Cottage Point Inn offers a prime waterfront dining location on the Hawkesbury River where diners can land right in front of the restaurant by seaplane direct from Rose Bay. The restaurant is renowned for its relaxed, friendly atmosphere and fantastic modern Australian menus. Enjoy superb modern Australian cuisine on the deck while the water laps gently by, or among the cosy, converted boatshed interiors. The Cottage Point Inn was recently awarded 2 chef’s hats by the Sydney Morning Herald’s Good Food Guide.

Cottage Point Inn Seaplane Route:
Travelling from Rose Bay in Sydney Harbour, or from our private Seaplane Base at Palm Beach, arrive in style at the very popular and charming Cottage Point Inn restaurant situated on a broad reach of the Hawkesbury River, surrounded by the peaceful Australian bushland of the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park. (*If you fly from Palm Beach we travel down to the Opera House and Harbour Bridge before heading north to the Hawkesbury. At the end of the day we fly you directly to Palm Beach).
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.
Your flight back to Rose Bay with Sydney By Seaplane is equally spectacular and includes a double orbit in front of the Opera House and Harbour Bridge to top off a truly special day of flying and dining in this superb environment.
We also offer return flights for overnight stays and dinner at the Cottage Point Inn Apartments – please call Jenny for details/pricing.
