Seaplane Lunch, Hawkesbury River


Travelling from Rose Bay in Sydney Harbour, arrive in style at the very popular and charming Cottage Point Inn restaurant. Cottage Point Inn is situated on a broad reach of the Hawkesbury River, surrounded by the peaceful Australian bushland of the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park. 

The flight northwards departs Sydney Harbour through the stunning Heads and follows the famous Northern Beaches (Manly, Freshwater, Curl Curl, Dee Why, Long Reef, Collaroy, Narrabeen, Warriewood, Mona Vale, Newport) to the southern end of Pittwater. From here the flight tracks in a westerly direction over the high ground of the National Park to enter the Hawkesbury River for a spectacular arrival on the river.
The Cottage Point Inn is open 7 days for lunch and their philosophy is to provide honest, modern Australian style cuisine served in a professional, welcoming atmosphere. Step from the seaplane on to the restaurant’s private dock to be warmly greeted by the Inn’s friendly staff.
Our seaplane operator will make the table reservation for you. Flights usually commence late morning, early afternoon and depart from the restaurant about three and a half hours later. The whole experience will take just over 4 hours.

(This lunch package includes return scenic flights and your three-course a la carte lunch. Does not include beverages though)
