Gippsland Lakes and Paynesville have a unique character, defined by the presence of the Mitchell River Silt Jetties just off the mainland. These naturally formed silt banks run for over 8 kilometres, making them the second largest silt jetties in the entire world, and the longest in the southern hemisphere.
Enjoy the pure adrenaline rush and epic views of flying in a helicopter with a scenic flight over Victoria’s Lakes Entrance coastal area. This is one of the most beautiful destinations in Gippsland and the view from this scenic helicopter ride is unbeatable.
At Lakes Entrance Airfield, East Gippsland, you’ll have a safety briefing before boarding the helicopter and preparing for take off. Feel the exhilaration of flying through the air for a 20 minute flight as the experienced pilot shares informative commentary.
You’ll head west towards the Mitchell River silt jetties, which are naturally formed silt banks that stretch for over eight kilometres and the second-largest in the world. Fly over the beloved holiday destinations of Paynesville and Metung, then enjoy views of the three islands before heading back to the airfield.
Between the coastal views and the excitement of the helicopter flight, this is an experience you’ll never forget.
