  • The Reef at Terrigal on the Central Coast

    Show

    This package is very much about the journey as well as the destination...

    Departing Sydney Airport we take off to the north, flying over the Harbour & spectacular Northern Beaches we track towards Broken Bay and the Central Coast. On landing at Erina, the Reef's private transfer vehicle will be waiting for the brief drive to the restaurant at Terrigal.

    Seafood is the star of the show here. The menu is clever without being showy - it is innovative, whilst still maintaining accessibility and simplicity. Dishes such as the salt and pepper squid and local black mussels in Provencal sauce are excellent examples of this.

    The Reef Restaurant is what everyone looks for in a venue - spectacular views, great service, sublime food and a relaxed atmosphere...

    (Pilot's note: Good all round venue/ Ideal romantic escape with top shelf food & service! Restaurant has also won many awards for excellence. This is the most popular Fly & Dine of the 4 packages).
  • Echoes in the Blue Mountains

    Show
    Located in the magnificent World Heritage status Blue Mountains, experience Echoes... Where wilderness meets true luxury.

    Encompassing a 40 minute flight (each way) you'll be in awe of the rugged wilderness and magnificent views as we fly you from Sydney (via the Harbour) into the heart of the Blue Mountains for a lunch that you'll never forget...

    Echoes' Restaurant and chic bar is perched at the absolute edge of the World Heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park, with views of mountains, cliff edges and lush rainforest valleys right through the Jamison Valley to Mittagong, 80 kilometres away..   

    Echoes base their food on a modern concept, reflective of Australia's international influences. Only the freshest local produce is infused with an international palate of flavours and spices. The menu is complemented by a careful selection of high quality boutique Australian wines.

    The dining area truly is divine with an opulent, yet warm and inviting ambience. Featuring bare stone walls, open fire places, upholstery of dark rich fabrics, gilt framed mirrors and gloriously well spaced tables draped with crisp, quality linen.

    Echoes Restaurant has set a new benchmark for style and excellence among Blue Mountains restaurants. Luxurious, dramatic, light-filled and spacious, the dining room and terrace is decked out with bi-folds, manhattan lighting and glass, so that our breathtaking views remain uninterrupted.

    To complete the ultimate dining experience, Echoes' bar, suspended over the reception foyer sets a stunning atmosphere where breathtaking views dominates and cosmopolitan style meet. Echoes' bar caters for pre-dinner drinks and for those more inclined to gossip over a designer-martini or a glass of vintage champagne.
  • Southern Highlands Wines

    Show

    Departing Sydney Airport, we fly south over Cronulla... Passing The Royal National Park, we continue to track South West towards Bowral in the Southern Highlands...

    Landing around 40 minutes after our departure, Southern Highlands Wines offers breathtaking views of the sprawling vineyards and is an ideal setting to enjoy a relaxed lunch in the country with amazing food and fine wine.

    On balmy summer days, the restaurant's doors open onto the spacious Australian veranda to provide a unique alfresco dining experience. In winter, the cosy and rustic appeal of the restaurant is enhanced by the enormous fireplace.

    The Southern Highlands has long been regarded as an area of great beauty and relaxation. Take a long, deep breath of the clean, crisp air and gaze across endless rolling green hills, sipping your favourite cool climate red and wondering why you didn’t escape to the Highlands sooner.

    Southern Highland Wines has created a winery that is fresh, modern and spacious, where you can experience award winning cool climate wines and mouth watering meals.

    Sample a selection of flavoursome wines, tour through the winery, learn about wine making, relax with a glass of wine and enjoy the tantalising selection of produce.
