After pulling up to Peats Bite's own seaplane dock, sit back and enjoy the food, wine and live music. It is not uncommon for diners to have a between course dip in the pool or sit out on the lawn with coffee and dessert looking over the vista that is the Hawkesbury. The seaplane flight to and from Peats Bite offers an excellent insight into life on the Hawkesbury River, and our aircraft glides over many oyster leases and 'lifestyle' holiday homes dotting the beautiful islands. The contrast could not be more dramatic as we complete the day with a circuit of central Sydney and her two centrepieces - the Harbour Bridge and Opera House.

Peats Bite is an exclusive water access only property an hour north of Sydney situated at Sunny Corner on the beautiful Hawkesbury River.

With deep water frontage our pontoon is suitable for private vessels alternatively we offer transfers from Brooklyn, which is just a 15 minute trip.
