Although this was my husband’s birthday present, given some months ago, we didn’t get around to booking until two weeks before Christmas… and were pleasantly surprised to find that there were specials on offer for Christmas! We saved $50 on a 1-hour flight. As we were in the city, we booked in person; the initial booking was completed efficiently and... More

Experienced flying a Boeing 767, instructions were very informative and there was enough detail to take off and land. A brilliant experience and would do this again.

This is an amazing experience for those interested in flying as you get to "captain" a 737-800. You sit in the simulator cockpit and as you look out the cockpit window it looks like you really are flying. I chose to take off and land at Auckland airport and it really is the Auckland landscape. Then I flew from the... More

It was a birthday gift for our 8 year old son. Having chosen this over a party with his mates, he enjoyed the experience throughly. Tom, who was the instructor was great and managed to squeeze in 3 take offs and landings in 45 minutes.

I took my 16 and 13 year old boys to Flight Experience on a recent visit to Melbourne, and they loved it. There was a pilot assisting them with the controls, and they could pick airports of their choice to take off and land. Very realistic and a great experience. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Definitely recommended.

My kids gave me a voucher for Flight Experience for Fathers Day. I was unsure how I would go and if I would enjoy it but once we got started it became a very enjoyable experience. After some tuition in the workings of the Boeing 737 the simulator was set up for Melbourne airport and so with the help of... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
