Scenic and Joy flights

Wivenhoe Dam is located on the Brisbane River with the dam wall being located 80km from the Brisbane CBD.

Pterodactyl Helicopter’s Wivenhoe Dam Helicopter Flight gives you, the passenger, a unique perspective of the engineering marvel and reservoir that supplies the majority of Brisbane’s water. We cruise around the dam wall as well as Split-yard Creek power station before returning back to base over some really cool country side.

Lynne had a fantastic day, on her 71st Birthday, riding in a Helicopter, she has always wanted to fly in one, where I made her dream come true. The flight over Wivenhoe Dam and Lake Manchester and the surrounding countryside was awesome, and more spectacular than she could of imagined from the air, and a trip that will last a lifetime. Thank you Capt. Mike you were awesome, and would like to travel with you again, and a thank you to you and Johey for being perfect hosts on the day.
