There is probably no season more perfect than the early Queensland winter – the sun is out, the skies are bright, the temperatures divine. In other words, absolutely perfect picnic conditions. That – unfortunately – means that every parkland in the greater Brisbane area is so chockers, a giant could play twister on the multi-coloured picnic rugs covering every inch of grass.
Luckily, Pterodactyl Helicopters has come up with a perfect solution to this picnic conundrum – an all-inclusive Gourmet Picnic package, guaranteeing you peace, quiet, beautiful scenery and winter romance galore.
If you book a Gourmet Picnic tour with Pterodactyl Helicopters, you and your special someone are in for as many treats as the human mind and body can feasibly sustain.
Firstly, of course, there is the journey to your private picnic location in one of our state-of-the-art helicopters. Travelling the scenic route to your chosen spot in true Rockstar style, it’s an experience that really sets the mood for a special outing for two.
Our Gourmet Picnic flights usually depart from our Lake Manchester hangar or the Archerfield Airport; that said, if you feel that driving yourself to either of these locations would put a damper on your romantic day out, we are happy to collect you directly from home…yes, in a helicopter.
(Side note: if you want to stage an anniversary surprise, or something equally outrageous, hiring a chopper for door-to-door transport in pretty surprising.)
Secondly, Pterodactyl Helicopters have done all the hard reconnaissance work for you. We’ve spent so much time flying across the great South-East, we know its every nook and cranny – so we understand that you might be spoilt for choice and unable to decide where you want to go.
For your convenience, we have hand-picked three outstanding Gourmet Picnic destinations: Woodlands of Marburg, Spicers Hiddenvale and, should you feel particularly adventurous, a mystery riverside location guaranteed to knock your socks off.
And finally, the Gourmet Picnic experience absolves you of all responsibilities. When we say that all you need to do is show up, we mean this literally. We take you there, we pick you up, we take you home AND we provide you with everything you need for your picnic.
From a picnic basket filled with incredible culinary delights (no vegemite sandwiches, we swear), including a bottle of wine, to all the rugs, cutlery and other bits and pieces you might require – we will take care of it.
It’s time to kick your winter romance into the next gear – after all, nothing warms us from within quite like love – and we have the secret ingredients to your winter-afternoon-dream ready to go. Contact Pterodactyl Helicopters today and let us show you the sunny side of the coolish season. We look forward to flying with you soon.
