More than 32,000 skiers, boarders and sightseeing guests have enjoyed a once in a lifetime experience flying between the resorts of Hotham and Falls Creek, or just taking in the breathtaking sights of the high plains in their winter glory.
The Heli Link takes approximately six minutes in the five seat helicopter which cruises at over 200 km/h as it whisks its passengers between purpose-built helipads at Falls Creek and Hotham. Your Falls Creek ski lift ticket is valid at Hotham (and vice versa for Hotham-based skiers and boarders).
Along the flight path you'll see some awesome snow-capped mountains such as Mt McKay (accessed by cat skiers or boarders with a guide), razor-sharp Mt Feathertop, cross-country skiers, historic cattlemen's huts and if you are really lucky wild brumbies.
Helicopter services will operate throughout Winter on days that weather conditions permit. Call Forest Air Helicopters direct on 1300 731 450 to check whether the helicopter is operating, and book the thrill of a lifetime.
Heli Link passengers should reserve their seating the day before, as seats are limited on the “blue bird” days.
Scenic flights, airport transfers to Hotham, Albury and even Melbourne are available as well as Scenic flights, and “Fast Laps” around Falls Creek and Hotham resorts.
To book any of the helicopter flights call Forest Air Helicopters direct on 1300 731 450.
