Helicopter Joy Flights
We conduct scenic joy flights from a number of locations during the year in the Ipswich, Scenic Rim, Somerset, Lockyer Valley and Brisbane. Mostly these are at Country shows or special events at various venues. We do run rides at Schulte’s Meat Tavern at Painland, just east of Gatton on the Warrego Highway on a more regular basis just check out the calendar to see when we will be there again.
We generally operate joy flights from 10:30am to 3:30pm. If you require a helicopter joy flight outside these hours please phone and we will see what we can do.
Make your helicopter joy flight a whole day affair by enjoying the great facilities each of the landing sites has to offer. Even better, visit all four – we can do transfer joy flights between venues if you like.
Although it is best to book your joy flight you can just show up on the day at any one our landing sites below.
Woodlands of Marburg
Overlooking the picturesque Marburg Valley just up the road from Warrego Wines, the heritage-listed two storey plantation-style mansion is nestled amongst 250 acres of sweeping grounds and rolling hills.
Woodlands of Marburg offers modern facilities amidst historic surrounds, ensuring our guests enjoy all the estate has to offer. Their boutique accommodation, dining, leisure, event venue and conference facilities are all available for you to enjoy during your visit and we can cater to every need.
Take a helicopter joy flight then stay for a coffee, have lunch, stay overnight or make a weekend of it. We did the romantic weekend package with several friends and it was just terrific. We had excellent rooms, wonderful service and great food.
The Sundowner Hotel
This quaint country hotel offers great meals in a typical country hotel atmosphere with great views of the Marburg valley and ranges.
The hotel is located on top of the hill right on the Warrego Highway you can’t miss it. In fact you have to pass the hotel to get to the Australian Motorcycle Museum.
Right next door is the famous Sundowner Pie shop. I have to tell you these are the best pies I have ever had.
Grab a drink, eat a pie then go for a helicopter joy flight – what better way to spend the day?
