Winter Special: 5 hour Flight and Cruise
Our aircraft will fly you into this remote area via the South West Coast. Departing Cambridge airport, we will make our way down the D'Entrecasteaux Channel, past the mouth of the Huon River and on to Recherche Bay. We enter the South West World Heritage Area at South East Cape, Tasmania's most southern point, and make our way west, to Melaleuca.
After landing at Melaleuca, you'll board one of our boats where you'll experience this incredible and unique wilderness from the water as we travel via Melaleuca Inlet and into Bathurst Harbour. We will disembark at Clayton's Corner where you'll have an hour to eat lunch and explore the old home of fisherman Clyde Clayton who lived here with his wife from 1962-1976. Their home is now managed by the Parks and Wildlife Service as a day facility for visitors.
Returning to Melaleuca, we'll visit the Needwonnee Walk, an award winning Aboriginal interpretive experience.
We'll reboard our aircraft for the return flight to Cambridge Airport, via the spectacular Eastern Arthurs and Federation Peak, down the Huon Valley and over Hobart City.
