Picnic in Paradise – Dating Deluxe

Spring is here – and with it come perfect blue skies and balmy temperatures, ideal conditions to take your romantic sojourns outdoors. Parks, beaches and hillsides are beginning to team with lovebirds out for picnics, which is nice but not particularly extraordinary. If you feel it’s time to shake out the picnic rug and take your beloved out for a few hours of romantic bliss in true style, look no further.
Pterodactyl Helicopters offer a number of outings for that certain someone special that will leave any couple gazing at one another adoringly, punch-drunk on sun and adventure.


Island Getaway

At Pterodactyl Helicopters we have discovered the secret formula for the perfect date. This spring, treat you other half to an exclusive picnic experience, starting with transport in your private helicopter. Leaving from the outskirts of Brisbane or even directly from your house (provided there is sufficient landing space), Pterodactyl will fly your directly to one of the gorgeous secluded beaches of Stradbroke Island – allowing you to drink in one of South East Queensland’s most beguiling sceneries in perfect solitude.
And no, you don’t even have to make your own sandwiches – we will provide you with a gourmet picnic lunch (or brunch…or dinner) and a souvenir hamper to take home.
What are you waiting for? Spent a few hours marooned on a romantic desert island with your favourite person in the world – it’s a date neither of you will soon forget.


Total Indulgence Country Wine Tour

There’s nothing like some wine tasting in the lush Queensland countryside to greet the sunny season. This kind of simple yet sophisticated pleasure can only be improved by one thing: luxury transport by limousine and chartered helicopter.
Pterodactyl Helicopters’ Indulgence Country Wine Tour includes a limousine ride to your closest helipad, either directly from the airport or from your Brisbane or Gold Coast hotel; just to get your daytrip off to a classy start. From then on, it’s pure decadence, as you are flown from one winery to the next, taking in the scenery from a birds-eye perspective in between samples of the finest wines and foods the region has to offer.
Best off all, as the day tour is spaced over a leisurely eight hours, you can take your time and really savour all the treat this spectacular day out has to offer.


Sunset & Overnight

Yes, Pterodactyl Helicopters’ day trip options are amazing, but why stop as the day ends? When it comes to our Sunset & Overnight package, as the sun goes down – you go up!
Take in a the spectacular Brisbane sunset from up close and watch the city’s vibrant nightlife flicker into action below you as we fly you over the CBD and Southbank precinct at magic hour.

After your joyride you will be delivered directly to either the Quest Apartments of The Country Motel for a gourmet dinner and a night of luxury accommodation.

Helicopter Wine Tours

Because who doesn’t love a wine tour? We can guarantee your mum will.

Helicopter Lunch Tours

Take mum out for a Mother’s Day lunch she’ll be talking about for years! Fly in by private helicopter tour to one of our spectacular partner resorts, restaurants or vineyards where you’ll be given a sumptuous lunch (or breakfast, or brunch – you choose), fine wines, and a bottle to take home with you per couple (if you choose the winery options). Once you’ve eaten and drank your fill, we’ll fly you out – no sitting in traffic! – so you can just sit back with mum and take in the spectacular views. Read more about Pterodactyl Helicopter’s Lunch Tours.
