With islands off islands and scalloped coastlines, it’s no wonder we crave aerial views of Tasmania.
Add rugged peaks and rainforest, and a patchwork of lavender and canola fields.
Soar over the state’s scenic features on zip-lines, ropes courses, chairlifts, hot-air balloons, helicopters and light planes.
Best aerial adventures
If you like to be a little airborne – but not too much – elevated options include strolling in the treetops in southern Tasmania, and zip-lining or taking a high-ropes course through a forest in northern Tasmania.
Join the early birds across northern Tasmania by lifting off near Launceston on a hot-air balloon ride at dawn.
Take to the skies in a small aircraft or helicopter for a bird’s-eye view of the island state. Several operators run scenic flights over or around beauty spots such as Cradle Mountain, Strahan, kunanyi / Mount Wellington, Port Arthur, Wineglass Bay and Tamar Valley.
