Things to do in Palm Beach Sydney:
Less than 20 minutes flying time in the seaplane from Rose Bay in Sydney Harbour is beautiful Palm Beach. Arrive in style at our private seaplane base at Barrenjoey, Palm Beach after the fabulously-scenic flight experience from Rose Bay following the Northern Beaches and headlands to Pittwater.
Things to enjoy include a choice of outstanding cafes and restaurants, a walk to the top of Barrenjoey Headland and its historic lighthouse, a dip at one of the world’s great surfing beaches and the tranquillity of magnificent Pittwater or just stroll on the beaches here at “Summer Bay”. (Stop-over time is usually 3 hours. Longer stays are sometimes available – please call to discuss options.)
The historic Barrenjoey Lighthouse is a 20 to 30 minute walk (each way) from our base offering spectacular views to the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park and Broken Bay, the Central Coast and the dramatic coastline of Sydney’s north. Lighthouse tours are conducted on Sundays – weather permitting. Walking shoes are recommended and perhaps a bottle of water also.
Barrenjoey Boat Hire shares our facility here at the northern end of Pittwater. You can hire a paddle board, kayak, party boat or tinny for a few hours to take a tour around Pittwater. Fishing gear can be hired and they also sell cold drinks and bait.
Your flight back to Rose Bay concludes with a double orbit at the Opera House and Harbour Bridge – the culmination of a relaxing, fun-filled day in the most beautiful, unspoilt setting in Sydney.
Suggestions for lunch or brunch:
The Boathouse Palm Beach
Arrive in style in the seaplane to enjoy the ambience of the extremely popular (licensed) The Boathouse Palm Beach which is located on the waterside at our private Seaplane Base at Barrenjoey. Relax on the original boatshed deck overlooking Pittwater. Take a seat on one of the picnic tables on the wharf which is suspended over Station Beach, or simply grab a spot on the front lawn. The water views are breathtaking from every direction. Enjoy flavoursome meals created by the Boathouse chefs using the freshest local produce and seafood. The Beer Battered Flathead + Chips are the best on the Northern Beaches! The Boathouse does not take reservations.
Other Dining Locations in Palm Beach Sydney
Dunes restaurant is a 5 minute walk from our base, offering a relaxed beach side atmosphere where you can sit down to a fabulous three course meal, or just a snack at their kiosk. (More details in the Fly and Dine Section of this Website.)
