Savor views of beautiful Brisbane from an unbeatable vantage point – on a helicopter tour! Escape the city for a thrilling 25-minute flight along the Brisbane River and see a different side to the city, away from the high-rise buildings and bustling promenades. Follow the meandering river on a scenic route, passing over the shimmering Lake Manchester, the waterfront town of Fernvale and an expanse of rugged bushlands.

The country pub is a tradition as old as most of Aussie’s country towns. On this thrilling pub crawl with a difference, enjoy the classic country pub experience without the hassle of a long drive (and the risk of getting picked to be the sober driver). Take to the Queensland skies in a helicopter and touch down at a series of different country pubs, where you can sample local brews and enjoy a delicious pub lunch on the house.
