See Tasmania from the skies

Shared by |tags,

For those who want a truly unique and special experience of Tasmania on their holiday, why not head into the skies and see what the view is like from up there?

There are a number of small planes, helicopter and tour operators across Tasmania who will be happy to show you what all the fuss about Tasmania is from up in the clouds. Seeing Tasmania's hills and mountains from above is an extremely stunning experience.

One of your options is to see Cradle Mountain from the air. Take off in your comfortable copter and look down on Cradle Mountain, Dove Lake, Waterfall Valley, Crater Lake, Barn Bluff and Australia's deepest gorge, aptly named the Fury Gorge, which is arguably even more impressive from above.

You may also want to head out with Tasmanian Air Adventures, who provide an awe-inspiring seaplane experience. This tour leaves from Hobart, so you get to see the city and its surrounding natural wilderness from above – certainly not your usual tourist experience, but one that many will envy.

You can also see Port Arthur, the Freycinet Peninsula, Bruny Island, Gordon River and Port Davey from the air.

With a Tall Timbers Adventure Tour you get the best vantage point for viewing the Tarkine rainforest, which is located in the north-west of the state. It also happens to be the southern hemisphere's largest cool climate rain forest, so you're flying over a truly significant natural landmark.

Is there anywhere else that you would like to fly in Tasmania – and do you prefer travelling via plane or helicopter? Cross your preference off your Bucket List and look down upon some of Australia's wonders.
