What you can expect
Experience the natural beauty of Tasmania’s East Coast from above on a thrilling airplane ride. Depart from Cambridge and make your way to Maria Island, where you touch down for a fascinating tour of Darlington before heading to the skies again for a flight past Port Arthur.
Your adventure begins by boarding a plane and departing from Cambridge, rising into the sky as you fly along the East Coast of Tasmania toward Freycinet Peninsula. Pass above the famous Wineglass Bay, where a white-sand beach sits alongside turquoise waters surrounded by mountains covered in dense greenery. Follow along the peninsula to Maria Island, where you touch down in the old penal colony of Darlington.
Embark on a guided walking tour of Darlington, learning about the era in the early 19th century when convicts called the island home. Follow your guide to the intact structures used during this time as probation stations and housing for the felons.
After a delightful lunch, reboard your aircraft and fly over the nearby penal settlement of Port Arthur, followed by spectacular views of the impressive cliffs found on the eastern side of the peninsula. Your flight then comes to an end as you cruise over the remote Tasman Island lighthouse and Shipsterns Bluff, a well-known surfing destination, before returning to the airport in Cambridge.
