Enjoy a half day Scenic Flight and Speed Boat Trip to enjoy Tasmania's South West World Heritage National Park. There are no roads, no people. See spectacular scenery from mountain ranges to the stunning coastline and cruise Bathurst Harbour to see its 800m mountains rising from the sea!
This tour commences with a scenic flight in a light aircraft over the city of Hobart and the Huon Valley before entering the South West World Heritage area. The flight path takes you past Federation Peak and the Western Arthur Range before landing at Melaleuca, deep in the heart of South West Tasmania. During your time in this wilderness area, we will take you in a speed boat to the marine reserve of Bathurst Harbour, a waterway bigger than Sydney Harbour.
You will witness the majesty of this pristine and wild place and breathe some of the cleanest air in the world. There is also an opportunity to see the rare and endangered Orange Bellied Parrots and visit the home and garden of South West legend the late Deny King. Your return flight is via the rugged South coast with its many isolated beaches and bays with rainforest and mountain ranges spilling into the Great Southern Ocean. Your flight home will also allow you to see Precipitous Bluff, the Ironbound Range and the most Southern Point in Australia, South East Cape, before flying past Bruny Island and back to Hobart.
There will be a maximum of 20 people doing this experience.
In the case of poor weather, we will endeavour to reschedule the experience for a later date. Bookings should be made allowing time to reschedule if necessary. If traveling from interstate, we recommend booking early into your stay in Hobart.
Please wear warm clothing and bring a rain jacket.
Light refreshments are served during the day.
Depending on the size of the group, the aircraft will be either a 9, 5 or 3 seater light airplane. For larger groups, we can use all 3 aircraft. The cruise takes place on a speed boat.
