Maria Island Wineglass and Wildlife Scenic Flight
See one Tasmania's hidden treasures - the beautiful Maria Island. The east coast of Tasmania has some spectacular scenery, and this scenic flight gives you an opportunity to appreciate this, from the air, the ground and the sea.
Departing Cambridge, you’ll fly up the east coast of Tasmania toward Freycinet Peninsula, and the famous Wineglass Bay, named one of the worlds best beaches. You’ll fly overhead giving you some great photo opportunities, before tracking south, following the Freycinet Peninsula and on toward Maria Island.
Serving as a penal colony from 1825 until 1850, Darlington on Maria Island is the most representative and intact example of a probation station in Australia. The site has remained relatively unchanged since the convict era and this has been highlighted through the area’s recent inclusion as a UNESCO listed World Heritage property.
You will board your aircraft where there is an opportunity to have an aerial view of the historic penal settlement of Port Arthur and see the spectacular cliffs found on the eastern side of the peninsula. You will see the remote Tasman Island lighthouse and fly over Tasmania’s world-renowned big wave surfing destination, Shipsterns Bluff, before returning to Cambridge via the city of Hobart.
