Fun and adventure


Take a seaplane to Palm Beach

For a special treat, step on board one of Sydney Seaplanes' aircraft at Rose Bay, in Sydney Harbour, and soar above the city and see the Northern Beaches coastline and the blue, blue sea. You can fly to Palm Beach and the Hawkesbury River for gourmet dining or to a secluded beach for a picnic lunch.

For thrillseekers

To kick off your adventure, mix water and speed for an exhilarating experience on Sydney Harbour aboard a jet boat with operators such as Thunder Jet, Oz Jet Boating, Harbour Jet and Sydney Jet. Sailing on one of the most beautiful natural harbours in the world will raise your heart beat, too.

Indulge your inner pilot and land a Boeing 737 in a flight simulator. You can take to the skies in a Flight Experience simulator in Darling Harbour, near the city centre, or with 737Jet in Penrith, in Sydney’s west, which is home to a wonderland of adrenalin-pumping attractions.
