Come Fly with Me Sydney Seaplanes

Australia’s premier flying experience, marks a milestone

Celebration is in the air as October 2017 marks the first anniversary of Sydney Seaplanes Rose Bay Terminal. Featuring a luxurious lounge, a waterside oyster and cocktail bar, and a discreet VIP room, the terminal has become a hip harbourside destination for Sydneysiders and visitors alike in the past 12 months.

25,000 people fly with Sydney Seaplanes a year making it the largest seaplane operator in Australia, with 75% of those being local residents falling in love with their home from a new height. The exclusive experience takes in some of Australia’s most awe inspiring views from the Opera House, the Harbour Bridge and the city’s pristine beaches including Bondi and Manly.

The terminal also acts as a gateway to some of Sydney’s most premium dining experiences including Cottage Point Inn, Jonah’s at Whale Beach and bespoke picnic options at some of Sydney most secluded beaches.

The site was originally home to Australia’s first international airport for flying boats in 1939. The project was planned to be used as way to move mail within the British Empire, but quickly evolved into a luxurious way to travel. The original journey from Sydney to London, took ten days and required thirty refueling stops along what became famous as the ‘Kangaroo’ route. A return fare exceeds the average annual wage therefore no expense was spared. Passengers could enjoy a smoke whilst playing a game of mini golf, dine in the silver service restaurant or rest in the Orient Express style sleeping cabin.

Today’s visitors can find out more about the Golden Age of Flight through the terminal’s purpose built flying boat museum.

Sydney Seaplanes flights take off daily from the Rose Bay Terminal.
