Imagine flying over Melbourne's skyline. The city is at your feet, the giant buildings look like children's LEGO below and you can see the gridlock of the traffic with cars inching their way to Flemington Race Course.

You of course are above it all because you have chosen to arrive by helicopter.



As you arrive at Flemington, you see the emerald green turf drawing you tantalisingly closer.

When you land at the helipad you really make an entrance -- holding onto your fashionable hat of course as you duck the whirling blades just like in the movies.



Then a VIP Lexus courtesy vehicles transfers you from the helipad to the main entrance.

Sometimes a special event like the Cup means adding something that will make it even more memorable.

And your first ever helicopter flight is likely to get the adrenalin pumping.



You might want to get the helicopter one way and ride on public transport the other just to really even things out.

There are also a few cheaper times to arrive by helicopter. Here are some costings below.
