About Our Helicopter Pub Crawl

A must-do

A truly authentic Australian experience

This is as amazing and simple as it sounds.  Your day will take you to Outback Pubs, Irish Pubs, Beach Pubs, Mountain Pubs, Pubs by lakeside, Pubs on marinas – all unique, and unapologetically, locally, authentic. This package is for the hire of the entire helicopter which seats up to three passengers.

Our tour is different; not only will you tour the best hand-picked pubs in the region, you will travel all around Brisbane; Beaudesert; The Hinterlands, Gold Coast; South Stradbroke, North Stradbroke & Moreton Islands. We don’t just directly fly from one pub to the next but make this into a full helicopter experience of a life-time. The scenery is breathtaking.

We have heavily discounted this tour because we want it to be accessible to as many people as possible. Our competitors charge double or more with few pubs and scenic options. This is a full day tour; 9:30 – 5-ish. We also offer a half day tour here. In total you will visit 6 pubs for a full day, 4 for a half day tour. Have a larger group? No problem, we can take more helicopters. We can also pick up from your property, contact us for a custom quote

Full Day Tour

First stop The Veresdale Hotel

We start off with a local, country Pub just a few km’s shy of a local town, Beaudesert. One of the older, family friendly hotels in Queensland, the Veresdale , or the ‘V’ Hotel as it is now affectionately known, was sold privately in November, 2010. Since that time it has been tastefully renovated in keeping with the best attributes of the friendly Hotel atmosphere

The Veresdale is situated right in the heart of Queensland’s richest dairy, beef and horse stud area, with the very best of the State’s Thoroughbred racing horse studs.

The Hotel may look a little small from the outside, but once indoors you have access to beautiful outdoor dining areas, where the pastoral view is quite spectacular. Don’t forget there is a stylish gazebo for that special luncheon or dinner.

In the new modern kitchen, chefs produce fine food from the Grill and offer an array of great cuisine & specials. Families with children are welcome at the Veresdale Hotel and can either dine outside or in the fully renovated and air-conditioned Restaurant which offers an inviting, relaxed atmosphere, typical of the friendly Hotel tradition

Next you’ll be flat-out like a lizard drinking – at the Bearded Dragon*

The Bearded Dragon is a Free house (pub), a pub that is owned independently of the breweries that supply it. The Bearded Dragon is much more than just a tavern and accommodation. They also have a reptile & crocodile show three times a week, cane toads racing as well as bird watching, walking tracks in the beautiful Mount Tamborine mountain, and 15 cold beers on tap

*Please pace yourselves, you have many more pubs still to go

Eagle Heights – That’s the one on top of the mountain

Eagle Heights Mountain Resort on Tamborine Mountain has a full panoramic view of the Gold Coast. It spans far beyond Stradbroke Island to the North, and all the way into New South Whales to the south. The resort is most famous for its beer garden; and is a very popular stop with motorbike riders who come to enjoy the roads

Next we are going to take a break and take in the views of the Gold Coast

We are detouring via the gorgeous beaches of the Gold Coast. This will be the most scenic part of our flight as we descend down to 500ft (150m) along the pacific ocean coast.

Harrigans Irish Pub – It’s in the name

Harrigan’s at Calypso Bay is located in the heart of Calypso Bay, a unique community set beside the calm and sheltered waters of southern Moreton Bay, midway between Brisbane and the Gold Coast. Offering stunning water views to the Broadwater and beyond, lush tropical gardens and the finest interior finish, Harrigan’s is the perfect setting for our guests to relax and enjoy our friendly atmosphere

Harrigan’s is an authentic Irish Pub which offers an emporium of fine wines and food along with that famous Irish hospitality. Bands are on offer each weekend, with many genres of music from Jazz to Blues and pop to rock n roll. Live music that the whole family can enjoy

Harrigans Irish Pub

Beautiful beaches, sandbanks of North Straddie and Moreton Bay

As picturesque as it gets. We will be flying up the islands. As we hug the coastline, we often see dugongs, sharks, stingrays, turtles and even sometimes whales

Moreton Island

The Gutter Bar – You have [figuratively] ran aground on the best Bar on Moreton

Leaving the best for last. The Gutter Bar is the sole definition of an authentic Ausie beach pub. Positioned on the southern tip of Moreton island you will feel like you have been flown to the Caribbean. The seafood, especially the oysters, is in a class of its own. Sustainability and environment is at the core of the industry, our local oyster provider tells it best. The place is truly special and is the only pub that we do exclusive tours to. We have also partnered with a local accommodation provider in case you want to stay over night/weekend

Flight Back

Finally a direct flight back to Archerfield, or why not see Brisbane City from the air with a city scenic upgrade? Only an additional $195.00 for 3 people ($65.00pp)

For more details please see our Brisbane Highlights flight

Brisbane Scenic Flight

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)


I have a group larger than 3

Can we organise a larger group

The pricing for this tour is a little different. $1785.00 will get you your own private helicopter for the entire day which seats up to 3 people. We can accommodate more people by simply taking more helicopters. If you have a group of 4-6, we will take an extra helicopter for $1785.00. If your group is 7-9 then we will take an other helicopter and so forth and so on. Whilst we do have access to turbine powered aircraft which seat many more people; due to number of cycles (starts and shut-downs of the helicopter) the extra cost is significant. However, if you are wanting a no expense spared experience contact us directly and we will be able to look after you

$1785.00 per helicopter (seats 3 passengers)

I'm wanting a turbine powered helicopter

Fancy. We can organise a larger, turbine powered aircraft for you. Please contact us to discuss the option that is most appropriate to your requirements

Once there…

Can we add beers and food to the package?

We have made a decision not to include pre-purchased drinks and food to this package. We do not want our customers to drink more than what they otherwise would do and we want you to have a choice at which pub you dine in (the Gutter Bar is our favourite, but it will be late when we get there, so we recommend to snack during the experience)

How long is this experience?

9:30am – 5:00pm; we can start later, but please keep in mind that you will not be able to spend as much time enjoying beers on the ground

The half-day tour goes for the entire afternoon (but we won’t stop you if you want to go drinking in the morning)

Intoxication Policy

Please note that aviation laws are extremely strict in Australia. We would like you to have an amazing time. But we are not by law allowed to fly heavily intoxicated people. Keep this in consideration and try to pace yourself. Remember that this is an experience and one that you want to remember. We have never had a problem since we started running these tours [touch wood] and we have never had a customer who didn’t enjoy the experience
