Rose Bay was the site of Australia's first international airport. From 1938, flying boats, including the famous catalinas took off and landed from this Sydney harbor side suburb. Relive the nostalgia of the 1930s with a 15 minute scenic flight aboard an immaculately restored seaplane.

From Rose Bay, fly over Sydney from the harbor to the sea, where you will marvel at the stunning sandstone cliffs rising abruptly from the water. You'll then fly above the world-famous Bondi Beach, where your pilot will maneuver the aircraft so that all on board have great views of the scores of surfers waiting for the next big wave.

From Bondi head back to the harbor to climb to 1,000 feet (305 meters) for a truly stunning view of Sydney. You'll complete a circuit above the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House, for unforgettable photo opportunities of the two famous icons.

On your descent back to Rose Bay your pilot will point out the beautiful houses of the rich and famous that punctuate the waterfront, before gently landing on Sydney Harbour.

You then have the option to combine your Sydney scenic flight by seaplane an a la carte 3-course lunch at Catalina Restaurant.

Situated next to the Seaplane Base in Rose Bay, the award winning Catalina Restaurant is a wonderful space offering unobstructed water-level views of Sydney Harbour. Catalina Restaurant combines great food, unobtrusive but attentive service, outstanding Australian and imported wines, and a modern uncluttered space in an unparalleled location on Sydney Harbour.
