It took me a while to get a hang of the bike. But once I did it, it was thrilling to decent Mount Wellington with these guys. Very nice organised.
What an adventure tour! Our guides for the day Hugh, Kendall and James were absolute professionals. From piloting the planes, providing insightful commentary, driving the boats and providing us with an amazing morning tea and gourmet luncheon, this tour really stands out as one of the best natural experiences anyone could possibly wish for. Outstanding, professional and memorable.
This was really great enjoyed the tour great guide loved the bike ride Just thought they could have included a bottle of water after the tour which dosant cost much to supply and a nice end to the tour
This tour is very much at the mercy of the weather. On a clear day the views are fantastic and you're likely to have a long walk around the lake though there's not enough time to climb the mountain. On a bad day the mountain will probably be covered in cloud and you'll spend most of your time in the various visitor's centres and lodges. However whatever the conditions you're likely to see several varieties of wild Australian marsupials. Takes several hours each way to get there which includes a number of photo stops and a stop at a cheese factory, but within Launceston the hotel pickup and set down are reasonably quick due to the town's small size.
Fabulous tour. Breathtaking views of a vast pristine area. Our pilot was wonderful!
Too quick. Will go again on next Hobart visit.
This tour was excellent, although bikes probably needed to be checked for safety before they left. ONe of my group is a professional cyclist and the 2 bikes they were using had faulty brakes
Maybe just a better maintenance, but tour and ride and guide excellent
Amazing day tour. Cradle Mountain lived up to its reputation. It even snowed on us for a few minutes. So excited over that. We had only a few on the bus and our tour guide knew his stuff too.
This was a great way to see Hobart from the top of the mountain and a fun ride down. Staff was really friendly and tried to accommodate us going all the way to the top since there were recent road closings due to icing on the road. Overall a great experience!
It was amazing to get to visit Cradle Mountain. And the weather was very kind to us the day we went, as it has been raining and windy. I would love to go back and do some trekking and take in the beautiful surrounding again. Big thank you to our guide Headley, you made my Launceston trip complete.
Awesome way to see mt Wellington, racing down the hill was excillerating. The off rode part was a little challaging but our guide was supportive and helpful
the group arrived at cradle mountain were there was a cycling event being held, a shocker of a day raining fog ect by the time we arrived at the mountain blue sky's an encouraging sign. the trip itself was hurried we only saw half of what was offered.
Fantastic tour guides and awesome bike ride. This is suitable for all bike riding levels.
Great fun, and catered for those of us who were a bit nervous and those who were confident participants. Good quality bikes and top notch guides. Rug up as its cold at the top.
Good views and had a perfect weather and saw some cute wombats.
I was a bit worried about doing such a big downhill ride, but the guide and bus driver were great. It was very well run so that there was no pressure to go faster than you wanted to go and the more confident/adventurous people got the chance to go as fast as they liked and do the off road riding. The mountain was amazing - cold, rainy and foggy at the top but clearing up as the ride progressed. The bikes and gear were well maintained. I really enjoyed the afternoon.
Amazing trip and highly recommended. The tour guide, Susan, was hilarious and informative. The Richmond jail was super creepy but only because it so authentic. And how do you not want to feed kangaroos and pet all the animals?
According to plan and good guide
very beautiful place, something must do in Launceston. we had a great day.
Very enjoyable day with Par Avion's Winter tour to the Southwest Conservation Area. 3hrs in the area doesn't sound like much but it's more than enough if you're after an unique and non-strenuous day trip out of Hobart with amazing sights and the opportunity to breathe some of the world's freshest air.
Professional, knowledgeable and capable guide and friendly service from the owner through to his staff. Hotel pick up/drop off also provided.
Headley did his best to keep us entertained on a very wet day.
This was a delightful trip, flying over some of the most beautiful landscape I've ever seen. Our pilots were informative and cheerful, and we enjoyed the flights, the boat time, as well as the small bit of hiking. We couldn't have asked for a lovelier day! Thanks to everyone.
This tour was amazing!
