McLarens is our usual destination for our Stradbroke Island flights. It is a beautiful location with Sub Tropical features, natural Australian wildlife and offers a variety of activities to keep you busy. It also has a great atmosphere and serves delicious Australian barbequed food. So good in fact, if your looking for your pilot, you’ll find him eating there most days.
The Barbeque Buffet is $30pp for Steak, Chicken, Fish, Sausages, potato, salads, bread rolls and a variety of sauces. A small serve is $15 for Sausages and salad. A Vegetarian option is available.
Things to do at McLarens Landing include:
When you fly in with us to McLarens Landing you get the Cloud 9 VIP treatment. We offer the best seats available and you get premium service from the staff. It is all tailored to suit YOUR personality. That doesn’t always mean it’s 5 star. Maybe YOU require a FUN, HAPPY DAY that’s a little bit informal!!!
On weekends and holidays the Tipplers Licensed cafe is open. It has a great a la carte menu with a choice of steaks, fish and chips, hamburgers and many other delicious dishes. It has a bar, sometimes live music and outdoor dining as well. Tipplers is a short walk… 200 meters south of McLarens Landing.
We offer two different Romantic Picnic packages.
Our Deluxe Package is designed for special occasions (proposals, etc…) and is tailored specifically to your needs. The flight time is longer, the food is more plentiful and the surprise for your partner is fantastic. We plan it so she/he has no idea what’s going on and the results always turn out well. You also have a choice of locations and are guaranteed exclusive use of the Seaplane on the way out to the island. The cost is $445 per person.
Our Standard Picnic has a shorter flight to the island, not quite as much food, you may share the plane with another couple, but you will definitely, still have a great day. The cost is $345 per adult, $150 per child (2 -12yo).
Whatever picnic you choose you will have a magic day.
One thing we do promise, you will have a fantastic time and are in for a BIG surprise. It will be MUCH better than what you expect.

The Seaplane departs from Seaworld Resort Watersports beach.
The Seaworld Resort is 800 metres PAST the Seaworld Theme park.
Park your car in the resort car park and walk up to reception. Opposite reception there are glass sliding doors. Walk through the doors, down the steps and go down to the resort pool. You need to walk around the right hand side of the pool area OR go through the pool area to the far side then go through the gate to the water sports beach.
The water sports beach is on the Broadwater side of the main resort pool. It’s where the Jet skis operate from and where the jetty is.
Ask concierge at the front of the resort if you get lost.
I hope this helps and we see you soon.
