There’s nothing like a seaplane to see Australia’s endless stretch of coastline. And while seaplanes and flying boats feature throughout Australian aviation history, they’re enjoying a resurgence thanks to their ability to offer intimate, personal travel experiences. The planes’ compact size not only allows them to take off and land in destinations off-limits to larger aircraft, but ensures low passenger numbers on each flight. Here you’ll find some of the best new operators as well as the country’s newly opened seaplane terminal on Sydney Harbour. Grab your camera and hop aboard.
