Trip Info

Are you looking for a thrill to remember? Well look no further because this low level helicopter flight is an unbeatable adventure that will get your adrenaline pumping.

On this tour we will follow the Brisbane River from Lake Manchester in our Robinson R44 helicopter, ending up at either Fernvale or Wivenhoe Dam, depending on the package you select. The Robinson R44 is a light helicopter that seats three passengers, however for this flight we only carry two with a maximum weight of 120 kilograms each to ensure the best possible experience. When we reach the end of the river run, at the dams, we will do a tight turn and head back to our starting point.

You will find this flight absolutely thrilling. Your guide and pilot, Captain Mike, loves this tour too – its one of his favourites!

Your adventure awaits!
