Par Avion Wilderness Tours

Tasmania's Southwest National Park is the State's largest national park and the most remote. It is the focus of the World Heritage Area, which covers 20% of the Island. The area is only accessible on foot, by boat or by air and when you enter this area you know you have travelled into an ancient Jurassic world. Southwest National Park is dominated by jagged peaks and densely forested valleys, which open into button grass plains. The area faces the full force of the Roaring Forties, and includes an enormous waterway Bathurst Harbour, which opens into Port Davey and together they are larger than Sydney Harbour. Walkers taking the South Coast Track, which goes from Scotts Peak Dam to Cockle Creek, are walking landscapes formed between 200 million and one billion years ago. Par Avion offers you various ways to explore this amazing area short scenic flights, day tours or an overnight stay.
For bushwalkers Par Avion offers a pick and delivery service along with food drops.
Aircraft are four-or-six seater fixed wing with plenty of window space; the flight to the landing strip at Melaleuca takes around 50 minutes.
