What You Can Expect

Lunch at Cottage Point Inn by Seaplane from Sydney

Lunch at Cottage Point Inn by Seaplane from Sydney

Make your own way to Rose Bay where you meet your expert pilot and board your seaplane. Radio headsets are provided for your flight so that you can enjoy 2-way communications with your pilot while in the air.

Your pilot guides the seaplane out on the water and up into the sky as you take in views of the eastern suburbs of Sydney. Head 20 minutes north to reach Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, a beautiful stretch of wilderness with mangrove forests and sparkling rivers. After a smooth landing on the river, your pilot pulls up to the restaurant’s dock. Disembark from the seaplane and be welcomed by the restaurant staff.

Enjoy a relaxed fine dining experience during your three-course a la carte meal that features modern Australian cuisine made with seasonal ingredients including fresh seafood, meats and vegetables. A selection of fine Australian wines or other drinks can be purchased at your own expense.

Admire the tranquility of the natural beauty all around you at Cottage Point Inn. Situated on the water’s edge at the tip of two waterways that are flanked by forested hills, the inn originally served as the local community’s boat house, general store and post office. The site was transformed into a restaurant in the 1970s when more visitors began arriving in the area.

When you have finished your meal, your pilot takes you back to Rose Bay on a route that allows for fantastic photo ops of iconic sights including Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House. Your seaplane tour ends with return to the Rose Bay after approximately four hours.

This tour could not have been more Amazing !!!
Not only is it the most wonderful way to view Sydney and it's surrounding beaches and suburbs - such fun spotting known landmarks from the air - but the lunch at Cottage Point was gastronomic, with the estuary-side setting divine !!!

The experience of flying over Sydney and flying to the Cottage Point Inn in a sea plane was a great experience. The choice of entries on the menu was great and the food was prepared to perfection. We would highly recommend this tour. The only downside was the confirmation received from Viator got lost for the time we selected and we were delayed one hour. The plane was also late by 15 minutes or so. As a result we missed the ferry back to downtown Sidney. We tried to take a bus back, but because it was a busy Sunday, the buses would not stop because they were full even though passengers were getting off at the back door. An expensive cab ride was the best solution to downtown Sidney.

Nice terminal at Rose Bay and interesting seeing the history of the flying boats from Rose Bay. We were lucky with the weather and smooth interesting flight to Cottage Point. The pilot gave us some informative commentary on the way. Lunch at Cottage Point was superb and the setting is magical. This is one unique activity for a special occasion. Flight back saw us fly over Sydney Harbour and good views of the Harbour Bridge and Opera House. My wife enjoyed sitting up front with the pilot and had best view of the return journey. Highly recommend this trip.
