Overview
Discover Tasmania’s Southwest National Park by plane during this tour from Hobart. This remote UNESCO World Heritage Site is mostly accessible via plane or boat. During the flight, check out Hobart and southern Tasmania from above before touching down inside the wilderness setting. Then board a boat and cruise around Bathurst Harbour.
What to Expect
After being picked up at your Hobart hotel, begin your small-group tour by taking flight in a plane from the Cambridge airport and enjoy the aerial views of the region. Land inside the remote wilderness of UNESCO–listed Southwest National Park, which is part of the Tasmania Wilderness World Heritage Area. Then, climb aboard a boat that crosses the inlet into Bathurst Harbour, which is about the size of Sydney Harbour, and catch a glimpse of the Celery Top Islands.

On the flight back to Cambridge, take in the sights of Mount Picton, Federation Peak, Huonville, and central Hobart. At the end of the tour, get dropped off at your hotel.

Lunch and brief guided bush walks are included during the full-day tour option. Plus, from May to October, there’s a special winter option that includes lunch and additional time at Claytons Corner on Bathurst Harbour.

SPECTACULAR!!

We flew along the coast, boarded boats through the National Park, had tea, then lunch on beaches. James is an extraordinary pilot, captain and guide. After the visit to the park, we flew inland over the Park's mountains. It was all amazing!
