Town and Country Scenic Flights

So, you think Brisbane, Ipswich and their surroundings have no surprises left in store for you? You are, dare we say it, a little bored with them? Pterodactyl Helicopters invites you to challenge your perceptions with a true change of perspective – a birds’ perspective to be exact.
Whether you are longing to see the ever-expanding sprawl of the Ipswich CBD from above, want to see the Brisbane skyline like you never have before, or feel the need to reconnect with nature from high above – we have scenic helicopter flights for you, no matter what your preference.


Pterodactyl Helicopters currently offer two urban scenic helicopter tours:


Brisbane City Scenic Flight
Soar high above the Queensland capital, taking in the vast urban sprawl from the Western edge all the way to the CBD.
We will fly you over the Southbank precinct, giving you plenty of photo opportunities.
You will never look at little old Brisbane the same way once you’ve seen it from above!


Ipswich City Sights
If you think Ipswich has very little to offer in terms of sights and landmarks, you will find you are gravely mistaken.
Pterodactyl Helicopters scenic flight over Ipswich is short, sweet and unforgettable – and will leave you with a whole new appreciation for this mini-metropolis on the edge of Brisbane.


If you’d rather get out of town for a while, leaving the concrete jungle behind and soaking up some of South-East Queensland most spectacular natural vistas, check out our scenic nature helicopter flights:


Wivenhoe Dam Scenic Flight
Wivenhoe Dam, located just 80 km from the Brisbane CBD, is a true example of engineering genius. Located on the Brisbane River and supplying the majority of Brisbane’s water, Wivenhoe Dam is an integral part of our everyday – so it seems high time to appreciate it from up close.
Pterodactyl Helicopters will take you over the reservoir, the size of which will astound you when you take in its entirety from up high. We also take you for a spin over the Splityard Creek power station before returning to base.


Flinders Peak Scenic Flight
Chances are you have already seen Flinders Peak from a distance, if you have ever been up on Mount Coot-tha.
Flinders Peak is the highest mountain in the greater Brisbane area and part of the Teviot Range.
The sheer expanse of natural beauty you will experience on this tour is a little outrageous; in fact, if you’ve ever had a ‘flying dream’ this is the closest you will get to it in real life.

Whether you soar high above the mean streets of Brisbane or Ipswich or prefer to take a spin over a gorgeous natural setting – Pterodactyl Helicopters are ready for action and look forward to dazzling you.
