High Adrenalin

adrenalinIpswich is not just the little country town west of Brisbane anymore. Ipswich is a great place to visit and a wonderful place to live. Just 40 minutes west of Brisbane and an hour from the Gold Coast, Ipswich combines rich heritage with the energy of being the hub of today’s growth region in South East Queensland.

Ipswich has a huge range of family attractions but hey, you don’t want to look at old houses, you want some action. Ipswich boasts quite a number of attractions for those looking for family friendly fun, outdoor adventure or even better, adrenalin junkie action.

If you are looking for a unique experience there are a number of attractions that will satisfy your need to push the envelope. In the past you could choose any one of these great experiences but now you can do the lot.

In one day you can take a ride in an Air Boat, dog fight in a WWII Aircraft, ride a Quad Bike up the beaten track, drive a V8 supercar, jump out of an Airplane, play commando at the Paintball fields and what better way to get to each of them than flying by Helicopter (or bus if you are a real wimp).

At the end of the day you’ll want to rest your weary bones and you will find a surprising variety of accommodation to suit your special needs – stylish serviced apartments, boutique luxury hotels, charming B&B’s, quality motels, cosy self-contained cottages, historic rural retreats and traditional pubs.

If you are looking for a unique corporate event or team bonding experience, why not work with our team to create that once in a lifetime event your staff will talk about for years to come.

Every time they look at that broken bone or bent nose they will remember what a great time you gave them.

Pterodactyl Helicopters is involved with several of the high-adrenalin packages – click through for more information about each:

The River Run
