About Tiger Moth World
Spectacular adventure flights along the Great Ocean Road. Tiger Moth World is ideally located in Torquay at the start of the Great Ocean Road. Step back in time and climb aboard an authentic WW2 open cockpit biplane for the flight of a lifetime. For those who dare, turn your life upside down with a choice of aerobatics from mild through to extreme. Whatever flight you choose, you will wing your way along the beaches and rugged cliff tops of the world famous Great Ocean Road! 12 Apostles flights are also available in our modern aircraft - the best and only way to see the whole of the Great Ocean Road and 12 Apostles is from the start at Torquay. And do it in comfort and style in a modern aircraft. Australian Skydive are also based at the same location and offer tandem skydiving.

Cruising to Lorne and back today with Pat the Pilot was definitely one of my favourite lifetime experiences, and that’s saying plenty at my age. Highly recommend doing this It’s amazing a beautiful old plane is available for the public to experience it. Felt amazing being in an old classic feeling the wind and not forgetting the unbelievable view It was also terrific to allow my family to walk up to the plane as we prepare for take off and landing for photos Thanks to everyone, friendly and professional and keep up the great work. Will definitely love to do this again

What an experience. I was given a Coastal Adventure combined with a Barnstorming experience for my 70th birthday (by reading recent reviews there are other families who are trying to scare their 70 year olds to death). It didn't work!! I upgraded my barnstorming experience to Wild Aerobatics and also included the Video (Why would you not want to have that memory recorded). I took my own hand held video camera to record my flight as the other video is a fixed camera facing back towards your face. I was able to record video out the side, forwards and down. Unfortunately my own video suffered from some vibrations due to wind buffeting but is certainly watchable. The plane video is as steady as a rock as the camera is mounted. The combination of both make for a great memory. My pilot was Pat who did a magnificent job. From the minute I walked into the hangar he was friendly and informative. His preflight briefing was concise. As far as my flight was concerned I was very lucky as the two planes were in use and we took off and flew in formation for several minutes before separating to do our own thing. This is something that does not happen all the time. I happened to be in the right spot at the right time. All recorded on video. My flight from Torquay to Point RoadKnight (Anglesea) was great. 4-500 feet off the deck so you had a great view of all the scenery. The majority of the aerobatics were done over the Torquay Airport so your family can enjoy the event as well (but nowhere near as much as you). Loops, barrel rolls, wing stands and other moves I'm not sure about but all enjoyable. My advice to all 70 year olds is to start dropping hints for a gift certificate for this experience. If they don't take the hint - Spend their inheritance and shout yourself the ride of a lifetime.

If I could give more than 5 stars, I certainly would!!! Highly recommended - we gave our teenagers vouchers for their 18th birthdays as an experience of a lifetime ... but I suspect they will be back to try the flight with extreme aerobatics! They LOVED their flights, and the pilot, Chris, was fantastic! Worth every cent - they will remember this for decades to come and smile every time they think of it!

This was the flight experience of a lifetime!! From my initial contact with Tigermoth World through to the end of the flight a fabulous experience, given to me by my family for a 70th birthday present. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The pilot Patrick explained the cockpit and contacted during the trip to say what was happening. I rate this as awesome and highly recommend this to everyone even slightly interested in vintage aircraft.
