The state of Queensland is littered with numerous amazing wineries, particularly those located across Greater Ipswich, the Scenic Rim and the Somerset Region. Some are hidden away, some are hard to find, and all of them can be hard to drive to! Don’t worry about finding a designated driver, we have a better solution! How about having your own helicopter pilot fly you from winery to winery? You will be able to alternate tasting amazing wines from the region’s finest wine-makers with taking in the amazing views from thousands of feet in the air! We even include one bottle of wine per couple from each winery on the tour as well as lunch. Once you’ve experienced a wine tour like this, no other wine tour will ever compare! With us, getting to the winery is half the fun.
With a variety of wineries in the region, it is impossible to see them all in one day. For this reason, we have created a few standard helicopter winery tours that we feel give our guests the best experience possible. Should you desire a custom tour with specific wineries in mind, we would be more than happy to create a customized itinerary for you!
