For last Father's Day, I got my hubby a family voucher for a helicopter ride in Phillip Island. Ours was a small helicopter with the capacity of 4 adults including the pilot. The staff were friendly and helpful. There was an issue with my voucher as I didn't activate it correctly but the staff was kind enough to let us proceed with our flight while he sort out the voucher with the company. Our 8 minutes flight took us around Woolamai Surf Beach (one of the best known surf beaches in the country and its life saving club) and Cape Woolamai (The highest point on the island and home to the Pinnacles and the old Granite Quarry).
