Get to the 12 Apostles fast – from Melbourne

How to get to the 12 Apostles fast? Don’t drive!

Travelling to the 12 Apostles fast from Melbourne is possible, easy and not as expensive as you’d imagine. Hiring your own private corporate aircraft a group of 3 can fly for $280 each. Bigger groups it gets more cost effective down to as little as $180 per person.

Fly in air-conditioned aircraft and see the Great Ocean Road and 12 Apostles in 90 minutes. Adventure Flight Co operate 12 Apostle scenic flights daily, pre-bookings are a must. The pilots are local to the area and are great at pointing out the interesting local features, stories and history of the area.

  • Witness what koalas can do to forest when left to their own devices
  • See Great Ocean Road just like the postcards look like
  • Fly past Cape Otway lighthouse – one of Australia’s oldest
  • Watch the big Southern Ocean swell roll in and crash against enormous cliffs

Even from the start of the Great Ocean Road, the 12 Apostles are more than a 5 hour return trip by car. Flying not only gives you more time in the day, but allows you to  see far more than being stuck behind a caravan on a road ever will!

Travelling to the 12 Apostles fast actually allows you to see more – and do more during your stay in Melbourne or Victoria. Counter-intuitively speeding the trip up actually allows you to take more in just from the sheer fact you are taken up above the landscape in your very own aircraft. Not so high you won’t see anything much like an airliner, we cruise along the coast about 200 meters above the water. Sometimes almost eye-level to the top of the cliffs of the Shipwreck Coast!

From Melbourne you can have a day on the beach at Barwon Heads or Torquay, jump in the aeroplane and see some of Australia’s most spectacular coastline and be back in Melbourne to watch the sunset over St Kilda! Pickups from Essendon Airport (Melbourne City) available.
