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 lunch 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.

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.

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 😁)

    A must experience.

    Our pilot was super friendly and definitely settled the little nerves I had.
    The flight was super fun and the views were amazing. And the lunch spot of the Meletos was beautiful as always.
    Definitely recommend the experience!

    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!

    Absolutely Amazing

    Both trips were amazing and magical, Thank you, memories will be treasured forever.

    Kate S. (Victoria, Australia)
    Relaxed flight to a beautiful winery

    We booked a helicopter flight to Stones of the Yarra Valley and it was an incredible experience. From the moment we stepped into the helicopter we felt at ease. The flight to the Yarra Valley was both stunning and relaxing. Stones was a beautiful winery and the three course menu was delicious. 10/10. Will be coming again on our next anniversary, or hopefully sooner! Thank you Rotor One for the incredible experience.
