My whole family just loved the day we spent on the Southwest Wilderness Winter Tour. It is so worth every cent if not more. The scenery is breathtaking, and Bathurst harbour is truly amazing. Balmoral beach was such a beautiful place to have lunch. There were two flights going on the Friday we went and the two young men who... More

We booked the full day East Coast tour and had the best time with the best weather. We flew to maria island and also took the boat around the island with lunch. It is a full day. Highly recommend.

One of the most magnificent days we have had anywhere in the world! What a treat to be taken to one of the most beautiful and pristine areas still left untouched in the world. Thoroughly recommend this as a must do if you are going to Tassie and want to have a spectacular day. Probably need to have some flexibility... More

Par Avian's team literally went above & beyond when an administration glitch saw us arriving at Cambridge airport after weather delays cancelled all flights for the previous few days. Instead of our booked Freycinet & Maria Island tour we had bums on seats for the SW Wilderness tour. What a day, amazing and their pilots are worth their weight in... More

A must see for anyone travelling to Tasmania. It was our 1 year anniversary and my dear mother Janice Johnston surprised us with romantic scenic flights and cruise of Tasmanias South west Wilderness. It was so beautiful, I can't stop my mind wandering off and thinking about it, I feel totally refreshed and inspired by natures beauty. Flying round the... More

Mum and dad would then walk back to melaleuca and fly out while the 'kids' would continue on and complete the south coast... More

Highly recommend this tour. My brother and I were so impressed with our pilot/tour commentator/boat handler Finn. His expert commentary on the flight down and back, his expert boat handling and skill in the aircraft made a great day tour so much more enjoyable. The views and scenery are something we will not forget. Dollar for dollar I do not... More

We have just finished the Wilderness Day Tour and we had one of the best days in Tasmania. We flew along the coast to Melalucca and then a boat trip (including MT and lunch) into Bathurst Harbour and Port Davey, before returning to Hobart over the ranges, Huon Valley and Hobart. This pristine wilderness area can only be reached by... More

Can't recommend this tour more highly. 10/10 for staff, safety, efficiency and local knowledge. We had the pleasure of Hugh being our Pilot, Tour Guide and Skipper, he was awesome and his landings were very gentle. We did have an awesome day weather wise and our small tour of 4 passengers were looked after wonderfully. We flew in a Cessna... More
