Overview
See Sydney from a unique perspective on a 15-minute scenic flight by seaplane. Take off from Rose Bay and soar over landmarks such as the Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge, and Bondi Beach in a restored seaplane—an ideal way to see the city, especially if you have limited time or mobility. For a truly memorable experience, upgrade for lunch at an elegant waterside restaurant that overlooks Sydney Harbour.
What to Expect
Make your own way to Rose Bay, where you meet your pilot and board the seaplane. As you lift off, see lovely sandstone cliffs and the vast Pacific Ocean before flying over Bondi Beach and surfers catching waves. 
Turn over Sydney Harbour and ascend to 1,000 feet (305 meters) for an overview of the city, then fly over landmarks including Fort Denison, Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House, and the Royal Botanic Garden. Gaze down upon the waterfront mansions along Rose Bay before your pilot gently lands on the water—an exciting experience in itself—to end your seaplane tour.
If you choose the lunch upgrade, you’ll go to Catalina Restaurant in Rose Bay for a 3-course lunch, choosing from a menu featuring fresh seafood and Australian wine. From the open-air patio or dining room, take in unobstructed views of Sydney Harbour as you enjoy your meal.
