    Due the the weather conditions Par Avion kindly changed the trip to Gordon River Explorer West coast tour. Even in the wet and grey conditions we had a marvellous time. Fabulous pilot Dan managed the conditions and the tour boat with premium seats was excellent. Par Avion do a wonderful job show chasing the beauty of Tasmania.

    Absolutely the best tour ever! Had a wonderful time! Was lucky enough to be part of a very small group, the day was Perfect allowing us to have great view of the rugged untouched wilderness, our Pilot James was very friendly, was also air captain on the boat ride once we arrived in Malaleuca, the air so pure! In one word. - Majestic! I felt privileged to have been able to visit such a pristine, beautiful place.

    The tour is great!
    I was assigned to sit next to the pilot during the flight, the view is particularly great at this seat.
    I enjoyed the scene at Southwest National Park and the arrangement is well.
    However, I have deducted a star for the pick up arrangement. The car has been lated for 45 minutes, which is unacceptable.

    This is the most amazing tour we have taken. Southwest National Park is only available by air or hiking for a week, so it is pristine wilderness. The flight was a great way to see the area and gain access to the Melaluca river. The river was also very scenic. All the tour guides were friendly and helpful. The food was excellent too. We were able to schedule a flight from Syndey in the morning and return the same night. This tour is pricey, but well worth the cost. It is a tour not to be missed.

    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.

    Fabulous tour. Breathtaking views of a vast pristine area. Our pilot was wonderful!

    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.

    Highly recommended!

    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.

    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!!!
