Welcome to our Wild West Pub Crawl, where you can experience the charming and rustic pubs of the Darling Downs and Great Scenic Rim. This tour is an exciting way to explore a different side of Brisbane and the Gold Coast, and offers a chance to visit five (or three, if you prefer a Half Day option) of these quaint and historic hotels. These pubs, with their wrap-around verandahs and centuries-long heritage, are the epitome of classic Queensland charm, and are known for their friendly rivalry to claim the title of Queensland’s most “quintessential pub.”
Your adventure will begin and end at Archerfield Airport, but we can also arrange a different base if you prefer. The Wild West Pub Crawl can accommodate more helicopters, making it the preferred tour for larger groups. The beauty of this tour is that each pub crawl is unique, due to the large area in the south west of Brisbane that we visit.
During the tour, each stop will be approximately 45 minutes long, with 1.5 hours allocated for lunch. Please note that the price for this tour is for the flights only, and food and drink will be paid for separately at each venue. We do not limit the number of drinks you can have, but we do ask that you keep your intoxication levels reasonable for safety reasons.
Join us on this unique tour and discover the charming and rustic pubs of the Darling Downs and Great Scenic Rim. Whether you’re a local or just visiting, you won’t want to miss this opportunity to experience a different side of Brisbane.

Country Pub Crawl
If you’re tired of seeing the same old coastline of Brisbane and the Gold Coast, our Western Country Pub Crawl is the perfect opportunity to explore a totally different side of the city. The west is wild, sprawling, and seemingly untouched, offering a unique and unforgettable experience.
On this tour, you’ll visit five (or three, if you prefer a Half Day teaser) of the charming venues scattered across the Darling Downs and foothills of the Great Scenic Rim. These pubs have a centuries-long heritage, with quaint wrap-around verandahs and rustic vibes that make them absolute Queensland classics. They’re also locked in a friendly rivalry, all vying for the title of Queensland’s most ‘quintessential pub’.
As you make your way through these charming venues, you’ll get to decide who comes out on top in your book. Don’t miss this chance to discover the wild west of Brisbane and experience a totally different day in a totally different scene.
Most of our customers upgrade to a Brisbane CBD Scenic, but if you’re looking to make the tour even more special, talk to us about the Gold Coast Scenic option to really take your 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
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
Bekaa Air’s Business Lounge at Archerfield provides refreshments, access to wifi and comfortable seating in air-conditioned rooms. Conference rooms can be also booked with any flight. We can arrange parking, transfer services, events and access to private jets. For customers who prefer not to pay extra, we utilise the Archerfield Terminal facilities which are complimentary with any Bekaa Air flight

We have two mounting positions for the go-pro. The first is positioned at the very back and top of the cabin. This mount encapsulates 160′ viewing angle of your flight. The second position is at the front, mounted to face towards you, perfect for proposals and capturing reactions of your loved one. You will receive the footage straight after the flight via the SD card

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
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
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 Airbus AS350/H125 helicopter can seat 5 passengers without an individual weight limit
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
Our gift vouchers are processed by hand and can be purchased at no extra cost. The holder is also able to upgrade their flight without incurring extra fees. Don’t want to book a date? All vouchers are valid for 3 years and can be redeemed any time within the period. They can also be transferred to an other person, and no; we do not charge extra for that either. After you submit the purchase they will be created by hand 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
We account for about 45min per pub stop. Ultimately within the time-frame, it’s up to you how long you would like to spend at each pub
Our helicopter tours depart from Archerfield Airport in Brisbane – Our exact location
Drinks are not included in the tour price. We’ve done this for a couple of important reasons. Firstly, it allows us to offer a more flexible pricing model. In the past we had to price the tour with the thirstiest of guests in mind. Secondly, it removes the pressure to drink excessively in an attempt to “get your money’s worth,” ensuring a more enjoyable and responsible experience for everyone
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
Let’s get the most important question you have out of the way first, we want you to have fun do not limit our customers to one beer per venue. However – it should be noted that this is not an opportunity to get drunk at 2,000 feet. Safety is paramount, and so are the rules around aircraft boarding whilst intoxicated. Additionally we love and we baby our helicopters, we dedicate hours per aircraft each week just to clean and look after them. We don’t contract some detailing company to do this; we do it ourselves – every day we fly. Please keep this in mind when ordering one too many. It’s about the experience; one which you want to remember!
