Helicopter Wine Tour to Jack Rabbit Winery - A Fine-Dining Lunch Experience on the Bellarine Peninsula

Overview - Winery Lunch at Jack Rabbit on the Bellarine

Sitting atop the Bellarine Peninsula with panoramic views of Melbourne and Geelong, Jack Rabbit has received multiple food, winery and tourism awards recognising their fine-dining and lunch menu at the House of Jack Rabbit Restaurant and the cool-climate wines picked directly from their vineyard making Jack Rabbit the perfect location to escape for a helicopter wine tour on the Bellarine Peninsula.

Jack Rabbit Winery is just a 35 minute scenic flight by helicopter from Melbourne where you’ll enjoy spectacular views of Melbourne CBD, Avalon International Airport, the You Yangs mountain range and the City of Geelong before arriving for a private landing at the dedicated helipad nestled amongst the vineyard at Jack Rabbit.

Take a short stroll through the vineyard before arriving at Jack Rabbit Restaurant for a three course, a la carte lunch that also affords stunning water views over Corio Bay and allows you to take in views of Geelong, the You Yangs and even the Melbourne City skyline on a clear day — This really is one of the best views you’ll get on a winery lunch in Victoria.

Your Winery Lunch Experience at Jack Rabbit Restaurant

The Jack Rabbit Restaurant run by Executive Chef, Dwayne Bourke, has created a “gastronomic showpiece” on the Bellarine Peninsula which matches award-winning Jack Rabbit wines to a fine-dining lunch menu including smoked kangaroo loin, confit duck leg, sweetcorn fondant and warm pear and ginger quinoa cake just to name a few of their stunning lunch dishes.

Sample Seasonal Menu

  • Course One: Duck leg & celeriac "cannelloni", sherry glaze, king brown mushroom, orange blossom cream, mustard greens, parmesan crisp (GF)
  • Course Two: Bellarine Beef eye fillet, swede, roast marrow butter, balsamic pearls, kale crisps, red wine jus (GF)
  • Course Three: Dark chocolate mousse cake, basil, strawberry salsa, elderflower 'meringue', strawberry & cardamom sorbet (VC, GF, DF)

Please note the menu is seasonal and subject to change. It’s also worth noting that Jack Rabbit has introduced a vegan menu to cater for guests looking for a vegan or gluten-free lunch menu.

Jack Rabbit Wines

Jack Rabbit is well known in Victoria for producing sophisticated cool-climate wines and to this point, Jack Rabbit Vineyard’s own winemaker, Nyall Condons, has been recognised as a rising star in the wine industry, receiving multiple awards for Jack Rabbit’s Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Rosé & Cabernet Shiraz wine varieties, all of which are available to be paired with your la carte lunch at Jack Rabbit Restaurant.

Your pickup point will either be Hangar 7 Wirraway Rd, Essendon Fields or the Essendon Passenger Terminal depending on your flight. Please refer to your booking confirmation email for your departure location. Both locations have off-street parking available.

When should I arrive?

Please arrive 10 minutes before your booking begins for a relaxed experience.

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 contact you at least 2 hours prior to your booking time to reschedule your flight. If your flight cannot go ahead due to bad weather and you wish to cancel, we'll provide a full refund minus any credit card processing fees we've paid on your behalf.

Google says there's will be bad weather on the day. Should I reschedule?

There's no need to contact us to reschedule based on a weather forecast as they're often inaccurate! We use live weather data on the day of your flight to determine if flights can be conducted safely.

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 130kg or a group of 2 or 3 guests weigh more than 240kg combined, please contact us prior to booking.

What is the minimum age requirement for children?

Children aged 2 years or older can occupy their own seat. Our pilots will give them special attention to ensure they have an amazing time. All children will have their own window seat and pay the same seat price (we don't offer discounts for children as we make sure they have even more fun than the adults 😁)

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 on cooler or windy days to keep your warm.

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, as long as a carer accompanies them on their flight. Please contact us if you have any questions.

Do you provide a wheelchair for disabled passengers?

We partner with Fisher Lane Mobility in Melbourne, which provides wheelchair rental as well as delivery and pickup services from our hangar. Wheelchairs can only be carried in larger aircraft suitable for 4 or more passengers as they include a cargo hold. Please contact FLM to confirm availability of a suitable wheelchair for your planned date of travel.


What happens if there's bad weather on the day of my flight?

  • We really want you to enjoy your experience, so we only fly when the weather allows a safe and comfortable flight. If there's bad weather (low cloud, heavy rain, high winds) on the day, we may need to delay or reschedule your flight. We’ll work with you to choose a new date, or allow you to reschedule at your convenience.

    Peter Caretti (Western Australia, Australia)
    Helicopter Wine Tour to Jack Rabbit Restaurant

    What a wonderful day! I couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable experience to surprise my partner with.
    Our pilot, Ed, was terrific. Very skilful and approachable, he took us on the perfect journey around Port Phillip Bay. We really got to a view of Melbourne's coast that can only be seen by air.
    Lunch at Jack Rabbit Winery with matching wines was delicious, and I can't think of a better way to drop into a winery lunch than by helicopter.
    Thanks Ed for a memorable day. We'll have to bring our little 4-year old on the next one, he'll love it!

    Helicopter to Jack Rabbit Winery

    Thanks to our pilot Ed for the wonderful friendly and professional service. An awesome way to spend a Sunday arvo helicoptering to Jack Rabbit Winery. Cheers

    Jack Rabbit Winery by Helicopter - Service was exceptional

    Took my girlfriend for a little birthday surprise! Service was exceptional, our pilot was super friendly and made sure we were comfortable the entire ride. We were taken to Jackrabbit Vineyard for lunch. Food and service there was also fantastic. Definitely will return!!!

    James Meehan (Victoria, Australia)
    Helicopter Wine Tour to Jack Rabbit Restaurant

    Seriously a 10/10 experience from start to finish! Couldn’t recommend a helicopter winery more highly!

    Lachlan Stevens

    A truely magical experience to have a bird’s eye view of Melbourne’s beautiful bay coastline and cityscape.
    Our pilot Ed was eloquent, gracious and informative as he flew us to Jack Rabbit winery.
    A superb destination for lunch, the wine and menu won’t disappoint, with outstanding views across the bay.
    Our pilot was particularly flexible and accommodating to our special requests which can only come from a unique business such as Rotor One.
