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!
This tour just was just OK , but all because of weather . Roads were closed because of snow so Mount Wellington was not accesible, me made a couple of other visits around the city of Hobart to kill some time , i bet that with the proper weather the views and location must be amazing but this day I was not able to see it..

We had a lovely morning driving to and from Hobart up to Mt Wellington. We had the perfect weather, clear blue sky and -1 on top of the mountain. Sue was our driver and guide and a lovely lady and excellent driver, would recommend this trip but you would need to take your chances on the weather, we were so lucky

Loved visiting with the animals and freedom to walk and be around them in their natural habitat.
We also enjoyed the village.
We all loved it. A great way to experience mt wellington and the awesome views,
A great afternoon. Left Hobart and drove to the wild life sanctuary. This is not a zoo. The animals are free roaming and the focus is on releasing back into the wild when possible. Really enjoyed our time here. Next we went to Richmond. This is a very charming village. Stopped for a quick lunch at the local tea house. It was delicious. Then went for a photo op of the bridge. Last we went through the jail. Wonderful time.
I had a wonderful time with this trip! Our driver and tour guide, Lain not sure how to spell his name, was wonderful! You need to take this trip!
Overall a good experience and descent with knowledgeable and friendly staff. The pickup point, however, was two blocks away and not at the indicated Elizabeth St. wharf indicated on the confirmation notice. Please update this information for future travelers.
This was super fun, and id say a must do if you and #39;re visiting Hobart. The instructors were great and broke the descend down for us so we knew what to expect along the way down the mountain.
We had a great trip into the Southwest Wilderness and it was one of the highlights of our 3,5 week tour in Tasmania. Nick and Thomas did a wonderful job and were the perfect pilots/guides/hosts!!!
It was outstanding, one of the best tours we ever did, spectacular scenery during the flight.
Really enjoyed this tour. We also saw Richmond and the prison. We happened to see a Wedding Reception photo shoot at the Gaul.
Excellent tour. Our guide Hedley was fantastic
The kangaroos were up close and personal. Also saw Tasmanian devils, koalas, and emus. The Richmond tour was primarily the gaol originated in 1825 and walking around the small village.
A great day out led by a very proficient guide.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and added greatly to our enjoyment of the day. A little disappointed there was not time to walk right around the lake - but that giives us an excuse to come back. A very enjoyable day. Thanks
A relaxing tour with interesting stops along the way. Cradle mountain was worth seeing and would have liked to have spent overnight there. The cheese factor and fudge cafe were a delight.
The people running the tour where ok, but it rained the whole time and was cold. We got soaked before we left the top of the mountain and couldn't see a thing. It was cloudy and very poor visiability. They should have canceled the trip. My husband and I where so wet and cold we couldn't finish the ride and rode down in the van.
My husband and I booked our own shore excursions instead of going on those offered by Holland America on our November 2015 NZ/Australia cruise, and this tour turned out to be the highlight of our trip. Our excellent pilot, Nick Hoyle, with Paravion Wilderness Tours, changed our itinerary to avoid some possible weather problems, and how grateful we were to have smooth flying conditions. It was a thrill to land on an open field on Maria Island, and then Nick led us on a walk and provided a picnic of hot drinks and some snacks. We got within a few feet of a calmly grass-munching wombat. On our flight back to Hobart, Nick spotted some whales, which we would have completely missed, and took us right over them for a closer look. Wineglass Bay and the cliffs of Pillar were magnificent. It was a splurge well worth it.
