at one of the Grampians best-rated wineries for lunch and so you can sample the best wines in the region.

Your helicopter ride will fly you from Melbourne over the bustling regional townships of Ballarat, Ararat and Stawell before commencing a scenic aerial flight path over the iconic Grampians National Park. You'll spot popular landmarks across the Grampians National Park including Kyral Castle, Lake Burrumbeet, Halls Gap and the rolling hills of the Grampians wine region.

As you take off, it's not uncommon to see private jets and international aircraft landing and taking off from the Essendon and Melbourne Tullamarine Airports.

Your helicopter joy flight begins as you fly past the Western suburbs of Melbourne over Taylors Lake, Caroline Springs and Melton.

The aerial views continue over Ballarat township including Kyral Castle and Sovereign Hill and before you know it, the Grampians mountain range will be coming in to full view.

As you arrive at the Grampians National park you'll fly right into this amazing natural landscape and over all the must-see landmarks in the Grampians. You'll have stunning views of Halls Gap, Roses Gap, Pinnacle Lookout, Boroka Lookout, Clemantis Falls and Mackenzie Falls.
