Welcome to Rye
Possibly the south of England’s quaintest town, Rye is a little nugget of the past, a medieval settlement that looks like someone hit the pause button on time.

Mornington Peninsula and Port Phillip Coast Helicopter Tour
Choose a departure time to suit you and meet your helicopter pilot at Moorabbin Airport (adjacent to Melbourne’s Port Phillip Bay) at least 15 minutes before your flight. The pilot will give you a short briefing and then you will take to the skies, flying out to the south for the Mornington Peninsula. Get a bird’s eye view of the beautifully designed houses hugging the cliff edges as you fly over affluent waterside neighborhoods. Observe the cliffs spilling down onto white beaches and yacht clubs dotting the coastline. Dromana Beach is clearly visible ahead, bounded by Arthur's Seat – the highest point on the Peninsula. From here, the full extent of the famous Peninsula emerges, before your flight continues over Rye, Sorrento, and towards Point Nepean, where the breaking waves on the southern back beaches meet calmer bay waters. It is here that whales and dolphins can often be spotted frolicking in Bass Straight. Your helicopter tour following the southern coast lines around the Peninsula lasts around 60 to 70 minutes and concludes back at Moorabbin Airport.
