Fly over Sydney's renowned Northern Beaches, including Manly, Dee Why, Newport, and Palm Beach until your pilot gently touches down in the expansive waterways of Pittwater. Jonah's courtesy vehicle meets you at the dock and takes you to the restaurant just a short distance away.
Located in a pristine site on the clifftop overlooking Whale Beach, Jonah's has become a Sydney institution with celebrity visitors that include Laurence Olivier, Mick Jagger, Jerry Hall, and Anthony Hopkins. The chefs serve contemporary Australian cuisine made with a variety of fresh seasonal produce, meats, and seafood. Australian wines or other drinks are available for purchase, with an extensive wine list providing an excellent selection.
When you have finished your gourmet 3-course meal, return to your seaplane and travel with your pilot back to Rose Bay. Your return route takes you over iconic sights such as Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge, among other top attractions around Sydney Harbour. Your tour ends upon your return to Rose Bay.
