Hobart City Highlights
From $149 per person
If you are visiting Hobart for the first time, or a seasoned local, the Hobart City Scenic Experience is an excellent opportunity to see our beautiful city from an entirely new perspective. Over thirty breathtaking minutes, we'll fly over the Eastern Shore and cross the winding Derwent River, which offers up spectacular views of familiar landmarks, including the Tasman Bridge. We then track upstream toward MONA and the Northern Suburbs. Turning to fly south, we fly over kunanyi / Mt Wellington, the majestic backdrop to Hobart City. At a towering height of over 1200 metres, its rugged peaks are often dusted with snow during winter. We'll continue soaring over Hobart CBD and the harbour area before passing Kingston, the South Arm coastal community and Clifton Beach on our return to Cambridge.
Soar high over Freycinet National Park, home to dramatic pink granite mountains, secluded bays, crystal clear waters and pristine white beaches. Tasmania’s most iconic white sand beach – Wineglass Bay, is the highlight of this scenic tour – the aerial view is truly spectacular and an unforgettable experience. Leaving the peninsula, we fly over the seal colony of Ile Des Phoques and continue towards our destination Maria Island. We'll land and set off on an exploration of the tranquil island national park.
Famous for its abundance of wildlife, Maria Island is home to rare and endangered species like the swift parrot and Cape Barron goose, wombats, kangaroos and of course, the Tasmanian Devil. We enjoy an hour and a half exploring the island including a sumptuous gourmet lunch with local Tasmanian seafood and wine, before returning home by air to Hobart.
This new eight-hour tour explores the remote and harsh southern coasts and waterways of this rugged and beautiful region of Tasmania. Landing at Melaleuca Airport, we take to the water and explore the pristine waterways of The Port Davey Marine Reserve taking in Waterfall Bay and the Breaksea Islands. After a gourmet lunch featuring delicious Tasmanian produce, we disembark the vessel and explore the Melaleuca Museum and the Needwonnee Walk, a fantastic monument to the rich indigenous history of the area. Returning to the skies, we head inland over The Arthur Range, arguably Tasmania’s most spectacular mountain range. Taking in Mount Picton and The Huon Valley, we return to Hobart via Mount Wellington for a birds-eye view of the beautiful capital of Tasmania before landing back at Cambridge.
We depart Cambridge airport and fly over the picturesque central highlands of Tasmania towards the island’s wild west coast, taking in the grand scale of Macquarie Harbour before descending to Strahan to join the award-winning Gordon River Cruise. We board the award-winning Gordon River Cruises and journey through the famous waterway of the Gordon River, part of Tasmania’s UNESCO Wilderness World Heritage Area. We travel through ‘Hell’s Gates’ at the mouth of the Macquarie Harbour before looking at local salmon and trout farms. As we cruise to our second stop of the day, we enjoy a delicious chef-prepared lunch before taking a guided tour of Sarah Island, hearing the stories of the former penal colony which is now one of Tasmania’s most unique and fascinating historical sites.
