Not only was the flight breathtaking, but our Pilot David also turned out to be an excellent and committed tourguide, boat captain and attentive intelligent conversationalist. We have raved to all our friends about this easy, no stress, no exhaustion day trip to the (thank God) unspoiled western Wilderness. We are considering to come back and do the 3 day... More

A wonderful day tour to the wild South West. It starts around 9 am flying over Hobart and then following the rugged Tassie coast line to Bathurst harbour. Fin, our pilot and guide for the day gave us a brilliant tour. It is a full-on experience and probably the next best thing to actually bush walking and staying down and... More

Highly recommend this trip. Husband and I had a great day out exploring this remote part of the world. Even though the weather wasn't great, it was an amazing day out.

Michael is an excellent pilot. Smooth ride and landing despite 45 knots cross wind, sleet and 65 km headwind at Malaleuca. Cheery, knowledgeable, competent. The team at Par Avion could not be more helpful and accommodating. Excellent company. Have flown with them before and will again.

Perfect day to enjoy the coastal flight in, Bathurst Harbour by boat and the return flight over the wilderness mountains. Enjoyed Tasmanian produce for morning tea and lunch on the shore. Guides friendly and informative. Return to Melaleuca and Bathurst Harbour after walking the South Coast Track over 45 years ago lived up to all my expectations.

This experience was something I've been wanting to do most of my life! We finally managed it for our 25th wedding anniversary and it was fantastic. Just make sure you don't run out of battery in your camera!

This has to be one of the best attractions in Hobart! We were so fortunate to have perfect weather. Flying conditions were ideal and the whole experience faultless thanks to the very capable Par Avion staff. Our pilot was Finn and his manner was friendly but professional and knowledgeable. The photo opportunities were endless during the flight and the boat... More

My wife and I did the full day Wilderness Tour and I can say with all honesty that this was the best day tour we have ever done, anywhere. Thomas, the pilot, was very knowledgable about all aspects of the areas we visited as well as being a great boat driver and able to prepare a delicious meal. The Wilderness... More
