An exclusive Helicopter Pub Crawl for Beers, Burgers & Gin in the Yarra Valley
Overview - Helicopter Pub Crawl to Watts River Brewery, Monroe's Burgers & Four Pillars Distillery in Healesville
Take a helicopter ride from Melbourne to Healesville for a more authentic and down-to-earth tour in pursuit of the BEST Beers, Burgers and Gin the Yarra Valley. It's like a helicopter wine tour to the Yarra Valley but you don't need to wear loafers or a polo shirt.
🍺 BEERS at Watts River Brewery
Your first stop will be Watts River Brewery for BEERS. Founded and run by two families of mad keen brewers, Watts River Brewery has been crafting the Yarra Valley's best IPAs, Stouts and Pale Ales since 2016. Set in their very own 500L brewery around the corner from the Watts River, owners Aaron and Ben (or their wives if they've got a sneaky day off) will walk you through tasting paddles of 5 boutique beers and show you just how they get each brew so elegant and crispy.
🍔 BURGERS at Monroe's Burgers & Beers
Your second stop is the legendary Monroe's Burgers & Beers for BURGERS. With over 1,000 reviews on Google and burgers like the “Captain Sanders” and crazy weekly specials like the Indian inspired “Naan of your Business” and “The Homer” (a burger bun made out of donuts!) it's fair to say Monroe's Burgers are in a league of their own. Enjoy a unique burger creation cooked to perfection (aka medium) with loaded fries and chicken tendies on the side (why not??) and sit back while your tummy soaks up the sublime burger-y goodness.
🥃 GIN at Four Pillars Distillery

Getting between each venue is about 10 minutes on foot and this'll give you the opportunity to stretch your legs and walk off that alcohol.

What a brilliant day, Ed is such a great host , lovely guy and a great pilot. One of the best experiences we've had, thanks Ed and rotor one, we will be back !!
What a great day from start to finish and a way to kick off 2022!
With so many Heli winery trips out there i was waiting to find one that was a little more relaxed and different so was thrilled to see the Brewery, Burgers & Gin tour! From the moment i contacted Rotor One to ask some questions and book, their customer service and communication was great, friendly and always helpful which made the decision to spend this money a lot easier knowing we would be in great hands. Each venue looked after us well and our pilot made sure personally that our day was running smoothly. Definitely felt like VIP's for the day with Rotor One as well as all the other venues we visits.
Our pilot Ed was awesome! Went above and beyond all day to ensure we had a great trip. He was very friendly and easy to get along with. He is a great pilot, the flight was so smooth and flawless. Ed was attentive and knowledgeable and able to point out a lot of sights along our flight. He is a pure natural and helps make the experience what it is.
You will not be disappointed, It was a day to remember!
