Apart from scenic drives and cruise trips, visitors to Phillip Island can use a helicopter to see the island’s most scenic and panoramic views.
Several helicopters charter both short and long tours from the Phillip Island Helipad which travel around the coast of the island, as well as making return trips to and from Melbourne.

The benefit of a helicopter tour is that they offer visitors an opportunity to see the coastal beauty, gorgeous landscape and wetlands from an unobstructed view. You will never get to see Phillip Island as you would from a helicopter, and given that Phillip Island is such a small island, you can see most of the island in just one short helicopter tour.
Although more expensive than a boat or road cruise your scenic helicopter tour is the best way to view the diversity of the island within a short period of time. Board at the Helipad in the south-east of the island and head up to the coast just east of Cowes and pass over the beautiful beach and jetty. Then continue on past Red Rocks Point and the many reefs below before flying over the spectacular Nobbies and Seal Rocks. Travel over the penguin parade beach and the Grand Prix circuit on your way back to the Helipad.
