Return Details

Returns to original departure point
As you take off from the airport in Cambridge in your small plane, cruise over Hobart and the River Derwent, and follow the D’Entrecasteaux Channel over Recherche Bay to South East Cape, the southernmost point of Tasmania.

Soar over the remote wilderness area of UNESCO World Heritage–listed Southwest National Park, marveling at the vastness of its untouched setting, and touch down inside the park at the Melaleuca Inlet. After getting off the plane, enjoy the chance to see an orange-bellied parrot, an endangered species, at the Deny King Bird Hide. Then embark on a boat ride across the inlet and into Bathurst Harbour, a pristine body of water that’s similar in size to Sydney Harbour. While you soak up the fresh air, some of the cleanest on Earth, admire views of the Celery Top Islands.

Return to your plane for the flight back to Cambridge, flying over Mt Picton, Federation Peak, Huonville and central Hobart before landing at the airport to end your tour.

Full-day tour:

If you select this option when booking, you’ll spend about six hours in Southwest National Park. Lunch is included at a scenic location, a world away from the city, and you’ll enjoy brief bush walks with a guide.

Winter tour:

Operating from May to October, this half-day option shows off the park’s natural beauty in the winter months, when snow dapples the wild landscape. Lunch is included, and you’ll spend an additional hour in the park at Claytons Corner on Bathurst Harbour.

Southwest National Park
Flying over Hobart’s eastern suburbs and the Derwent River, we will make our way down the D’Entrecasteaux Channel, past Recherche Bay to Tasmanian’s most southern point, South East Cape. At this point we leave civilisation behind and enter the vast south west wilderness by following the South Coast Track all the way to Melaleuca. The magnificent Southwest National Park is the heart of the Tasmanian wilderness and contains some of the finest and most remote wilderness found anywhere in the world. On arrival to Melaleuca we'll board our tour boat for a cruise into Bathurst Harbour, an untouched waterway twice the size of Sydney Harbour. You will see the remote Celery Top Islands, take walks in the wilderness, giving you an opportunity to experience untouched landscape while breathing the cleanest air in the world. We will pick a remote location for a delicious lunch including Tasmanian produce and wine. On our return to Melaleuca, you’ll have the opportunity to explore some of the area, including a visit to see the rare and endangered Orange-Bellied Parrot at the Deny King Bird Hide, and the award winning Needwonnee walk. Late in the afternoon, we’ll board our aircraft again, and return to Hobart, flying via spectacular Federation Peak, and Mt Picton, over Huonville and Hobart city. The tour is approximately 6 hours in duration. Our price includes lunch consisting of wine and Tasmanian produce, boat trip, and scenic flights to and from Melaleuca.

This is the best thing we’ve ever done in Tasmania. The flight along the spectacular coast, the short walks, the boat cruise of Bathurst Harbour and Port Davey. Then the flight back over the Arthur’s. All first class.

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.

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.

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!
