Wineglass Bay and Maria Island Scenic Flight Experience

1. Wineglass Bay and Maria Island Scenic Flight Experience

Departing daily from Cambridge, fly towards and over the top of the Freycinet Peninsula on Tasmania’s East Coast. Freycinet National Park is one of Tasmania’s very first National Parks (est. 1916) and is home to dramatic pink granite mountains, secluded bays, crystal clear waters and pristine white beaches. Freycinet is home to Tasmania’s and arguably Australia’s most iconic white sands beach – Wineglass Bay, the aerial view of this sight is something truly spectacular and unforgettable. From the Freycinet Peninsula, fly over the seal colony of Ile Des Phoques, then continue your scenic flight towards your destination, Maria Island. Here land and set off on an exploration of the island national park. It’s tranquility combined with its natural beauty, rare wildlife and fascinating history makes it a unique and special place. Maria Island’s pristine untouched beaches, the crystal clear waters of the surrounding marine reserve and scenery like the magnificent Mt Maria and Bishop and Clerk peaks will take your breath away. Have a chance while on the Island to wander through forests of magnificent blue and white gums, some of them over 400 years old and unique to Maria Island. Step back in time and walk where convicts and explorers have walked before you. At the Fossils Cliffs see shellfish fossil beds unlike any other in the world. Maria Island is also famous for its abundance of wildlife being home to rare and endangered species like the Swift Parrot and Cape Barron Goose, Wombats, Kangaroos and of course, the Tasmanian Devil. It’s difficult to describe the beauty of Maria Island, you really have to see it to believe it. As you interact with the Maria Island’s local wildlife and take in the spectacular scenery your guide will prepare a bountiful Tasmanian picnic looking over the Northern end of the majestic national park. This feast is full of some of Tasmania’s finest offerings, consisting of fresh Oysters, Mussels, Salmon, Mackerel, Scallops, Octopus, all locally sourced from Tasmanian’s beautiful and clean waterways, this seafood smorgasbord is accompanied with paired Tasmanian premium white wine.

What people are saying about Freycinet Peninsula

It was a fantastic experience to see Wineglass bay and Mariah island from above. We had been there a few times, but the view from above is magical. The flight was well organised and Alex was an amazing pilot, guide, tour operator- all in one. Highly recommend it

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.

It was amazing, Liam our Pilot was awesome and had so much knowledge. The picnic lunch was divine on the most breathtaking Maria Island. Thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it22
