Pub Crawl? Been there, done that. Try Flying Pub Tours!

Let’s face it, there’s only so many times you can make your way from one end of Fortitude Valley to the other until the novelty wears off. So, rather than making do with your local for another weekend like any other, get your next pub crawl off to a flying start with Pterodactyl Helicopters? We offer all the tried and true delights of the traditional Aussie pub crawl with the added rock star glamour of your private chopper as means of transport – so no need to worry about a designated driver!


Country Pub Crawl by Chopper? Yes, please!

Pterodactyl Helicopters’ Country Pub Crawl takes you and up to five mates to some of the finest watering holes of South East Queensland. Running from 9.30am to 4.30pm, our high flying pub tour leaves enough time to visit five of our select locations at a leisurely pace, drinking in spectacular sceneries from up high alongside delicious, locally-produced beverages.

Our selection of pubs includes:

The Sundowner Saloon, offering a range of tasty craft beers and famous for its German heritage – which is of course excellent news when it comes to beer.

The Dugandan Hotel, or The Dugie as it’s known, where you can kick back and enjoy the charms of a quintessential Queensland pub – and some fine wines courtesy of Sirromet winery, if you fancy.

The Bearded Dragon, one of the secret hot spots on beautiful Mount Tambourine that is sure to please all senses – the view from the top as you arrive is going to simply blow your mind.

The Pumpyard Bar and Brewery, an absolute gem of a place when it comes to artisanal brew. The Pumpyard is a leading force in the noble battle against boring beers and its selection is second to none.

Pterodactyl Helicopters also frequent the Royal Hotel Harrisville, the Mulgowie Hotel, the Peak Pub,the Glamorganvale Hotel, the Porters Plainland Tavern, The V Hotel in Veresdale, The Scenic Rim Brewery and many more.

Spoilt for choice? No, you’re not – because our Country Pub Crawl route is not up to you.

Pterodactyl will take you on a series of blind dates with these beer-flavoured beauties, so all you need to do is lean back, relax and let the day take its course. With so many great locations to visit, you can’t loose.


Pterodactyl Helicopters’ pub tours depart from Lake Manchester, our Ipswich Helipad or the Archerfield Aerodrome – unless you would like us to pick you up directly from home (residence permitting). The tour includes a beverage at each stop as well as lunch at one of them, so there’s nothing more to it than hopping into your chartered chopper, high-five your fellow crawlers and get set for an epic day of fun.

Contact us today to get set for the pub crawl to end all pub crawls! We’re ready when you are.

Fly into your Wedding in style

Congratulations, you’re engaged, and are now planning your upcoming wedding! It is a truth universally acknowledged that a couple taking this flying leap into matrimony are in want of the perfect wedding day; a true event that will stick with you and your family and friends for the rest of your lives!

You’ve got a lot to organise before you float down the aisle, so we won’t take up much of your time:

Have you considered arriving at your wedding by helicopter?

Here’s some of the ways that Pterodactyl Helicopters can help make your wedding party soar:

  • We can arrange both limousine and helicopter transfers to your wedding ceremony and/or wedding reception venue.
  • Our helicopter won’t start until you’re boarded, and will do a full shut-down upon landing – so that your dress and hair will stay in tact.
  • Take as many photos as you like with the helicopters! We allow the time, and work to your schedule.
  • Did we mention the free sparkling wine on arrival at the helipad? No? Okay, we have now. Free wine.

And if weather happens, and the helicopter is unfortunately unable to fly you to your wedding, the limousine will transfer you all the way to your ceremony or reception.

Pterodactyl Helicopters prides itself on attention to detail, and promises you no hidden costs

And now a word from one of our celebrity brides:

Oh my goodness, greatest helicopter company ever! Captain Mike was so amazing during the whole planning phase, truly making me feel super special arranging a mega mega stretched Limo with champagne (citycoastlimo) – not to mention all the emails leading up to the big day making me feel famous – to pick my 3 bridesmaids, my mother and myself with a massive wedding dress (talking 4kg massive) on to then take us to the helipad where there was..wait for it, not one but two helicopters (I’d only organised one and he never charge me any more). We were all in the air for at least 30 min.
Love you guys Pterodactyl Helicopters! Can’t wait to meet again, this time with my husband for one of your pub crawls.
Thanks again Captain Mike you legend!

– From the happiest bride ever, Amy x
