Make this Fathers’ Day Memorable with Pterodactyl Helicopters!

Fathers’ Day is just around the corner – 2nd of September (you’re welcome) – and we’re all looking for a way to give the dads in our lives a treat to remember. While macaroni necklaces and Sunday roasts are nothing to be sneezed at, the team Pterodactyl Helicopters has a few day trip suggestions that will quite literally elevate your fathers’ day to a new standard.

So, whether you’re treating your own dad, the father of your children or both of them together; check out these offers to show your appreciation with a gift that won’t end up at the back of the cupboard.


Lunch Tours (Pub)

The humble pub lunch has long been a fathers’ day favourite for many Australian families. However, why not step things up this year and fly dad to one of our eight select pub lunch locations? Most of our participating pubs have been serving satisfied customers for over a century and are the perfect destination for your special day.

Whether you whisk your partner away for a romantic lunch for two, treat your parents or take the whole crew; with private helicopters accommodating 2-6 passengers the choice is yours.
And, provided your front yard is on the spacious side, we’ll even pick you up from home!


Helicopter Golf Tours

Taking dad for 18 holes as a fathers’ day treat? Nice.
Flying dad in his private helicopter to one of South East Queensland’s finest golf courses? Even nicer!

Taking off from Pterodactyl Helicopters exclusive helipads, you get to enjoy breathtaking scenery on route to the green of your choice (our current destinations include Link Hope Island Resort, RACV Royal Pines, Sanctuary Cove Resort and Palm Meadows Resort), before spending a leisurely few hours putting in good company. If you feel so inclined we can arrange a lunch for you to end your excursion in style.
