A new way to explore the beauty of Tasmania

There is a new way to discover the beauty of Tasmanian from above. 

Above and Beyond now operates scenic seaplane flights and charters from Kings Pier Marina, Franklin wharf, on Hobart’s waterfront.

The eight-seat (including the pilot) de Havilland Beaver is an amphibious aircraft, which means it can land both on water or land – so travelling just about anywhere is possible.

Tasmania is world famous for its natural beauty and spectacular landscapes. Now, Above and Beyond is providing the rare opportunity to experience this remarkable island from the air and touch down in some spectacular locations.

From a quick 25-minute ‘city scenic' flight to the remote south-west wilderness or sunny east coast, Above and Beyond says it aims to provide its customers with an experience they will never forget.

City Scenic: After taking off from the heart of Hobart’s waterfront, this scenic flight will give you a bird’s eye view of the city, before heading south to follow the River Derwent’s western shore as far as North West Bay. From here, the journey heads east to the rugged cliffs and white sandy beaches of Bruny Island. The flight then heads back up the river’s eastern shore, reaching the famous Tasman Bridge and experiencing views of kunanyi/Mt Wellington. Flights finish with a river landing and return to dock at Franklin Wharf.

Three Capes Panoramic: This scenic flight departs from Franklin Wharf and heads south-east to the spectacular Tasman Peninsula. From here it takes in the famous Three Capes from a perspective that very few people get to experience. A touch down at Port Arthur to view the UNESCO World Heritage-listed convict site and its surrounds from the water. Flights then make their way towards Cape Raoul and return to Hobart with fantastic views of the city and kunanyi/Mt Wellington.
