Seaplane is undoubtedly one of the best things to do in Sydney. Sydney looks sexy from the ground, but from the air she’s a goddess. Scenic flights take in the best of the city’s harbours, beaches and sights from the harbour to Manly and all the way up to the iconic Palm Beach peninsula – where Australia’s favourite soap, Home & Away, is filmed. If you want to skip pesky traffic and arrive like a rock star, the company arranges fly-and-dine deals – ideal if you’re lunching at Jonah’s in Whale Beach. Flights start at $175 per person.
