Wineglass and Wildlife
After leaving Cambridge Airport, we approach and fly over the top of the breathtaking Freycinet Peninsula. Established in 1916, Freycinet National Park is one of Tasmania’s very first National Parks and is home to dramatic pink granite mountains, secluded bays, crystal clear waters and pristine white beaches.
Home to Tasmania’s most iconic white sands beach – Wineglass Bay, the aerial view is something truly spectacular and an unforgettable experience.
Leaving the peninsula, we fly over the seal colony of Ile Des Phoques and continue towards our destination Maria Island, where we’ll land and set off on an exploration of the island national park. We take in the natural beauty and tranquillity of Maria Island, with its rare wildlife, crystal clear waters and the impressive scenery of Mt Maria and Bishop and Clerk peaks.
Wander through the forests of great blue and white gum trees, some over 400 years old and unique to the area. Famous for its abundance of wildlife, Maria Island is home to rare and endangered species like the swift parrot and Cape Barron goose, wombats, kangaroos and of course, the Tasmanian Devil. We enjoy an hour and a half exploring the island including a sumptuous lunch with local Tasmanian seafood and wine, before returning home by air to Hobart.
