This is a day you will always remember - an opportunity to discover Tasmania's remote Southwest National Park by both air and land. It's an area of pristine and untamed natural beauty. In order to appreciate this special and unique part of Tasmania. I highly recommend the full-day option
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.
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.
It was outstanding, one of the best tours we ever did, spectacular scenery during the flight.
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!!!
This was a trip worth doing, just to be able to gaze upon the unspoilt areas without having to put on my hiking boots. My mother and i are still waxing lyrical about the tour and our guide/pilot/captain continually gave us as much information as we could want and remember. Thank you for an absolutely awesome afternoon.
Incredible adventure! Michael our pilot and guide did a wonderful job! The group was small and we got a chance to get to know one another. Great photo opportunities! Quiet, peaceful, beautiful. Terrific plane ride over mountains, blue/turquoise waters and white sand beaches! A must trip in Tasmania! JS
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.

This is an experience few get to see, the Park is just about as unspoilt by humans as it gets so this is one trip you must do if visiting Tas, remember to leave nothing there, to take nothing away only the memories. The whole day was great and everyone involved made it a day to remember, the knowledge of the pilot about the park, the history and the habit and how it needs to be protected was appreciated by all.
The southwest wilderness is awesome. The colours were magnificent. The tour guides were perfect gentlemen. I really felt that I was being looked after which is what a holiday should be about!
