Full description
Depart Cambridge Aerodrome, located 20-minutes drive from central Hobart, for an unforgettable tour by air to a remote area of Tasmania’s South West coast. It is one of only two places in the world that have 7 out of 10 criteria for world heritage listing. Fly over Hobart’s eastern suburbs and the Derwent River along the D’Entrecasteaux Channel.  On the 50-minute scenic flight, fly past Recherche Bay to Tasmanian’s most southern point, South East Cape. Leave the city behind as the aircraft enters the vast south-west west wilderness following the South Coast Track to Melaleuca. Land in Melaleuca and board a boat for a short cruise into Bathurst Harbor.  See the remote Celery Top Islands and take a short bush walk in the wilderness. Experience untouched landscape while breathing the cleanest air in the world. Enjoy a delicious lunch of Tasmanian produce and wine in a special remote location. Returning to Melaleuca, explore the area, visit the Deny King Bird Hide, and enjoy the Needwonnee Aboriginal Walk, an interpretive boardwalk. Later in the afternoon, board the aircraft for the return 50-minute scenic journey to Hobart.

    Fabulous views on the flight both ways, scenic coastlines of cliffs, beaches and islands and on return the mountains! Loved the boat trip on Bathurst Harbour and the side trips and short walks to enjoy the fabulous views. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. The morning tea and lunch were great and enjoyed with a Tasmanian Pinot noir. It was also interesting to learn some historical information about the area.
