Wine tours Brisbane Ipswich and Scenic Rim

There are many excellent wineries dotted across greater Ipswich, the Scenic Rim, and Somerset Region of Queensland. Some of the best are hidden away and hard to find unless you know where to look. Why travel by car or coach – think helicopter!

GETTING THERE IS HALF THE FUN

We have hand-picked some of the region’s best boutique wineries to show you by helicopter. Our experienced pilots will fly you in comfort while you sit back in the helicopter, relax and enjoy breathtaking views matched by premium quality wines served by the region’s finest wine-makers. Lunch will be provided and you can select a bottle of wine from each winery to take home.

We visit the following venues by helicopter:

  • Normanby Wines
  • Paradine Wines
  • Bunjurgen Estate *
  • Ironbark Ridge Vineyard *
  • Kooroomba Vineyards and Lavender Farm *
  • Sirromet Wines *
  • Albert River Wines *
  • Sarabah Estate Winery*
  • O’Reilly’s Canungra Valley Vineyards *
  • Ocean View Estate Winery *
  • Woongooroo Estate Vineyard

Lunch only venues:

  • Spicers Hidden Vale *
  • Woodlands of Marburg *

Mansion tour:

  • Woodlands of Marburg *

Those marked with * are a lunch venue as well.

There are too many wineries to show you them all in one day so we built a few standard helicopter winery tours to choose from. Choose the helicopter tour that suits you, and off we go. Or, you can create something special that falls outside the standard helicopter tours – just ask and we will price it for you.
