A Day in the wilderness
Take an unforgettable full day tour, exploring the incredibly remote waterways and wilderness of Bathurst Harbour/ Port Davey.
Departing from Cambridge Airport, 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 (Bathurst Harbour).
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, we’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 50 minute scenic flights to and from Melaleuca.
Departs daily, October through to April, weather permitting.
