Helicopter Ride to Clyde Park Winery

Overview - Winery Lunch at Clyde Park Vineyard

“The quality of Clyde Park wines is consistently exemplary.” - James Halliday, Wine Companion

With 5-Star rated wine, delicious cuisine and panoramic views of the Moorabool River, Clyde Park Winery is one of the best kept secrets for a superb cellar door and winery lunch experience outside Melbourne. Take a stunning 40 minute scenic helicopter flight from Melbourne into the rolling hills of Bannockburn, a quaint township in the Geelong wine region, then land at Clyde Park Winery.

Renowned for their Pinot Noir, Clyde Park Winery recently earned a 5-Star-Winery rating from the Halliday Wine Companion and their cellar door and wine tour experience reflects this quality in full. Choose a wine tour of their current release or premium single block wines across Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Shiraz, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris blends and find out why the special nature of grapes, valley and soil at Clyde Park Winery make it one of Victoria's best wine destinations.

Then enjoy a delicious winery lunch with French-inspired menu in the Barrel Room / Cellar Door or outdoor terrace overlooking the winery. Our favourites have to be the Roasted Lamb Ragu Gnocchi with burrata and Barramundi with Sauvignon Blanc risotto, however it's hard to go past Clyde Park's famous Peking Duck Wood-Fired Pizza made in their giant copper pizza oven.

    Where are you located?

    Rotor One is located at Hangar 7 Wirraway Rd, Essendon Fields and off-street parking is available next to our building. When you arrive look for the red door that says 'Melbourne Heli'.

    Do you depart from other locations, like the City Helipad?

    We depart from Essendon Airport as you have an amazing view of the Melbourne City skyline from the moment you step onto the tarmac. We can arrange helicopter pickups from regional airports including Lilydale, Coldstream, Barwon Heads, Torquay and others upon request. We unfortunately do not offer flights from the City Helipad on the Yarra River.

    When should I arrive?

    For a relaxed experience, please arrive 10 minutes before your booking begins.  

    Can bad weather prevent us from flying?

    Yes, adverse weather conditions such as low cloud, fog, heavy rain or high winds may require your flight to be delayed or rescheduled. If this is the case, your pilot will call or SMS you at least 2 hours prior to your flight.

    Google says it's going to rain. Should I reschedule?

    We will make a "Fly" or "No Fly" decision on the day of your flight. If bad weather is present on the day, we'll call or SMS you at least 2 hours prior to your booking.

    There's no need to contact us to reschedule based on Google or Apple's weather forecast. These forecasts often change on the day (especially in Melbourne!) and we monitor live weather data from the Bureau of Meteorology every day before we fly. 

    We'll do everything we can to get you flying on the day, wherever it is safe to do so

    Can I use my camera or phone during flight?

    Yes, we encourage you to take as many photos and videos on the ground, and in the air, as possible.

    What should I wear?

    Please bring a pair of sunglasses and you're welcome to wear clothing appropriate to the weather. We do recommend a wind-breaker jacket for any sunrise / doors-off flights and also when flying on our 12 Apostles tour as both experiences can be windy.

    Why do I need to provide my weight?

    We use this to calculate the weight and balance of the helicopter prior to flight. If you have any guests weighing over 120kg or a combined passenger weight of more than 240kg, please contact us prior to booking.

    Are there age restrictions for children?

    We only recommend flights for children over 4 years of age and every child must occupy their own seat and pay the full seat price.

    Do I need to be double vaccinated to fly?

    We encourage all our passengers to be double vaccinated to fly.

    Can I bring any luggage?

    Light handbags and small backpacks weighing less than 5kg can be carried. For any larger items please contact us prior to your flight.

    Can I fly if I'm pregnant?

    Yes, and we recommend flying prior to your third trimester.

    Can I fly if I'm in a wheelchair?

    Yes, our hangar is wheelchair-accessible and we warmly welcome passengers with special needs. Please contact us if you have any questions.

    What is your cancellation policy?

    If you're unable to fly with us due to a Covid restriction or isolation period, you can choose to reschedule your flight or receive a full refund.

    Breathtaking and unforgettable experience. I highly recommend Rotor One

    Incredible flight and the winery was excellent. I will never forgot the flight back over Melbourne. The scenary was epic over the cityscape! Our pilot, Ed was a pleasure in every way and he actually made our VIP experience so much better.

    There is a downside to this though, I don't think I'll ever be able to drive to a winery ever again..! Heli-wine is the future.

    My final thoughts - do it.! Treat yourself and I'm sure, like me, you won't regret a single thing.

    Thank you Rotor One...!

    Fantastic Ride out to a Winery

    Our Pilot Ed took us out for a fantastic afternoon trip to Clyde Park Estate for a great winery lunch. The helicopter ride was awesome and our winery lunch was fantastic. We arranged to arrive a bit later and had the place almost to ourselves. Our Pilot Ed was also a great host. Looking forward to going again.
