Only when you get into the helicopter and rise above Tasmania will you realise the dramatic landscape and wilderness.
It’s important to note that these are scenic tours, so it’s not just about being in a helicopter and getting flown around for a while, The pilot will take you on a tour of the most picturesque locations while discussing each landmark and why it’s important to the island.
