Tour Description

Departing from Cambridge Airport,fly into the remote Melaleuca air strip via the south coast. Flying over Hobart’s eastern suburbs and the Derwent River, you will make your way down the D’Entrecasteaux Channel, past Recherche Bay to Tasmanian’s most southern point, South East Cape. At this point leave civilisation behind and enter the vast south west wilderness by following the South Coast Track all the way to Melaleuca.

On the ground at 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 do some short local walks.

Afterwards, you’ll board one of our boats for a trip down Melaleuca Inlet and into Bathurst Harbour, Port Davey, 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 wilderness while breathing the cleanest air in the world. We will pick a remote location for a delicious lunch including Tasmanian produce and wine.

Late in the afternoon, we’ll reboard our aircraft, and return to Cambridge Airport, flying via spectacular Federation Peak, and Mt Picton, over Huonville and Hobart city.

The tour is approximately 8 hours in duration. Our price includes lunch consisting of wine and Tasmanian produce, morning tea/coffee, boat trip, a ground tour at Melaleuca and scenic flights to and from Melaleuca.
