Float tranquilly for about an hour over the scenic parks and gardens of stunning Melbourne. As the sun rises and shines on the city skyline, see famous landmarks like Eureka Tower, Melbourne Cricket Ground, and the Albert Park racetrack seemingly awaken. Drift gently over the city and make sure to capture this stunning backdrop on your camera.
