Harbour to Harbour with Sydney Seaplanes 

Cut your travel time between Sydney and Newcastle to just half an hour, with the very scenic and affordable Sydney Seaplanes option.

A drive along the F3 from Sydney to Newcastle can take a good two-and-half hours, give or take, depending on the time of day, peak-hour traffic and other factors. It’s not the world’s most tedious or unpleasant drive, but imagine cutting that travel time down to a breezy 30 minutes . . .

Since June 2008, Sydney Seaplanes, operating out of Rose Bay in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, has been busy providing an easier and more efficient way to get to and from two of Australia’s largest working harbours.

Now you can catch a Cessna Caravan C208 from the Sydney Seaplanes base at Lyne Park in Rose Bay, or the Lee Wharf at Newcastle, four times a day – with one-way prices starting at $99. The delightful and stylish aircraft is just under a year old and can carry up to nine passengers in air-conditioned comfort.

Sydney Seaplanes also does quick runs to the Hunter Valley – something AT has sampled and written about in the past. Click here for that story, or for more info and to make bookings, check out www.sydneyseaplanes.com.au
