Our Gold Coast is a sight to behold from any angle! Arguably the best way to see the long, golden beaches and crystal clear water is from the air…and if you’re going to do that, you may as well do it in style!
ABC Heli, run by husband and wife duo Dan and Carly Egan, pride themselves on creating bespoke helicopter experiences for one and all. From bucks and hens parties to weddings, proposal flights and even brewery tours, they do it all. Dan has recently concocted a brand new tour, one that showcases the beauty of the southern Gold Coast and the northern rivers of the Tweed.
Starting at the Gold Coast Airport, you take off out of a private hanger bound for one of Dan’s secret spots on South Stradbroke Island. There, a beautifully prepared lunch is yours to enjoy — with a glass of bubbly, of course. It’s also the perfect opportunity to venture over the dunes for a quick dip, or even a fish.
After this, Dan flies over the winding Tweed River, to land (in rockstar fashion), on the front lawn of Husk Distillers in Tumbulgum. Husk Distillers is run by the Messenger family, who prides themselves on their paddock-to-still mentality. The property grows a healthy crop of sugarcane, which the Messenger family puts straight back into distilling a couple of batches of rather tasty rums.
You may also have heard the Husk name tossed in the same sentence as Ink Gin. The iconic, purplish-coloured spirit is the company’s pride and joy. It all started out as an idea that originated with the Butterfly Pea Flower. It’s this little flower that gives off the beautiful purple colour. It also provides a cool party trick! When an acid (like tonic) is added to the mix, it turns pink!
You can experience all this on one of ABC Heli‘s tours. In fact, Dan has a special deal for Great Day Out viewers.
One of ABC Heli’s luxury helicopters is exclusively yours as you experience a stunning scenic flight to South Stradbroke Island, where cold drinks and a private gourmet picnic awaits.
Lunch is followed by a breathtaking flight along the Tweed River to the newly opened Husk Distillers, where you can relax and taste test award-winning ink gin, spiced rum and other mouth-watering cocktails.
Great Day Out Special…$990 per person (pay for 2 seats have an additional 3 persons fly free)
