Spectacular adventure flights along the Great Ocean Road. Tiger Moth World is ideally located in Torquay at the start of the Great Ocean Road. Step back in time and climb aboard an authentic WW2 open cockpit biplane for the flight of a lifetime. For those who dare, turn your life upside down with a choice of aerobatics from mild through to extreme. Whatever flight you choose, you will wing your way along the beaches and rugged cliff tops of the world famous Great Ocean Road! 12 Apostles flights are also available in our modern aircraft - the best and only way to see the whole of the Great Ocean Road and 12 Apostles is from the start at Torquay. And do it in comfort and style in a BRAND NEW 8-seater plane, high wing and large windows for best viewing. Australian Skydive are also based at the same location. They offer tandem skydiving, mini golf/kids playpark and a cafe - fun for the whole family.

Took the Anglesea coastal route and added the extreme aerobatic option, perhaps a little ambitious! The coastal view is magnificent and the relatively slow speed allows you to take in all the details of the coastline and towns. The aerobatics is something else, loops, stall...More

Booked the extreme aerobatics for my partner and I. Most of the flight was scenic and only a small amount of aerobatics at the end. I was less interested in the scenery and would of preferred more aerobatics but we both enjoyed our flights. Sandra...More
