Our signature flight, The Grand Tour, encompasses the most beautiful of southern Tasmania’s vistas from the sky. Departing from our Hobart Airport base, we fly towards the Tasman Peninsula, a treasure trove of stunning geography and wild elements of nature. There are many famous iconic view points along the way including Cape Pillar, Cape Raoul, Tasman Island and the lighthouse. A helicopter offers the best views and photo opportunities alongside and above this dramatic scenery. We then fly over the famous 3 Capes Track, a very popular multi-day hike through the stunning Tasmanian wilderness.
We offer complimentary pick up and drop off to all Hobart hotels, subject to availability. Your friendly pilot will provide a running commentary along the way pointing out all the major attractions and entertaining stories of Tasmania’s history.
Duration: 60 Minutes (approx.)
What You'll Get
Take a flight in our Turbine powered Bell Jet rangers, AS350B3 Squirrel, AS355 Twin Squirrel or EC130 B4 Eurocopter.
Enjoy a complimentary hotel pickup and transfer from your centrally located Hobart accommodation to our base at the airport. Before taking flight, take part in a short safety briefing. Then, you’ll be ready for your 60-minute scenic flight over the wild southern Tasmanian wilderness.
As we fly around the tip of Tasman Island it is hard to miss the lighthouse perched on top, the highest operating lighthouse in Australia and marks the final turning point for yachts in the annual Sydney to Hobart yacht race.
The towering ancient dolerite cliffs (the highest in the Southern Hemisphere) and rock formations are awe-inspiring, you may even be able to spot seals sunning themselves on the rocks, or rock climbers scaling the cliffs. From here we can fly to Port Arthur or Cape Hauy, the last Cape on the three-cape track. View the exceptional rock formations of the Candlestick and Totem Pole, phenomenal large columns of dolerite rock sticking straight up and out of the ocean, a spectacular sight to see.
Port Arthur convict settlement is one of the best preserved in Australia, with the option to land here for a visit. The open-air museum takes you back in time to the hardships of convict life.
Another optional extra of this tour is a stop off at Bangor Vineyard Shed for wine tasting and lunch. If you’d like to include a stop at Port Arthur or Bangor please contact our office for a quote.
