Gourmet Lunch at Jonah's by Seaplane from Sydney

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.

  • Gourmet three-course lunch at the prestigious Jonah's Palm Beach Restaurant with 180 degree views of the Pacific Ocean
  • Aerial photo opportunities of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House and Sydney's Northern Beaches

What an amazing experience! This was a present to my dad for his 70th and it was perfect. Even though we are both Sydney-ites, the view during the whole flight had us awe-struck and amazed. The food was well-presented and tasted delicious. There is nothing I can fault. The highlight for my dad was being able to fly up front with the pilot. Thank you for a wonderful day.

4 star rating: Recommended October 2008

It was really nice but too short. It could be better with more time for the coffee outside the restaurant or for a walk on the beach.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better March 2008

The problem was that the weather was so bad we had to wait for ninety minutes before the decision was made to go. The meal location was superb, but then we got stranded, as weather was too bad to fly back. We had to wait a further two hours for a car to drive us back and still got charged for the full amount. The pilots were really sorry, but it turned out to be a very long, expensive day. They should have not taken us up.
