Why Albert River Wines

A heritage venue that captures the grandeur of our colonial past

Albert River Wines is home to three former Queensland Premiers, and the restaurant is located in what was Auchenflower House’s billiard room. It is full of history; elegance; and a relaxing, colourful dining atmosphere with gorgeous views that span across the Gold Coast Hinterlands. The venue offers both indoor and al fresco dining and caters for couples, groups, families and grand weddings or functions. The colonnaded veranda and undulating hills covered with vines will provide an immaculate setting for what is sure to be an amazing experience. Albert River Wines is open seven days a week for morning tastings and lunch

On to the views

City Scenic

Spice up your flight with a Brisbane City scenic. You will be taken past St Lucia and the Gabba, across the Brisbane River. Past Kangaroo Point and the Botanic Gardens. We will veer left around the Meriton to showcase the northern side of Brisbane. Then we will complete another arc flying past West End and Southbank. All this at a perfect height of 1000ft (300m).

Please note that the CBD is inside Brisbane Controlled Airspace. Whilst we do everything possible to secure a clearance into this airspace sometimes due to unforeseen circumstances [such as a rescue helicopter coming to land] we may not be allowed in. In this case, we will fly past South Bank and West End at the edge of the controlled airspace we will then make a left turn and fly over Mt Cootha and the TV Towers giving you a view of the entire Brisbane area. If it’s clear you will be able to sometimes see all the way to Southport and the Glasshouse Mountains.

This is the total price (Not per person)

$195.00

Gold Coast Scenic

This Gold Coast scenic flight is simply breathtaking. Unlike some companies who only take you up to South Port/Sea World. We are going to fly southbound along the coastline all the way to Q1 at 1000ft. Then we are going to descend down to 500ft (150m) for a closer look on the way back to the spit. Endless beaches, beautiful skyscrapers and brilliant blue water. No wonder it’s called Surfers Paradise.

This is the total price (Not per person)

$495.00

Moreton Bay Scenic

If you want the best experience, nothing comes close to the paradise that is Stradbroke and Moreton Island. Your flight path is going to take you eastbound, past the QEII Stadium and Mt Cotton. We will then pass Sirromet Winery and Redland Bay/Victoria point. A few island hops away is North Straddie. Here is where the real fun begins; our customers often spot whales, dugongs, stingrays and sharks amongst perfect beaches and sandbanks. We will take you all the way to the most northern tip of Moreton Island, North Point Light. Next stop Tangalooma Resort where once again we will descend to have a look at numerous shipwrecks scattered around the bay. As we turn back everyone will get an opportunity to share the other side of the experience.
