Let’s Do Lunch
You may think that taking a person – any person: your new squeeze, your dearly beloved of decades, your mum, you uncle Steven – out for lunch is something of a cop-out; proof that you didn’t really put much thought into the occasion. To this, Pterodactyl Helicopters says: Ha!
You see, there is doing lunch and then there is doing lunch in style, in a truly beautiful location and (drumroll) in a helicopter.
Our Sydney Southern Highlands Helicopter Wine Tour (or the win tour as we pretend to affectionately call it when we try to cover up a typo) is the perfect day out to show someone you really care about them…and also about lunch. This spectacular package combines the thrills of riding high in a private aircraft with the delights of gourmet food and fine wines – there is literally nothing not to be liked.
En route to your luxury lunch experience, you can look forward to enjoying a birds-eye perspective of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and our incomparable Opera House, taking in Cronulla beach from up high before heading deep into the beautiful Southern Highlands. To watch the urban sprawl give way to lush greenery is surreal and enchanting at once.
The flight to your lunch location takes around an hour, so you are really in for one spectacular aviation adventure. There is nothing quite like looking forward to a good meal in excellent company while the world zooms past below – it’s a feeling that tends to linger for a long time.
The destination of our Sydney Southern Highlands Helicopter Vineyard Tour is scenic Bendooley Estate, a boutique winery and restaurant nestled into the rolling hills, sure to knock the socks of all your senses.
Pterodactyl Helicopters allow for around three hours on location, so you will have time to stroll through the vineyard and take in the serenity (say it with us: “How’s the serenity?”) and take a moment to detox from busy city living.
Our package includes a three-course gourmet lunch, featuring locally grown produce only; a bottle of Bendooley Estate house wine and a cellar door wine tasting, just to make sure you get a good idea of just why this wonderful place is being heralded as one of the finest vineyards of the region.
Your return flight, approximately 40 minutes in the air, will take you a different way, along a more rustic scenic route allowing you to check out some gorgeous country towns from above.
Depending on our time of return, you might even get a chance to revel in the shining lights of the Sydney skyline as dusk falls – a truly breathtaking view to behold from up high.
Our pilots know the area inside and out and will make sure you don’t miss any of the highlights along the way.
So yes, folks, lunch does not necessarily equal lame, if we may be so frank.
If you would like to put the excitement back into your mid-day meal, contact Pterodactyl Helicopters today for all necessary arrangements. We look forward to flying with you soon.
