On a recent trip to Melbourne we took in a day of wineries at the Yarra Valley via a helicopter through Point Helicopters.
We took off from Essendon Air fields, which is 20-25mins from Melbourne CBD
Introducing our little Red Helicopter that safely guided us around Melbourne and the Yarra Valley (of course with the guidance from Dean)
The complicated gages and the Ipad that provides some of the best maps for the team to follow.
The first glimpse of Melbourne city from the air. Can you spot the Eureka Tower?
Heading away from Melbourne city towards the Yarra Valley
Melbourne just goes on forever, it reminds me of our trip to Bangkok, the city goes on for as far as the eye can see.
And on and on Melbourne goes! In the background is the Yarra Ranges National Park
Heading towards the Yarra Valley, rolling hills of greenery.
Another view of Yarra Ranges National Park
A birds eye view of Heritage Golf and Country club, looks like more bunkers than green.
Arriving at Domaine Chandon winery, its very rare for us to be able to see a winery from this view, all the wines in perfect lines.
We landed in the second clearing right next to the vines
