On your trip down under, why not go high above?

Beyond getting a window seat on your flight to Melbourne, there are several ways to see our stunning Australian landscape from the air.

Here are our favourite views of Victoria from cloud level.

The 12 Apostles

Seeing the 12 Apostles from the ground is an incredible experience in itself but a helicopter ride over the natural wonders takes it to a different level literally and figuratively.

Waubra Wind Farms or Giant USB Cables?

This satellite image of wind farms in Waubra caught the world’s attention when they were discovered on Google Maps.

Warrnambool

The City of Warrnambool marks the western end of The Great Ocean Road. Road-trippers aren’t the only ones who visit this coastal destination. Between May-October, Southern Right Whales migrate to the shores here and can be spotted during an aerial tour.

The Yarra Valley

The only thing better than sipping wine from a Yarra Valley vineyard, is sipping wine from a Yarra Valley vineyard while in a hot air balloon.

The Eureka Skydeck

Scared of flying?  The Eureka Skydeck 88 offers aerial views of the city from the 88th floor, the highest public vantage point in the Southern Hemisphere.

Tower Hill Wildlife Reserve

Tower Hill is an inactive volcano on the outskirts of Warrnambool.  Inside the crater you can find an assortment of authentic Australian wildlife including koalas, echidnas, emus and kangaroos.

Melbourne Sporting Precinct

There’s only one city in the world that has five international standard sporting facilities. Of course, it’s Melbourne. You can see all the venues in one balloon ride.

Melbourne From Space

Space tourism is quite available to the general public just yet, but when it is, perhaps we’ll see more photos like this one of Melbourne taken by astronauts onboard the International Space Station.

Gippsland Lakes

It’s not until you get up to into the clouds that you’ll understand why the Gippsland Lakes region is home to Australia’s largest (and most beautiful) inland waterways. Sailing anyone

Royal Exhibition Building

Australia’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site, The Royal Exhibition Building is even more stunning in fall colours.

Victoria Countryside

When flying commercial through Victoria, don’t overlook the importance of selecting a window seat. You never know what surprises the landscape below you may have.

The Grampians

You don’t have to get in a helicopter, plane or balloon to see a stunning vista.  Hiking trails through Grampians National Park often end with incredible overlooks.
