Looking to add that extra ‘wow’ factor to your trip? Take Sydney by Seaplane, soaring above the Harbour City’s most iconic landmarks while taking luxe travel to new heights.
Departing from Rose Bay, embark on a 15 minute sky-high adventure with birds eye panoramas across Bondi Beach, Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge and beyond. Spectacular in every sense of the word, explore the coastline from high above with the experience of a lifetime. While the 15 minute scenic flight takes you straight back to Rose Bay, Sydney Seaplanes offers a host of extras to make sure your day really makes a splash.
Take Fly & Dine for an example, what better way to finish up a flight over sparkling waters and pristine white sands than to touch down waterside for a lush meal in one of Sydney’s most buzzed about fine dining spots. A popular spot for anniversaries, birthdays and proposals alike, we’re calling out Jonah’s as our top pick for leisurely lunches post flight.
Crowned by Sydney Seaplanes as the route most travelled, the morning flight to Jonah’s takes passengers along the Northern Beaches coastal stretch, to Palm Beach, landing on Whale Beach just in time for lunch. There, passengers perch on the edge of a cliff, soaking in immersive views of the Pacific Ocean while enjoying a three-course lunch at Jonah’s. With 180 degree views, this lunch comes with more than a side of Sydney’s beauty.
Post-lunch Sydney Seaplanes takes you on an afternoon circuit tour across Sydney Harbour before landing back in Rose Bay. Wanting to add a little more sparkle to your afternoon? Book in for the deluxe lunch, which includes four-courses with matching wines paired by Jonah's Head Sommelier Luke Collard. Jonah’s ocean retreat offers overnight accommodation if you’d like to linger in luxury a little longer, or if an afternoon spent having flutes of sparkling topped up leaves you needing to lay your head down for the night.
If the above hasn’t enticed you, number one what will it take, and number two their Fly & Tour packages are bound to do the trick with additions to original packages that really push the boat out (…or plane up). Utterly extravagant and oozing with luxury (so naturally we love it), the packages offer an extra wow-factor with region based activities featuring sailing, golf and more. Take a 35 minute plane trip to the beautiful Hunter region, landing for 18 holes of golf at a course of your choice with lunch included. Insider Tip: What better time to visit Hunter Valley than during June’s Wine & Food Festival. Spectacular festival events include the Lovedale Long Lunch, Cheese Matching experiences, vineyard tours or a cheeky wine tasting. Told you our number two would tempt you…
Must jet off – we have a plane to catch!
