My wife and i experienced this wonderful journey and will not forget how amazing and majestic the wilderness was.The plane ride out and back and the boat ride on the water was the wonder of the trip with the water like a mirror image of the bush surrounds.We will be doing this trip again on our next trip to Tasmania.

Most people have a small cache of memories of special events and places that were life changing or life affirming. Par Avion's "Day in the Wilderness" all-day tour of Tasmania's wild South-West Wilderness is one of those special times to be cherished for the rest of one's life. With a flight time of around 50 minutes, your pilot takes you... More

Hands down one of the best experiences I have had in Tasmania. The pilots were both really nice and very informative giving great commentary on everything from flora & fauna, geology to historical stories. Highly recommend

Was originally wanting to join the Maria Island tour but unfortunately Autumn/winter is a low travel season for Hobart, and I was flying solo so they recommended me to join the "South West Winter Special". Didnt know much about the South West of Hobart but I really wanted to go on a little plane so there I was. We flew... More

Took their tour from Cambridge Aerodrome for the flight and boat tour. The scenery is unbelievable from the air and also from the boat. Lunch was provided in an unbelievable setting. The pilot (Stuart) provided an informed commentary everywhere and also acted as the pilot for the boat and served the lunch. Service was excellent, friendliness was tops and I... More

Fin, the pilot, was very friendly, knowledgeable, thorough and observant (he found my Ray Bans that I left on the... More

We wish to thank Par-Avion for the unforgettable experience that they provided for us on the scenic flight to Melaleuca ,the trip to Bathurst Harbour,the Needwonnee Walk and the visit to the home of the late Deny King. Our return flight along the spectacular southern coastline was another highlight with our trip ending by flying up the channel to Cambridge.... More
