Want to feel the excitement of a helicopter flight at low level? Well this is the ride for you!
We are lucky enough to be right next to the Brisbane River and we take you in our R44 helicopter at low level, following the river from lake Manchester to either Fernvale or Wivenhoe Dam.
We then do a tight turn and follow the river back again.
