12 Apostles and Shipwreck Coast 'Great Southern Gateway' (Helicopter or Aeroplane)

3 Telford Street, Marengo, Victoria, 3233

Take the 12 Apostles adventure flight tour with Apollo Bay Aviation departing Apollo Bay in either a helicopter or aeroplane. Flight time 45 to 50 minutes.

Once airborne, take in the scenery of the remote rugged Shipwreck Coast with the verdant Otway Ranges as a backdrop. Track on the outbound leg via the historic Cape Otway Light station then along a spectacular coast where no roads or vehicles can go.

Ponder and reflect upon the Australian mainland's first light station. In its heyday, 100 sailing ships per day entered the hazardous strait after a grueling non-stop journey from Liverpool during the Gold Rush period.

Fly onward up this most breathtaking Shipwreck Coast past Dinosaur Cove, Johanna Beach, Moonlight Head, the sculptured coastal 12 Apostles rock stacks, historic Loch Ard Gorge. (If you choose the 1 hour flight extension, then on to port Campbell, the London Bridge arch, Peterborough and Bay of Islands as an optional extra.)

Home via the verdant Otway Rainforest valleys before a landing back in beautiful Apollo Bay.

Flight route sequence may alter between Helicopter and Aeroplane.
