One of the most iconic destinations on Australia’s southern coast is the Twelve Apostles, a series of towering limestone pillars rising from the raging ocean. Every day, hundreds of people gaze at them from the coastal viewing platforms but for a unique perspective of these geological formations, head to the skies. Scenic flights, ranging from 15 minutes to an hour, glide past the Apostles as well as other amazing local formations, including Loch Ard Gorge and London Bridge. Longer flights also take in the Bay of Islands and Cape Otway. There’s much to see – but the pilots provide a running commentary, so you won’t miss a thing.
The Twelve Apostles are six kilometres west of Princetown, a tiny coastal hamlet on the Great Ocean Road. If you need to stop for a break, the general store here does double duty as the local café.
