  • Overview & Itinerary


    Lift off over Sydney harbour in a seaplane and fly north to Jonah’s Beach, one of Australia’s most exclusive ocean retreats.

    Since it first opened as a roadhouse in 1929, Jonah’s has put the prestigious enclave of Whale Beach on the international map. Famed for luxury, privacy and seclusion; Jonah’s counts Sir Lawrence Olivier, Sir Anthony Hopkins, Joan Collins, Mick Jagger, Jerry Hall, Bono, Rod Stewart, Justin Bieber and Lewis Hamilton as some of its guests.

    Enjoy a three-course gourmet lunch at Jonah’s famous restaurant. You will be offered contemporary Australian cuisine featuring exceptional Australian and international produce and an extensive wine list.

    As you treat your taste buds to Australia’s finest foods you will enjoy magnificent views over the expansive Pacific Ocean.

    To round off the experience you will have a delightful afternoon flight back to Rosebay including a Sydney harbour circuit in front of the Harbour Bridge and Opera House.
