Bloody Fantastic, have been wanting to visit this area for over 50 years, was not disappointed. The flights, both in and out, were very scenic giving views of the rugged coast line and also the mountainous terrain of the area. The boat cruise of Bathurst Harbour and Port Davey was excellent, with the weather being very kind, not a breath of wind, The meals, as promised, were really gourmet and delicious. Should also mention that the pilot/guide/boat skipper was of the highest quality, very informative, passionate about his job and carried out his duties in an unhurried and caring manner. Thank you Par Avion for a wonderful experience.

We recently did the flight and cruise through the Southwest Tasmanian Wilderness and it was a complete eye opener. The flight crew both there and back were extremely professional and informative. The boat crew also made the trip entertaining and being able to serve a lovely lunch on the beach. This was at the end of our Tasmanian tour and certainly one of the highlights.

What an amazing experience! This has been the best tour we have ever done. The pilot gave an excellent commentary during the flight to Melaleuca and return. We were very lucky with the weather - being clear skies and no wind. The trip on the small boat was fantastic with an extremely knowledgeable and experienced guide - seeing the sights of Bathurst Harbour and out to Port Davey seeing the sea cliffs and kelp forests (clearly visible through the clear water). Our lunch was taken on a beautiful beach and we explored the little bay on foot. This is a must for anyone wanting to experience the true wilderness of the SW corner of Tasmania.

Tasmania's Southwest Wilderness is a truly special place, and fully deserves its World Heritage listing. Because of its relative isolation, flying in is a great way to get there - especially if you haven't got the time or the fitness to walk there. So Par Avion's trip not only gives you a bird's eye view of these amazing rugged ranges, and boiling ocean coastlines, but also gives you an opportunity to really experience this unique and beautiful place. The staff were super friendly; very knowledgeable; and a pleasure to be with on such an unforgettable experience!

Awesome experience from the great pilots to Dave and Mick and their wealth of knowledge about the area and Tasmania in general. We really enjoyed the pristine beauty of the area and the wildlife - and the clouds and occasional rain just added to the atmosphere. Great food, comfortable accommodation, and a memorable experience with epic photography opportunities. We will want to come again. Nicole and David
