Port Arthur Scenic Helicopter Flights

One of the best ways to see the spectacular rugged coastline of Tasmania is to take to the skies on a scenic helicopter flight. From up above you will have a bird’s eye view of the historic Port Arthur precinct and the lighthouse and cottages within the region. A scenic flight is the best way to view the sea cliffs that frame the Tasman Island. This is an activity that the whole family can enjoy marvelling at the beautiful scenery on a 15 minute or 30 minute scenic flight.

A short 15 minute flight will give you a teaser of the many sights within close proximity to Port Arthur. Enjoy views of Mt Wellington and Hobart to the West, Eaglehawk Neck to the North and the magnificent Tasman sea cliffs to the South. Passengers will also fly over the stunning and remote ‘Three Capes’ where hikers can take up the 46km challenge through rugged wilderness.

The 30 minute flight is a more comprehensive flight over the Tasman Island. On this flight, passengers will be taken over the historic Port Arthur Site to Cape Pillar where you can see stunning sea cliffs. Nearby lighthouse and cottages will also be pointed out by the pilot who provides interesting and entertaining commentary throughout the flight. The flight also passes over Cape Raoul to Crescent Bay, Remarkable Cave and Carnavon Bay community.
