What's Included

  • 15 min tour in a Bell 206 Longranger or similar turbine helicopter
  • See mighty landscapes from a helicopter 
  • Two-way communication between you, your pilot, and your group
  • Learn stories of Tasmania's past from a knowledgable guide 
  • Views of Three Capes Track, The Candlestick, Tasman Golf Course, Port Arthur Historic Site, Fortescue Bay, Denmans Cove, Cape Hauy

WHAT TO EXPECT

Head to the Port Arthur Heli Base to depart on a 15-minute helicopter tour of Tasmania's intense landscapes. As you depart from the base, catch a glimpse of kunanyi/Mount Wellington and the towering Tasman sea cliffs to the south.

 

As you soar through the clouds, you'll learn about Tasmania's convict past through narration from your pilot. Ask about the mysterious isle off Port Arthur Historic Site and tales of escapees. From your seat in the sky, you'll understand why the peninsula was chosen for a penal colony and equally dreaded by those sent to this stunning patch.

 

En route to Cape Hauy, there’s a ribbon of white sand beaches — this is Fortescue Bay, about 10 km east of Port Arthur and makes up part of Tasman National Park. Many who finish the Three Capes Track wade into the clear waters of this beach. Hovering high over Cape Hauy, keep an eye out for the lanterns and the 110-meter tall candlestick — towering rock formations that are the highlight of your 15-minute helicopter tour. This scenic and educational helicopter tour is a great option for those who want to book a quick ride around Tasmania's mighty landscapes.

The helicopters have limited payload they can lift so for the safety of all guests and crew we need to know accurately what the total weight of our aircraft is. This also helps us in planning refuelling requirements for the helicopter. Individual guests in excess of 110kg will be required to pay for an additional seat as we will be required to restrict further seats on the aircraft.
