Soulfood and Solitude
Could there possibly be anything more romantic that being abandoned on a beautiful, secluded, completely empty beach with the one you love? No one around for miles and miles and nothing to do but be together…swoon alert, possibly even cherry red swoon alert. That said, Pterodactyl Helicopters have worked out something just a tiny bit better than waiting for either a passing ship or a slow death – because really, once the thrill of danger wears off, mortal peril is no longer a turn on.
Our Island Getaway package takes all the best parts of being marooned and adds some convenient luxury, such as picnic baskets and private helicopter transport.
Presto – perfection!
If you want to whisk your boy or girl Friday away on an adventure they won’t soon forget, the Island Getaway can’t be beat. You’ll get all the delights of being solo – certain special someone excepted, of course – on one of Australia’s most glorious beaches, Stradbroke Island, to be precise; but Pterodactyl’s dedicated team will turn your Robinson Crusoe into Robinso Cruisy, as we take care of all the little details that make a day out truly special.
The Island Getaway gives you three hours to eat, drink and explore your private picnic spot; whether you’d prefer a breakfast on the beach or feel more like a picnic lunch is entirely up to you. In fact, this whole experience is about taking it easy and letting us do all the work.
Depending on what is most convenient for you, you can board your private aircraft at our Lake Manchester Hangar, the Ipswich Helipad or the Archerfield Aerodrome; or, if you feel like a being a little extra-extra-extravagant, we can even pick you up straight from home. Yes, in a helicopter. Provided you have sufficient landing space.
Pterodactyl Helicopters will provide you with a gourmet picnic, a bottle of wine included (naturally!), and a souvenir hamper that will come in handy for all your future picnic adventures.
We will get you in the mood by taking you the scenic route to Stradbroke Island, setting your hearts aflutter with some of the most spectacular vista’s the great South-East has to offer; leave you to love it up to your hearts content; and finally, fly you home over the sprawling Brisbane outskirts, giving you one last taste of being above it all…even if it’s only for a little while.
If you want to have a spectacular picnic but don’t feel like cooking and hunting for hours for a suitable carpark before hiking with your meal to a spot you presumed would be private, that turns out to be rammed with canoodling teenagers; contact Pterodactyl Helicopters today and treat yourself to the ultimate picnic experience. We guarantee you’ll be all by yourself and there won’t be a vegemite sandwich in sight.
