What people are saying about Tasmania

Well worth booking if you love a birds eye view, love the natural world and coastline. The lunch provided was no ordinary airplane meal, it was a carefully prepared restaurant style meal (vego for me). Freycinet is a view you want to take in from above and sides, as well as the surrounding coastal towns. Maria island had a fantastic supply of wildlife close to the airstrip which meant that I was in wombat heaven for our time spent moving about. The pilot gave clear instructions and narration during the experience. We went at the start of winter, so although it was cool, it didn’t detract from the magic of the adventure. I have already recommended this to everyone.

Great trip, beautiful scenery and well informed information provided by the pilot about the history of the areas we viewed. This was our first trip on a small plane which was enjoyed by all the family including the grandchildren.

Fabulous tour to Maria Island. Pilots were friendly and knowledgeable. Lunch provided was really good. Saw lots of wombats and kangaroos who were all very friendly. Highly recommend this trip.

A wonderful experience. Excellent pilot, showing and informing us in great detail of this beautiful place. Highly recommended and very good value.

So smooth and a very experience pilot Loved his knowledge
