Sea Cliffs and Convicts (15 minutes)
- Duration: 15 Minutes (approx.)
- Location: Port Arthur, TAS
- Product code: PTSC
Rise from the Port Arthur heli base as gum trees grow small below. This is how your fifteen epic minutes begin. Catch a glimpse of kunanyi/Mount Wellington as towering Tasman sea cliffs reveal to the south.
Peek into Tassie’s convict past. Ask about the mysterious isle off Port Arthur Historic Site and tales of escapees. From your seat in the sky see why the peninsula was chosen for a penal colony and equally dreaded by those sent to this stunning patch.
En route to Cape Hauy there’s a ribbon of white sands that is Fortescue Bay. Perhaps the locale for your next dip? Many who finish the Three Capes Track wade into its clear waters. Hovering high over Cape Hauy keep an eye out for the ‘lanterns’ and ‘candlestick.’
