At the Twelve Apostles, there’s an optional helicopter ride. I think I may have just heard the tour guide say helicopter and I was the one screaming, “hells ya!” At first, it was just me but as helicopter time drew near – others on the tour joined my enthusiasm (don’t want to take credit but it was most likely to my never-ending jabbering about how awesome it was going to be).
It may have only been a 8 minute ride – ok, mine might have been a little longer due to something or
other but truth be told, I couldn’t really tell you as I wasn’t paying attention to the dude running beside as he explained the safety procedures and how I was really luckily to have scored a longer ride.
Regardless, I was able to board the chopper without getting cut up into bits and then we were off (I forgot to mention that they were holding the helicopter for me and that’s why I had to run to board it…small and insignificant detail). The view from above was absolutely stunning and to me, hands down, this was the highlight to the Great Ocean Road part of my journey.
