A Weekend in Strahan

Strahan offers some of Tasmania's most beautiful scenery, located on the rugged and remote west coast of Tasmania. Not serviced by commercial flights, Australian Air Safaris solves the access issue by flying directly from Melbourne to the Strahan airstrip in ninety minutes. Learn about the mining, timber, and hydro industries in the wilds around Queenstown, contrast that with the magnificent Gordon River, wonder at the convict prison on Sarah Island, step back in time on the West Coast Wilderness Railway and indulge in delectable food and wine in this spectacular region.



Australian Air Safaris tours offer unique itineraries flying around Australia.  We explore our vast nation in our private planes, meaning we are always small groups, and everyone has a window seat.  We have over 45 years of air touring experience, creating unforgettable experiences that will last a lifetime. Our all-inclusive* tours are hosted by our knowledgeable pilots and assisted by local guides who share our passion for this country, ensuring you're never short of stories to tell when you get home.

We take care of all of the planning and logistics. All you have to do is meet us at the airport, ready for an adventure of a lifetime. We will whisk you away to places near and far, exploring the hard to get to and the unique.
