Sydney seaplanes offers several indulgent packages whether you are looking for a long lazy lunch, or a weekend getaway for a special occasion. Here are some ideas….

Petes Bite

If you want to do something special, then head to the legendary Peats Bite – the perfect place for a relaxed & lazy lunch. Just 25 minutes from Sydney the flight offers amazing views of the beautiful Hawkesbury River and lands in front of the restaurant only to pull up on its private jetty.

Peats Bite has been open since 1982 and is a divine secret dining experience situated on the Hawkesbury River and only accessible by boat or seaplane. The restaurant provides live music and allows their patrons to wonder around the property giving a relaxed laid-back approach, and makes you feel like you’re at someone’s lavish backyard with amazing water views.

For a lunch to remember, gather your nearest and dearest for a seaplane adventure to Jonah’s Whale Beach. Sensational views, fine dining, luxury accommodation and Australia’s best wine list (just one of Jonah’s many accolades) to make Jonah’s one of Australia’s most prestigious ocean retreats.
