Tasmania Wilderness Experience: Southwest National Park by Air with Bush Walk and Harbor Cruise
Entering Tasmania's vast southwest wilderness area, follow the route of the South Coast Track to land at Melaleuca Inlet. On the ground, visit the Deny King Bird Hide at Melaleuca and see the rare and endangered orange-bellied parrot.
Then board a boat to cruise along Melaleuca Inlet and into Bathurst Harbour, an untouched waterway the size of Sydney Harbour. Photograph views of the remote Celery Top Islands, and breathe the cleanest air in the world.
Your return flight to Cambridge takes you over Federation Peak, Mt Picton, Huonville and the Hobart city center.
On the full-day wilderness tour, available year-round, spend approximately six hours at Southwest National Park. Have lunch in a spectacular remote location, a world away from civilization, and take short guided bush walks through the wilderness.
The half-day option operates from November to April, with a choice of morning and afternoon departures. Enjoy around two hours in the Southwest National Park on the half-day tour, with morning or afternoon tea included in the park.
Operating only in winter, from May to October, the five-hour wintertime tour highlights the beauty of Tasmania’s wilderness dappled with snow, and includes lunch plus an hour extra on the ground at Claytons Corner on Bathurst Harbour.

The pilot picked me up at the hotel, flew the plane, drove the boat, made coffee and tea and drove me back to the hotel! What service! Plus a great flight with spectacular views. Tasmania is beautiful!

A good and adventurous trip. Good insulation clothes should be provided. When it in the boat, too cold to enjoy.
