Melbourne Seaplanes was recently featured in an article published in The Age - 'That's who I am': Life for the Victorians out of work

Brett and Barb Audus - owners of Melbourne Seaplanes, were recently interviewed by Rachael Dexter from The Age

The coronavirus pandemic has brought about one of the quietest periods in the life of The Spirit of Williamstown, a six-cylinder Cessna 185 seaplane.

"She's been a seaplane twice, I think she's been a crop duster and parachuting aircraft."

These days she’s locked up behind fences at the desolate Williamstown marina.

"March 20 was our last flight. It’s come to a complete standstill."

I thoroughly enjoyed my flight with Melbourne Seaplanes. The service leading up to the flight was very friendly and professional and the flight itself was an incredible experience. Everything was well organised and made for a very memorable and enjoyable trip. I highly recommend Melbourne Seaplanes

What a fabulous experience. A short flight around Hobson's Bay with stunning views of Melbourne and surrounds. We live in the area so it was wonderful to see our home in a beautiful new way. Thanks to Rod for his amusing commentary & to Barb in her little box offering friendly local advice.

A Bird's Eyeview of Melbourne

What a wonderful way to see the Melbourne Skyline. Had a flight that took in the bay, the city of Melbourne and the Dandenongs. I am a nervous flyer but had no concerns on this flight!!! Wonderful service from the pilot Brett and his wife Barbara, great ambassadors for Melbourne tourism. Highly recommend.

A wonderful experience!

I booked a flight for my father and I as a birthday present for him. Not only was the flight an experience I think everyone should do, Barbara and Brett were lovely people to help me organise the trip and take us on our flight. We did the the Half Moon Bay flight which gave us amazing views of the coast, the city and even a shipwreck and old submarine! I was also pleasantly surprised with the smooth take off and landing for anyone who doesn't like bumpy rides
