Overview ‚ÄĒ Experience a spectacular Melbourne sunrise on a special Helicopter Flight with no¬†doors!

Inspired by one of Melbourne's best content creators @whereiskapa, this is your once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the Melbourne City skyline and coastal beaches during a special helicopter flight at sunrise and with no doors! 

Expect spectacular views and amazing scenery as the sun rises over Melbourne on your 30 minute doors-off helicopter ride around Melbourne CBD and down the coast flying over St Kilda Pier, Luna Park and the iconic Brighton Beach Bathing Boxes.

There is no other helicopter flight like this in Melbourne where you can experience an open cockpit while¬†flying low and slow ‚Äúmilitary-style‚ÄĚ over Melbourne‚Äôs city, coast and beaches¬†with¬†unobstructed views from every¬†seat.

Aerial photography at sunrise is amazing from a helicopter and, on certain days, you might be lucky enough to see hot air balloons as they float over the city. Melbourne is the ONLY major city in the world that allows hot air balloons to fly overhead and you’ll have the same amazing views without having to wake up at 3:00am for a hot air balloon flight!

This special sunrise helicopter experience showcases Melbourne in a way that very few people ever get to experience, making it perfect as a birthday or anniversary gift, or the foundation for a stunning aerial photography shoot to capture Melbourne in beautiful morning light.

Please note that sunrise flights are limited and only a handful of seats are available every month on a first-come, first-served basis.

Flight Path¬†‚ÄĒ Sunrise Helicopter Ride¬†over¬†Melbourne

Your sunrise helicopter scenic flight over Melbourne will take off from the Helipad at Essendon Airport and fly over and around:

  • Docklands
  • Melbourne CBD
  • St Kilda¬†Pier
  • Luna Park
  • Brighton Beach Bathing Boxes
  • Sandringham Marina
  • Albert Park Lake
  • Rod Laver Arena
  • Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG)

Your sunrise flight experience includes:

  • An exciting 30 minute scenic flight over Melbourne's best landmarks and tourist attractions at sunrise
  • A "doors-off" experience for raw and uninterrupted views¬†from your seat
  • Some of the best aerial photography opportunities that¬†Melbourne has to offer
  • An experienced and courteous pilot who loves making people smile
  • Premium noise-cancelling headsets from Bose to limit external noise and speak clearly amongst yourselves

What to expect ‚ÄĒ¬†Melbourne at Sunrise by Helicopter with Rotor One:

Arrive at our hangar and relax with a drink in our lounge while your pilot walks through your flight path, provide a short safety briefing and answers any questions.

Next, walk out to the tarmac for some gorgeous photos of your helicopter with the sun rising over Melbourne CBD in the background.

As you jump onboard the helicopter for your sunrise flight, your helicopter will pick up into a hover before taking off to 1,500 feet (450 metres above  the ground) and settling into a cruise speed of 185 km/h for your flight around Melbourne and the beaches.

Enjoy sun-soaked views of Docklands and the Melbourne CBD as you turn left and head towards St Kilda Pier where you helicopter will descend to fly you low and slow down the coast.

Witness the sun casting long shadows of the Brighton Beach Boxes out to Port Phillip Bay and enjoy an exciting 180 degree turn over Sandringham Marina as you fly back up the coast for up-close views of Albert Park, Royal Botanic Gardens, Rod Laver Arena and the MCG from the air.

When your helicopter returns to Essendon Airport and touches down, we guarantee you'll be left with a smile on your face... This is what makes our day and is the reason we love what we do at Rotor One.

Beers, Burgers & Gin - Great Trip!

What a great day from start to finish and a way to kick off 2022!
With so many Heli winery trips out there i was waiting to find one that was a little more relaxed and different so was thrilled to see the Brewery, Burgers & Gin tour! From the moment i contacted Rotor One to ask some questions and book, their customer service and communication was great, friendly and always helpful which made the decision to spend this money a lot easier knowing we would be in great hands. Each venue looked after us well and our pilot made sure personally that our day was running smoothly. Definitely felt like VIP's for the day with Rotor One as well as all the other venues we visits.
Our pilot Ed was awesome! Went above and beyond all day to ensure we had a great trip. He was very friendly and easy to get along with. He is a great pilot, the flight was so smooth and flawless. Ed was attentive and knowledgeable and able to point out a lot of sights along our flight. He is a pure natural and helps make the experience what it is.
You will not be disappointed, It was a day to remember!

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.

This flight experience was a gift of our wedding anniversary. It was a great decision and wow, what an amazing experience.
The pilot was very kind and gave us plenty of time for photos, we are very happy with our photos, thanks to the pilot (Ed) for the couple photos and for a smooth and stress free flight experience. We would do it again in the future.
Flight experience itself looks short when you are up in the sky so defiantly would recommend at least half an hour flight.

Sunrise flight with doors off

For a first time flier, Ed was super friendly and really put me at ease. He was thorough in his explanations and made sure to let me know in advance if there were any sharp turns. We had such a magical time and the views were amazing! It was so much fun and we got to see so many iconic Melbourne landmarks. Would definitely recommend and could see myself doing this again! Thanks Ed!
