Sydney Scenic Flight by Seaplane

See Sydney from the air aboard a historic Sydney seaplane. Enjoy the spectacular views from the Sydney Harbour Bridge to Bondi Beach on a 15 minute scenic seaplane flight. Your flight takes off and lands at Rose Bay on Sydney Harbour, five miles (eight kilometers) from the Sydney city center. You have the option to include lunch at Catalinas, one of Sydney's best harbor side restaurants.
  • Get an aerial perspective on Sydney’s top sights, harbor, Bondi, and more
  • Experience seaplane aviation, part of Australia's history since the 1930s
  • See more territory in a short time than you would on a bus or other tour
  • Enjoy the option to include an elegant lunch with wine after the flight
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.
