We had a fabulous morning in the Yarra Valley. Worth getting up at 3.00am for a 45 minute drive from CBD and a spectacular flight. Our pilot, Victor, was very reassuring and skilled. Highly recommend.

I've been wanting to do this for ever and finally did it today! Flight over the city from Yarra Bend to Moorrabin. The team at Picture This made it a fantastic day, from start to end, including the champagne breakfast at the Sofitel! Magnifique!!

never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
