No matter which helicopter flight you choose, you can be sure of some incredible bird’s-eye views. If you’ve never flown in a helicopter before then why not give it a go? Most first-time flyers love the experience and only regret not doing it sooner or choosing an experience that lasts longer.
With awesome sights guaranteed, it’s well worth taking your camera and mobile phone along to capture some unbelievable photos and videos. Prepare to have your breath taken away!
Melbourne has established a reputation as one of the world’s greatest cities, thanks in part to the many fun things to do in the city and surrounding areas, from the Yarra Valley to the Great Ocean Road (including the famous 12 apostles).
A thrilling helicopter ride is a bucket list experience that can be surprisingly affordable. Flying high needn’t involve sky high costs, as you’ll see when you browse the range of helicopter experiences in Melbourne available to book here at Adrenaline.
There are options for a range of budgets and various durations and locations, but don’t just take our word for it, your best bet is to take a look for yourself.
With a range of products to choose from, at different prices, it’s a good idea to think about which helicopter ride appeals to you most? The answer depends on what you value most. Have a think about whether you want to see more of the city or if you’d prefer to explore the coast. It’s also worth considering where you’re willing to travel to. If you want to stay within Melbourne CBD, then choose a helicopter trip in that area. If you’re open to travelling further afield, it opens up other locations, like Phillip Island, Barwon Heads and the Surf Coast.
The Helicopter Scenic Flight, 18-20 Minute City Orbit, which will take you to the best spots around the city, is one of our best sellers. Another popular option is the 20 Minute Melbourne Bayside Helicopter Flight, departing Moorabbin Airport.
This flight takes off from Essendon Airport, giving you plenty of time to enjoy the area’s stunning scenery and famous sights, including the MCG, Eureka Tower, Docklands, Rod Laver Arena and the Royal Exhibition Building.
