Cloud 9 Seaplanes

Climb above the coast in a seaplane to enjoy sweeping views of the coastline and lush green hinterland. Your pilot will land at a private seaside spot where you can enjoy a bottle of bubbles and gourmet seafood platter in your own little piece of paradise, before enjoying more stunning views of islands and mountains as you fly back to reality.

Sirromet Wines

Book a private vineyard tour and tasting of Sirromet’s most highly awarded wines at its Mt Cotton site. Then let your chauffeur take you back to the coast for an afternoon of lazing. Poolside, seaside or harbourside – take your pick.

Rick Shores

Head south for a sunset beachside stroll then on to Rick Shores restaurant, a Burleigh Heads favourite, for a delicious Asian dining experience. Relax over a cocktail while the waves lap at the sand and the last surfers head into shore. The star of the show is the panoramic view.
