Seaplane flights to visit more destinations in Tasmania's parks

30/06/2014

The Tasmanian Government has approved a commercial licence to Tasmanian Air Adventures to expand its tourist seaplane flights to more destinations within Tasmania's parks and reserves.


The licence also allows Tasmanian Air Adventures to offer limited flights to more destinations including: the Southwest National Park, encompassing the Celery Top Islands, Forest Lagoon, Schooner Cove and Bramble Cove and Lake Pedder; Recherche Bay, within the Recherche Bay Nature Recreation Area; and Hazards Beach within Freycinet National Park.


Flights to Lake St Clair will also be offered under a trial arrangement for the next 12 months, with an independent survey of park visitors to be undertaken.


The licence has been granted following a trial period that found there were no adverse social or environmental impacts with the additional flights.
