High Tea at Flaxton Gardens

Flaxton Gardens presents the Tapas High Tea, boasting magnificent panoramic views of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, an exceptional experience not to be missed for a special occasion or a long overdue catch up with family and friends. A contemporary twist is added to the traditional style high tea by incorporating unique Sunshine Coast flavours and special serving touches. The menu may vary from time to time, as locally-sourced produce and new taste sensations are continually explored.

High tea celebrations at Flaxton Gardens are ideal for groups and are particularly popular for baby showers, pre-wedding events and birthdays. Guests can enjoy an elegant morning tea amidst the sumptuous set-up across the venue, taking in the breath-taking views of the Sunshine Coast coastline, depending on the season.

Upon arrival, guests will be served with a plate of savoury selections followed by a dessert plate, with a hot beverage (plunger coffee or pot of tea per person) and a bonbonniere of chocolates. Each guest can relish a selection of three delicate sweets and three savouries.

For a High Tea event, pre-order and pre-payment are crucial as our chefs need to source local produce, ensuring everything is set and ready upon guests’ arrival.

Most of our customers upgrade to a Brisbane CBD Scenic, which really does take the experience to the next level. If you’re looking to get from the airport and back the fastest, or on a budget the direct flight is the choice for you. Don’t worry, we do not implement techniques to up-sell every flight, or treat any of our customers differently – everyone gets the same Bekaa Air service

P.S. If you’re already stretching your budget, your loved one will be over the moon with a direct flight

City Scenic (+$99.00pp)

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 botanical gardens. We will bend a left around the Meriton to showcase the northern side of Brisbane. Then we will complete an other arc flying past West End and Southbank. All this at a perfect height of 1000ft (300m) above the terrain bellow.

Please note that the City 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 overhead 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

FAQ

FAQ

Do you have operating hours?

We don’t have operating hours because we operate around your requirements. As long as there is light, we can fly (approx. 30min prior sunrise and 30min after sunset, but season dependent). You can call us any time between 8:00 – 17:00, with the phone being forwarded on to our Chief Pilot outside of business hours. We can land almost anywhere as long as it’s large enough to accommodate our aircraft and we can ascertain landing permission from the landowner. The only exception is our sunset flight which has it’s own time-slot each day

Can we talk during the flight?

Yes. All of our aircraft are equipped with the best Noise cancelling headsets by Bose. They are crystal clear and cancel out a significant portion of the outside noise. Your pilot will also provide commentary and let you talk between each other

What are the age/height/weight restrictions?

Whilst there is no laws restricting us to a certain age; passenger safety and taking care of you, our customers is always our number one priority. This is why we have made the decision to set the minimum age at 3. Infants who are younger are still developing their neck muscles. In the event of turbulence which is minor nuisance to adults can lead to whiplash in infants. Adult sized headsets fit poorly over their heads which can also lead to hearing damage. The flight can also be sometimes frighting for them, which can take away from the experience. Best leave them at home with a baby sitter and enjoy the helicopter flight

There are no height restrictions

In our R44RII helicopter which most flights are based on the maximum seat limit is 136kg and maximum payload is around 270kg

Our Bell LongRanger seats up to 6 and doesn’t have a per seat limit

What is your cancellation policy?

Perhaps a low bar to clear. Anyone who had a flight cancelled for any reason would have gone through the painful process of trying to get a refund. We did everything possible to make our cancelation policy one of the best. We are certain that you won’t find anywhere that offers a policy as transparent and flexible as ours

If you would like to reschedule your flight we ask that you do so with a 24 hour notice. Within this window our full refund policy applies

On the day if we deem the conditions to no longer be safe to fly, Bekaa Air customers can either reschedule to any other day or receive a 100% refund. If the weather is marginal (aka safe to fly but affects the experience, eg when it’s raining) we can offer full refund or to reschedule your flight to an other day

We do not offer refunds for no-shows or cancelations inside the 24 hour period

Buying as a gift?

Our gift vouchers are processed by hand and can be purchased at no extra cost. Don’t want to book a date? All vouchers are valid for 12 months and can be redeemed any time within the period. After you submit the purchase they will be created and sent to you via email. A sample of what a gift voucher looks like can be found here

About your flight

About your flight

How long can we stay?

The basic package accounts for two hours. If you require more time you can select for up to 4hrs (overnight/weekend stays exempted)

Where does this tour start?

Our helicopter tours depart from Archerfield Airport in Brisbane – Our exact location

Can we use our phones?

Yes. Unlike a commercial jet, your phones do not need to be turned to airplane mode. Nor do we charge extra for this

Will we be sitting next to someone?

This is what makes our approach unique. All of our tours, including the scenic flights – are private. This means that when you book your flight for two people, we will not sell the remaining seat to anyone else. Whilst this inadvertently means we make less on each flight, we have made this decision so we ultimately provide a better experience for our customers

Can I fly to/from somewhere else?

You can fly to anywhere you like. You can fly from anywhere you like. All we need is a written landing approval from the land-owner and an assessment by us to make sure that the area meets our safety requirements. The tours you see on our website are the hand-picked ones that meet our quality requirements. Instead of listing as many places as we can, we have selected each individual winery, lodge and resort as a top performer. You will not go wrong no matter which place you chose
