The best of Tasmania's East Coast

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.

"I had tried to decide about taking a tour with a long drive or a flight to travel outside Hobart. I am SO glad I decided to fly with these guys. Nick was a great and safe pilot and gave us lots of good info while we were flying. And I really enjoyed landing on Maria Island to see the kangaroos up close and personal. Great combo trip. I’m an Aussie specialist travel advisor so have done lots of experiences and this one is HIGHLY recommended. Worth the price."

"We did the Wineglass/Maria Island flight & tour. We're very glad we did! The views were wonderful and we saw a ton of wildlife. What made the whole trip even more enjoyable was our crew, both of whom took care of our every need and were a lot of fun to spend the day with."
