Red Baron Seaplanes


Red Baron Seaplanes has been operating scenic flights out of Townsville for 10 years where it is a major tourist icon.


Early in 2016 Red Baron Seaplanes was purchased by a Western Australian owner, resulting in the aircraft spreading its wings to grace the skies of Perth.


The Red Baron will now spend six months of the year in Perth and six months in Townsville. In 2016 Perth operations will run until 30th May with Townsville operations kicking off in June.

(Please contact us for exact dates of operation. Please note that these dates will change slightly year on year dependant on weather conditions and bookings.)
