We always like to take a helicopter flight to see the full view of the scenery. This time we did the 20 minute Cradle Mt circuit, and it was wonderful. There is just so much you miss if your just walking the tracks. The sky was blue and cloudless so I guess we were lucky in that respect.

The service offered by Cradle Mt helicopters was great from the arrival, during the flight commentary and such a smooth flight. Great little R44 which we flew in. There are longer flights but I would no less than the 20 minute flight.

After visiting the Cradle Mountain and Dove Lake area we decided we must see the whole area by air. By chance we wandered back down to the booking office and we were able to take a heli flight over the whole area. With clear skies and once up in the air were given a birds eye view of Cradle Mountain and the surrounding area. This flight was amazing and compared with the flight we did in Queenstown NZ. So if you are thinking about doing a heli flight this is the company to take you up up and away. A big thanks to Luke our chopper pilot and Brian in the office this is one memory that will stay with us to the end.

We did an hour long flight on Boxing Day (my surprise Christmas present). Absolutely stunning from start to finish. Albert the owner and James the pilot were both incredible and so helpful and knowledgeable. We were lucky enough to have absolutely perfect weather and so had a ride as smooth as silk and views that are impossible to describe. Highly recommend this - it is something we won't forget. Highlight of our 3 week Tasmanian stay.

With young Luke at the control, I and my family took to the sky in his helicopter for a quick bird's eye view of Cradle Mountain. Luke gave us a pre-flight safety talk as the helicopter that housed the pilot and 5 passengers looked a bit flimsy for comfort. However, our confidence grew after the safety talk and witnessing the series of pre-flight checks that Luke took before we took to the sky. Luke hovered the helicopter a good 20 feet above ground and did some manoeuvre to ensure all controls were in sound working order before he took us higher to have a good view of the scenary. The helicopter hovered at around 6,000 feet during the flight and was gently edging forward so that the passengers would have a comfort ride in it. The weather was extremely nice to us on the day of our flight, plenty of sunshine and a slight breeze. We took in great scenery of the Cradle Mountain and Dove Lake, view which you cannot see from the ground below. After 20 minutes of breathtaking sight-seeing, Luke returned us safe and sound to the landing pad. I found that the price tag of AUD250 per head is worthed every penny of it. The only complaint I had was Luke has forgotten to do the dare-devil loop for us before we landed! Thoroughly enjoyable experience.

We took a 20 minute helicopter flight that flew slowly around Cradle Mountain
The views were fantastic and something you can not see on the ground
The day we visited it was overcast so they took our number and called us when the weather had cleared up
Our pilot was friendly and gave us great info on this world heritage site
Cant recommend this activity highly enough
