Flying Food Safari

Food, wine, beer the staple of Australian life. Being able to put the right beverage with a particular meal is a fine art and when you get it right it’s simply magic. In this region they are not starved for choice when it comes to great food, interesting wines and out of the ordinary beers.

Now imagine if you could sample a range of different food experiences, expertly matched with the right wine or beer all in one day! To top it off, everything is produced locally from local farms, boutique wineries and breweries. These interesting places are spread out, so using traditional transport would limit you to only one or two. How cool would it be to do six in the same day?

Impossible by car, but not by helicopter.

Each location is special and the trip between venues features view of undulating plains, lakes and the beautiful mountains of the greater Brisbane region.
