Make the New Year Exciting…and Delicious

Hard to believe, but 2018 is well and truly on the way out – and all of us are working out our new year’s resolutions.

If you have resolved to add a little more adventure to spice up the new year and perhaps the occasional taste of the finer things in life, Pterodactyl Helicopters has just the thing to get 2019 off to a great start.
This January, set a day aside to treat yourself and a special someone to a day out neither of you will forget in a hurry – a tour of the Southern Highlands in a chartered helicopter.

The Southern Highlands Vineyard Helicopter Tour in the most recent addition to our exciting repertoire and it has proven nothing short of spectacular.

This exciting – and tasty – adventure takes you from Sydney to the beautiful Bendooley Estate, a boutique vineyard nestled in the lush scenery of the Southern Highlands.

This is truly an outing that will make you feel like a super star; for a start, there is nothing quite like leaving the Bankstown aerodrome in a private helicopter.
As you set off for a day of indulging in fine wine and gourmet foods, just lean back and enjoy the outstanding vistas afforded when seeing Sydney from above, before taking in the breathtaking natural beauty of the Southern Highlands.
Pterodactyl Helicopters’ pilots know this area inside out and will make sure you won’t miss out on the choicest views during your flight.

We know, it’s often said that the journey is more important than the destination – especially when the journey is undertaken in a Robinson R44 Raven – however, in the case of our vineyard tours, the destination itself is pretty special as well.

Bendooley Estate is a particularly beautiful vineyard, you will feel the stresses of fast-paced city life melting away as you see it unfold below you; so by the time you sit down to taste some of the best wines the region has to offer, you should not have a care in the world.

Our Southern Highlands Vineyard Helicopter Tour includes not only a wine tasting, of course there will be a delicious lunch to go with it. Locally farmed produce, prepared to perfection, the spread put on by Bendooley Estate’s culinary creative spirits leaves nothing to be desired.

Once you have wined and dined (or lunched) and taken a leisurely stroll through rolling green hills, it is time to get back into the chopper and enjoy the journey home – you will be astonished how the changes in light impact the view of the scenery as the day passes.

Pterodactyl Helicopters’ wine tours include transfer from your hotel to the Bankstown aerodrome, are designed for up to three passengers and can be scheduled to depart at the time most convenient for you. The tour takes approximately five hours, including about 90 minutes in the air, so there is no need to make other plans for this special day.


If you would like to start 2019 with the outing to end all outings, contact our friendly staff today to secure a booking – we look forward to flying with you in the New Year.
