30-Minute Hobart Scenic Flight

After taking off from the heart of Hobart’s waterfront, this scenic flight will give you a bird’s eye view over our beautiful city, before heading south to follow the River Derwent’s western shore as far as North West Bay.

From here, our journey heads east to the rugged cliffs and white sandy beaches of the northern tip of Bruny Island. We then head back up the river’s eastern shore, reaching the famous Tasman Bridge and experiencing views of the majestic kunanyi/Mt Wellington. We finish with a river landing and return to dock at Franklin Wharf.

If you go to Hobart, AAB is a must do. We took the 90min flight out to Port Arthur and the commentry from our pilot Ken made the trip that much more interesting. Great value!

Wow! What a brilliant way to spend a few hours - a scenic flight from Hobart along the coast, a picnic at Brambles bay and returning over the majestic mountains of the south west wilderness. Above and Beyond went Above and Beyond! Henry our pilot was super friendly and experienced, the scenery was unbelievable, especially the world heritage area of the south west, and the picnic food was spot on! Teens and adults alike loved the adventure! Thank you - highly recommend!

Absolutely stunning. You will not find a better way to experience hobart and the Tasman Peninsula. Skilful and playful pilots, interesting and informative stories and interpretation. An unexpected surprise was landing within a few hundred metres of the Port Arthur Historic Site. Cannot recommended highly enough, and looking forward to rebooking another Above and Beyond flight experience.

My wife and I were fortunate enough to join in on The Tassie Beach Picnic experience, where we were whisked away to an idyllic nearby beach on a glorious sunny day to enjoy a picnic lunch. The Above and Beyond crew really do live up to their name, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable, always checking in with us to ensure that we were ok. Taking off and landing is also surprisingly smooth. Don’t forget to wear shorts/suitable clothes as you will get your feet a little wet (all just part of the experience!) It was certainly a very special, unique and memorable experience! Highly recommend!

The knowledgeable, friendly, and experienced staff helped make this experience a real treat. Unfortunate weather forced a cancellation on our first booking (very Hobart), however the staff were able to rebook our flight promptly at our earliest convenience. We flew the very next morning through clear skies. We felt the staff cared about our engagement and enjoyment - we certainly walked away on a high. Definitely recommend.
