Low Head and Tamar Valley

Fly back in time amongst The Pilot Station (1805) and Lighthouse

From Launceston Airport we fly past Mount Arthur where on days with good weather you have breath taking views over North- and Central Tasmania.

From the many coloured fields with its vineyards on the other side of Mount Arthur to the Tamar Valley below you, the views will be taking your breath away.

From Mount Arthur we continue tracking Northbound until we meet the Bass Strait.

We’ll fly you past the historic Low Head Lighthouse and Pilot Station. Set up in 1805, it is Australia's oldest continuously used pilot station surrounded by beautiful coastline, lagoons and beautiful sweeping beaches.

On the way back we’ll show you the gold mining town of Beaconsfield where in 2006 two miners got rescued after two weeks of being trapped underground when an Earthquake hit the region.

From here we set course towards the Cataract Gorge, which is Launceston’s biggest attraction. Take a picture of the original Duck Reach Power Station (1895) which put Launceston on the maps being one of the first cities in Australia to be connected to the permanent grid.

Experience a bird's eye view over the Launceston CBD with stunning views over Mount Arthur, Mount Barrow and Ben Lomond to the East and the “Western Tiers” and Cradle Mountain to the West before we head back to Launceston Airport for landing.

Feeling peckish? Why not take advantage of our optional landing sites on the way back at one of the many vineyards / restaurants for lunch or morning / afternoon tea.
