Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect
Photograph the pristine beaches, remote wilderness and perfect wineglass shape of this gorgeous bay.
After approximately 80 minutes in the air, land on Maria Island and visit the site of the penal colony that existed at Darlington from 1825 to 1850, the most intact example of a probation station in Australia. Explore the site’s collection of 14 historic buildings, unchanged since the convict era and recently World Heritage listed by UNESCO.
For a better view of Maria Island, circumnavigate the island on a scenic boat tour, or visit the island’s seal colonies if sea conditions prohibit an island circuit.
Enjoy lunch with wine on Maria Island, then board the plane for the return 40-minute scenic flight back to Hobart. Fly over the rocky cliffs of the Tasman Peninsula for aerial views of the Port Arthur historic penal settlement. See the remote Tasman Island lighthouse and fly over the wild surf of Shipsterns Bluff, before enjoying aerial views over the city of Hobart on your return to the airport at Cambridge.
