What an amazing experience. We could not have asked for more. The staff were all fabulous. Our pilots were friendly, informative and caring and couldn't do enough to make our flight enjoyable. We were well catered for and the scenery was absolutely amazing. Thankyou Hugh ( our wonderful pilot ) & Stewie (Co-pilot- photographer 😉) for a wonderful day.

My pregnant, toddler and I did a tour last week to the South West Wilderness area with Mike organizing the trip for us and Stewie flying us in and out. We found amazing value for money, fantastic service, honesty and they are true ambassadors for Tasmania, proud of their state. Very well informed, friendly and took care of all our... More

A wonderful (surprise) experience for my husband! He enjoyed every detail: the flight to/back; the food (gourmet and delicious); and the tour commentary. It's a remarkable world heritage listed place and it was wonderful to be immersed in the wilderness there. I couldn't recommend this tour enough :)

If you don't have several days or more to walk into the south western wilderness of Tasmania then fly with Par Avion in their cute and zappy little planes from Hobart to Melaleuca and explore from there by boat out towards the Southern Ocean.A small group tour, personalised, classy and with a well informed and skilled pilot as your guide,...

We loved every minute of our wilderness experience - the landscapes and the human stories came alive so vividly through the understated, unrushed and utterly professional leadership of the staff at every level. We feel so better informed now about a magnificent part of our country we would never have experienced otherwise. And the meals were great! We are recommending... More

The flight is okay, if you dont sit in the third row (no windows). After landing in Melaleuca, you visit a orange-bellied parrot station where you most likely dont see parrots. Then you take a highspeed boat ride (dont get much of the scenery) to a beach where lunch is served. After a hispeed boat ride back, you take a... More

Quite disappointing to get our first "terrible" review. Thankfully the vast majority of passengers don't believe this. Also the tourism industry do not either, as we just won the Australian Tourism Award for Major Tour and Transport Operator a few weeks ago. Why is the tour called a "Day in the Wilderness"? Well the tour goes for 8 hours (a... More

Flight from Cambridge to Melaleuca was smooth and our Pilot Tom was very informative. Boat trip to Bathurst Harbour was equally as good, smooth calm water. Our morning tea and lunch were excellent. Beautiful pristine areas only seen and appreciated by air unless you are lucky to be able to walk/hike. Return trip to Hobart spectacular! Accolades to Tom and... More

We took the day wilderness tour, plane for an hour, boat tour of Port Davey and plane tour home. I can only say that if you have a bucket list this has to be included at the top of it. This is truly spectacular. Our pilots Luke and Nick did all possible to ensure that we enjoyed the day. Their... More

Stunning scenery on the flight, professional, knowledgable and very helpful pilots and guides made this an unforgettable experience. This area is historically fascinating having been the site of a tin mine (visit to Deny King's cottage was a highlight), a tragic failed attempt to set up a jewish community at Port Davey, and an insight into the Aboriginal inhabitants made...

Unfortunately we couldn't go on our scenic flight as apparently it was too windy, which is fine as you can't control the weather. Though, it would have been nice to have been notified about this before I spent $70 on taxis getting out there and back. I am not a pilot, I don't know what appropriate flying weather is, I'm...
