Itinerary - Helicopter Ride Brisbane

Our Brisbane helicopter rides are designed to deliver a bird’s eye view from the stunning skyscrapers of Brisbane city, to the peaks of Mount Coot Tha and Mount Gravatt. Here’s the exciting itinerary that lies ahead:

  • Depart Archerfield Airport
  • Mt Gravatt
  • University of Queensland campus
  • Brisbane River
  • Story Bridge
  • Southbank
  • Suncorp Stadium
  • Gabba (Brisbane Cricket Ground)
  • Mt Coot-Tha

On clear weather days, it's not uncommon to have spectacular views out to the Gold Coast, Moreton Island and Mount Tamborine in the distance.

What to Expect - The Best Helicopter Flight in South East Queensland

Stepping out of our passenger lounge at Archerfield Airport, you'll feel the excitement as your helicopter is waiting for you on the tarmac. Your Pilot will guide you into your private aircraft, and you'll immediately notice the leather seats and noise-reducing headphones that promise a comfortable flight.

As your helicopter lifts off, Archerfield Airport will quickly shrink beneath you as flying experience begins towards the first point of interest, Mt Gravatt. From the air, it's clear how big this ancient volcanic peak really is and as you pass around the summit, you may notice beautiful views of the Gold Coast skyline in the distance.

Your helicopter will then bank towards the University of Queensland campus in St Lucia. The sprawling campus dates back to 1909 with its distinct sandstone buildings. As you weave overhead the Brisbane River, your next landmark is Brisbane's iconic Story Bridge. This steel cantilever bridge is a central part of the city's identity one of only three bridges in Australia that people can climb.

Next, fly over the Gabba (Brisbane Cricket Ground) and Suncorp Stadium where, on a game day, you might be lucky enough to snap a photo of a 52,500 strong crowd enjoying a cricket match or Aussie Rules game.

You'll then fly past the summit of Mt Coot-tha, the tallest peak in the city. From here you can expect panoramic views of Brisbane City and, on a clear day, Moreton Bay and Tamborina Mountain in the distance.

Finally, you'll fly over Kangaroo Point Cliffs, a popular spot for rock climbing and abseiling. The cliffs glow a warm golden hue in the setting sun, a perfect end to a breathtaking flight.

As the helicopter touches down back at Archerfield Airport, the only question will be... Would you like to fly to the Gold Coast or Sirromet Winery next?
