Experience Hobart like never before
Alfin_O, Jan 2022
Seeing and recording Hobart from above like I have never before was exhilarating .
Taking a flight in a historic plane was thrilling too.
The take off and landing were the smoothest I’ve experienced in any aircraft.
The pilot and his crew were so nice and put you at ease from the get go 😊

Seaplane over Hobart
Anne_W, Mar 2021
We LOVED our 30 minute flight around Hobart in the seaplane! The seaplane flies from the wharf along the western shoreline of Hobart, over the Derwent estuary at the northern end of Bruny Island, and then northwards along the eastern shoreline of Hobart. The flight is amazing! The seaplane flies lower than bigger planes, so it is incredible to be able to pick out notable things, such as our house, or a particular building. As well as that, the bird's eye perspective from the air is so totally different to what we are used to. Amazing trip! May I post some photos that I took whilst on the trip? How can I do that?
