Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Take a flight in our Turbine powered Bell Jet rangers, AS350B3 Squirrel, AS355 Twin Squirrel or EC130 B4  Eurocopter.

    Enjoy a complimentary hotel pickup and transfer from your centrally located Hobart accommodation to our base at the airport. Before taking flight, take part in a short safety briefing. Then, you’ll be ready for your 60-minute scenic flight over the wild southern Tasmanian wilderness.

    As we fly around the tip of Tasman Island it is hard to miss the lighthouse perched on top, the highest operating lighthouse in Australia and marks the final turning point for yachts in the annual Sydney to Hobart yacht race. 

    The towering ancient dolerite cliffs (the highest in the Southern Hemisphere) and rock formations are awe-inspiring, you may even be able to spot seals sunning themselves on the rocks, or rock climbers scaling the cliffs. From here we can fly to Port Arthur or Cape Hauy, the last Cape on the three-cape track. View the exceptional rock formations of the Candlestick and Totem Pole, phenomenal large columns of dolerite rock sticking straight up and out of the ocean, a spectacular sight to see. 

    Port Arthur convict settlement is one of the best preserved in Australia, with the option to land here for a visit. The open-air museum takes you back in time to the hardships of convict life. 

    Another optional extra of this tour is a stop off at Bangor Vineyard Shed for wine tasting and lunch. If you’d like to include a stop at Port Arthur or Bangor please contact our office for a quote. 

    We offer complimentary pick up and drop off to all Hobart hotels, subject to availability. Your friendly pilot will provide a running commentary along the way pointing out all the major attractions and entertaining stories. 

    Duration: 60 Minutes (approx.)

    Please note our complimentary transfers to and from your accommodation are subject to availability.
