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

Birdseye view of rugged wilderness mountain ranges, mirror-glass waterways to the stillness of Bathurst Harbour, capture amazing mirror-image photos of surrounding mountainous landscape, experience sudden weather changes and the excitement that brings. Explore sheltered pebbled beaches whilst enjoying delicious food provided; all this and more in one day in the Wilderness in Tassie's most south western regions. Best time to... More

The 3 day [2 night] wilderness tour allowed us to visit this very remote wilderness area in the south west which, until we discovered the Par Avion tour, we could only dream about. There are no roads in, so to see this pristine area you need to walk [about 7 days carrying everything], sail or fly. While Par Avion's day... More

We booked and traveled into the remote south west wilderness with par-avion - and the experience was unforgetable... whilst NOT cheap at nearly $1000 for the two of us, every single bit of the experience was executed with care and precision. Amazing pilots and skippers usher you through this pristine area with amazing coffee stops and lunch on remote quartzite... More

We received a friendly welcome upon arriving and our pilot Kayle gave excellent customer service. His preflight instruction was clear, take offs and landings smooth and inflight commentary top notch. An added bonus was the viewing of the ships gathering in the Derwent for the Parade of Sails. This was spectacular and we'd highly recommend this flight of 30 minutes

We had a wonderful 3 day/2 night camp experience - fantastic guides - Peter and James worked as a perfect team! Peter was incredibly knowledgable about the history, flora and fauna of the area, and his personal anecdotes from his past meetings and conversations with the original settlers was a huge bonus. Accommodation and food was good - local Tasmanian... More
