Gourmet Lunch at Jonah's by Seaplane from Sydney

Select Date and Travellers
US$ 402.87
2 travellers
Jonah's is set upon the clifftop overlooking Whale Beach, truly one of Sydney's most spectacular outlooks. Fly over Sydney's famous Northern Beaches, including Manly, Dee Why Newport and on to Palm Beach on the return flight you will soak up the sights of Sydney Harbour.

Perched high on the edge of a cliff, enjoying dramatic views of Whale Beach and the sprawling Pacific Ocean, Jonah's at Palm Beach is one of Australia's most prestigious ocean retreats. Something of a Sydney institution, Jonah's salubrious guest list has included Laurence Olivier, Anthony Hopkins, Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall.

Departing Sydney Harbour late morning your seaplane flight tracks north past Sydney's spectacular northern beaches before touching down in the expansive waterway of Pittwater. Jonah's courtesy vehicle will meet you at the dock and transfer you the short distance to the restaurant.
  • Private, round-trip seaplane flight from Sydney’s Rose Bay
  • Gourmet 3-course lunch at Jonah’s award-winning restaurant 
  • Unique, up-high views of iconic Sydney sights away from the crowds
  • Panoramic aerial photo opportunities and expert commentary
What to Expect
Meet your pilot in Rose Bay. After a safety briefing, board your private seaplane and then glide up into the air over the sparkling Pacific Ocean. Fly over Sydney’s Northern Beaches, passing Manly, Dee Why, Newport, and Palm Beach before touching down in Pittwater, where a courtesy vehicle from Jonah’s greets you and takes you to the restaurant for a divine 3-course lunch. Settle into your table with 180-degree ocean views overlooking Whale Beach, and then choose from a variety of gourmet dishes prepared with local, seasonal produce, meat, and seafood. Enjoy wine from Jonah’s impressive list at your own expense. After lunch, board the seaplane for your return trip and views of more of the city’s major sights. Avoid the lines and crowds below as you pass over the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge before ending your tour back in Rose Bay.
