And finally as you fly out, you get to put it all together in your own 3D experiential map! But so much more than the amazingly pristine natural... More

An unforgettable experience with Par Avion, we took a mid morning helicopter fight with Greg to Bangor Wine & Oyster Shed for magnificent champagne and oysters. Great way to start our Tasmania trip. Staff are very helpful, the entire experience was smooth and professional. Definitely recommend.

Tasmania's South-West is such a beautiful part of the world, and A Day in the Wilderness tour with Par Avion is a perfect way to experience this remote part of Tassie. The guides/ pilots are both knowledgable and friendly and are a big part of the reason why this tour is so enjoyable. I would highly recommend this tour to... More

A wonderful flight over extraordinary scenery, with a beautiful boat trip thrown in. Our pilot Dain and the whole ground staff could not have been kinder in helping my elderly parents (88 and 84!) access the plane and boat and ensuring their comfort. We look forward to our next trip! Our only suggestion is that Par Avion invest in a... More

I was given the opportunity for a photographic scenic heli flight with Par Avion. It was an awesome flight with a skilled pilot. There was not alot of location explanation, and I nealry missed Port Arthur. The flight was amazing though!! Totally enjoyed! Thanks! If you can do it, I would recommend!

Cannot speak too highly of the staff and pilots of Par Avion. A wonderful flight into the SW Widerness and the cruise on Bathurst Harbour. To top it off the weather was brilliant - so hot some of our companions even went swimming. Nothing was too much trouble and the office people were most obliging. Even paid for our taxi... More

We completed the south coast trek from Cockle creek to melalueca and had booked our flight out too far ahead so asked the pilots if they could get us home a day early. We had also mostly run out of food having shared some with a group in need on the walk! We also wanted to join the boat tour... More

We were lucky with the weather the day that we took this tour. The flight was very smooth, and the harbour just stunning. Pristine wilderness. The pilots looked after us very well for the full day. Enjoyed very good morning tea and lunch on different beaches on the harbour. Short walk to finish. Most enjoyable.

It is hard to describe how amazing this tour is. An incredible flight over some of the most beautiful wilderness on earth then exploring on foot and by boat this harsh yet extraordinary place including the majestic Bathurst Harbour. We were treated to a close up sighting of the world's rarest bird, the Orange Bellied parrot with only a handful... More
