If you can save your pennies to go on one of these flights you won't be disappointed. They have flights of different durations and they say they now do 10 minute ones for tour bus groups to get everyone up and to view and down in a timely manner, but we went the full hog and took the one hours flight. This took us all the way to Cape Otway Lighthouse at one end and the Bay of Islands at the other end. As a photographer we stopped at every lookout but you can only truly appreciate the whole coast and concept from the air. Our pilot was a font of knowledge about both geography/geology, history and the weather. We didn't get the video recording but I saw one my mother had a from a few weeks before and it would make a fantastic memory of your trip. We were not blessed with the bets weather but that didn't dampen the experience whatsoever.

Thank you Anna for your wonderful review. The team at 12 Apostles Helicopters are delighted that you enjoyed our 1 hour Cape Otway Lighthouse to Bay of Islands scenic flight. We completely agree that you simply cannot see every part of the coast from the lookouts along the Great Ocean Road. Thank you for flying with us and we hope to see you back one day.

We booked a one hour flight that took us over the 12 Apostles, out to Cape Otway and back to the Bay of Islands. The flight was fantastic, the pilot very informative and the video recording on the USB stick meant we could concentrate on enjoying the flight rather than taking video footage ourselves. We booked it long before the trip and it delivered 100% on our expectations (actually it delivered well above our expectations). Highly recommended.

Good if you want a bird eye view on all the 12 Apostles from the helicopter. I prefer view from the lookouts.

However, the tickets were really expensive regardless adult or child. No family pass whatsoever. It costed AUD145/pp.

We thought we could get a personal video on USB (pay extra) but it was only available if you are riding in 3 persons besides the pilot. Otherwise, it is not available for the big helicopter which can fit 7 passengers besides the pilot.

It was very noisy so you can only talk through the communication system but then that was meant for the pilot to talk and introduce the 12 Apostles, London Bridge etc.

Check that you divert the mic away from noisy children.

Thank you for your review JY. We appreciate you honest review. Helicopters are an expensive means of transportation due largely to the short operating life of the machine. 12 Apostles Helicopters are proud to have the newest fleet of helicopters whilst maintaining the lowest priced fares of any major helicopter scenic business in Australia. You may find shorter helicopter scenic flights, but not better value then ours, particularly when comparing the prices of flights at other Australia landmarks like the Great Barrier Reef and Uluru.

This is a great experience. Highly recommend to all. 20 minutes and included a usb with our trip. Great to see the apostles from the air and on the ground from the lookout. Very good commentary on the trip.
