Helicopter Ride to Meletos Restaurant & The Stones of the Yarra Valley

Overview - Winery Lunch at Meletos Restaurant

The Meletos restaurant is a short 25 minute helicopter ride from Melbourne. With a rich history in the Yarra Valley dating back to the 1800s, the Meletos and Stones farmhouses were once used as sleeping quarters for stable hands but have since been transformed into one of the best winery lunch experiences in the region.

With uninterrupted views of the Great Dividing Range, Meletos restaurant (also known as Meletos Café) is a beautiful tuscan-inspired restaurant set against the backdrop of apple orchards and aged oak trees. With an outstanding reputation for fresh seasonal dishes, curated wines and flawless service, bookings for Meletos are as highly sought after as their restaurant menu, especially on weekends.

When arriving by helicopter from Melbourne your flight lands directly at Meletos winery, just a few steps away from the rear entrance to Meletos restaurant.

After your private landing, you'll be seated at your table for a delicious three course lunch menu with rich seafood, meat, vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options, along with a glass of wine (we'd recommend a No.7 Healesville blend) or beer (brewed on-site at the Meletos Brewhouse).

If you prefer to be a little more spontaneous, Meletos also offers walk-in options for the Meletos Garden, a beautiful outdoor restaurant with bar and rotisserie, and the Meletos Brewhouse, a boutique brewery and restaurant with a delicious food menu and fine ales on tap.

The Meletos Restaurant makes the perfect romantic getaway to the Yarra Valley by helicopter.

What is the minimum age requirement for children?

Children aged 3 years and older can fly. 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 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 to another day/time or provide a full refund.

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, especially in Melbourne! We use live weather data on the day of your flight to determine if flights can be conducted safely. We'll contact you at least 2 hours prior to your flight if bad weather could delay your flight.

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.

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.

Can I bring any luggage?

Handbags, small backpacks or duffel bags weighing less than 10kg and less than 60cm in length can be carried. Its essential all baggage is soft and compact as it must fit in a small baggage compartment under your seat. We're not able to carry any rigid suitcases or airplane carry-on size rolling luggage.

Can I fly if I'm in a wheelchair?

Yes, our hangar is wheelchair-accessible and we warmly welcome passengers with special needs. Our team will gladly assist in lifting any passengers into the aircraft for their flight.

Perfect start to our summer holidays

Our experience with Rotor One was flawless. Our pilot Ed made the experience incredibly enjoyable! The helicopter ride took us over the Yarra Valley to Meletos winery. We had incredibly views and arrived 20 metres from the restaurant like rockstars!
