8Hr Hobart To Southwest Wilderness Flight Tour & Cruise

The rugged terrain of the remote Tasmanian Southwest wilderness makes it very challenging to explore the fruits of this natural gem. With this full day trip from Hobart, you can enjoy exclusive access to the heart of the region – first by air, then land, and finally water! 

At the Cambridge Aerodrome, just 15 minutes away from Hobart city, you’ll meet the pilot and guide for the day.  He will brief you on the experience ahead and strap you up for an epic flight tour! Start your adventure with a scenic flight tour from Hobart, following the coast past Bruny Island and down to Cockle Creek.

Enjoy the views from the window seat as you fly along the rugged South Coast track – see beaches, thick rainforests and incredible mountain ranges. To add a hint of culture, you’ll also fly over the ancestral home of the Needwonnee people, who uninhabited the Louisa Bay for thousands of years!

Once you touch down at the Bathurst Harbour Aerodrome, you can first explore the region by land as you hike past the Orange Belly Parrot bird hide and the Deny King Museum. You can refresh yourself with a hot morning tea. Continue through the forest along the edge of the Melaleuca Inlet and lagoon – this region holds great Aboriginal significance.

Now, it’s time for a scenic boat ride to Bathurst Harbour, which is an untouched waterway three times the size of Sydney Harbour. En route you can enjoy the delights of the Melaleuca Inlet, which includes hidden coves, coastal cliffs and the mighty Mt. Rugby reigning over the region. A gourmet Tassie lunch awaits along with local wine, coffee, tea and some desserts to round up your dining experience.

Post lunch, there’s more time to explore the wilderness of Southwest Tasmania! Explore the historic Clayton’s Corner on Melaleuca Inlet or shorestop around the harbour or at Bathurst Narrows. There’s ample time to enjoy the panoramic landscapes here or take an optional short walk. (Some of the activities included in the tour are dependent on weather and time convenience.)

On your way back to the airstrip, you’ll pass by even more untamed plains and hills that surround the waterways – needless to say, be camera ready! Breathe in the cleanest air in the world one last time before boarding back on the flight. Your return flight is just as scenic – fly over the Hartz Mountain National Park, the iconic Federation Peak, Mt Picton, and the Huon valley, before entering Hobart via Mt Wellington.

This South West Tasmania Wilderness tour is more than just an experience, it’s a chance to reconnect with Mother Earth’s raw elegance. So be part of nature’s story and enjoy the very best of Tasmania! Book now!
