Southwest Wilderness Experience
- Duration: 6 Hours (approx.)
- Location: Hobart, TAS
- Product code: SWE
Departing daily from Hobart, our aircraft will fly you into this remote area via the south coast. Flying over Hobart’s eastern suburbs and the Derwent River, we will make our way down the D’Entrecasteaux Channel, past Recherche Bay to Tasmanian’s most southern point, South East Cape. At this point we leave civilisation behind and enter the vast south west wilderness by following the South Coast Track all the way to Melaleuca.
On arrival to Melaleuca we'll board our tour boat for a cruise into Bathurst Harbour, an untouched waterway twice the size of Sydney Harbour.
You will see the remote Celery Top Islands, take walks in the wilderness, giving you an opportunity to experience untouched landscape while breathing the cleanest air in the world. We will pick a remote location for a delicious lunch including Tasmanian produce and wine.
On our return to Melaleuca, you’ll have the opportunity to explore some of the area, including a visit to see the rare and endangered Orange-Bellied Parrot at the Deny King Bird Hide, and the award winning Needwonnee walk.
Late in the afternoon, we’ll board our aircraft again, and return to Hobart, flying via spectacular Federation Peak, and Mt Picton, over Huonville and Hobart city.
The tour is approximately 6 hours in duration. Our price includes lunch consisting of wine and Tasmanian produce, boat trip, and scenic flights to and from Melaleuca.
