Your helicopter tour flies past Melbourne for beautiful aerial views of the city, along Port Phillip Bay over the Brighton Beach Boxes and across Phillip Island passing the San Remo Bridge and GP Circuit.

As you pass the seaside town of Inverloch, the 50,000 hectares of Wilsons Prom National Park will come into view. Picture sandy white beaches packed with granite hills, mountain peaks and acres of natural landscape filled with native wildlife such as wombats, emus and rosellas.
