Islands of Tasmania

This tour is fully booked

This is a 7 day tour by luxury chartered aircraft visiting 5 of the Tasmanian islands: Flinders, King, Maria, Bruny and Sarah. We spend 2 nights on each of the Bass Strait islands of King and Flinders and we have comprehensive guided sightseeing throughout the tour. You’ll see the contrasts between the islands: seaweed harvesting, a 7000 year old calcified forest, penguins, a former Tasmanian aboriginal mission, the renown King Island Dairy, former penal colony and the resupply port for French and English sailors as well as the site of Australia’s worst maritime accident.

We fly in a turbine powered Cessna Caravan aircraft which is certified as one the safest single engine aeroplanes. Its equipped with 8 passenger seats though we will have maximum 6 guests, so everyone has a window seat and we fly at altitudes which afford the best views commensurate with safety and operational requirements.
