Whatever tour you choose with Par Avion it's garentted to be well worth it. We took part in the Southwest World Heritage Tour to witness an amazing part of the world. Although what made the journey so much better was the wonderful host/pilot/skipper/tour guide/barista, Michael. From booking and check-in to the very end everyone at Par Avion were pleasant and...

Amazing trip. Enjoyed every moment. Pristine environment. Breathtaking scenery. Sensational flight, over some of Southern Tasmania's most remote areas. Our pilot, boat captain & chef Kendall ensured we had the best day. Very knowledgeable of the whole area. Thank you Kendall & Par Avion Tasmania 😀

We took the full day tour flying from Cambridge to just north of the Frechinet Penninsular. We were picked up by Duncan who is the owner/skipper on Frechinet Boat Tours for 4 hour boat cruise. The scenery was magnificent with whales, rare Australian seals and albatrosses. Then a flight down the coast over Tasman Island to home. What we saw... More

We enjoyed our 9 hours or so with Par Avion a few days ago. We flew out of Cambridge in a 6 seater Piper and into Strahan. The flight was very comfortable and the views were great, although we did have a cloudy day. We transferred at Strahan to the Harbour Master from Wilderness Tours. What a wonderful experience. The...

If you are in Tasmania this trip is a MUST - this is simply the BEST way to experience the wildlife and nature and to learn about the history of this beautiful place. The staff are very knowledgable and professional - our pilot Michael was experienced and made our group feel very safe. Not only were his piloting skills off... More

A brilliant day, very well executed by Par Avion, and in particular by their pilot, marine captain and chef Kendall. Like other reviews, a brilliant day, well worth it, and the weather was very kind to us.
