Par Avion provides air based tours from Cambridge Airport, in Tasmania’s south.
Par Avion operates nine-passenger twin-engine and five passenger aircraft into the remote and unspoilt south-west wilderness area.
You can take a half-day or full day tour or stay the night at their wilderness camp on the shores of Bathurst Harbour. For bushwalkers, Par Avion offers a pick and delivery service along with food drops. The flight to the landing strip at Melaleuca takes around 50 minutes.
Tasmania’s Southwest National Park is the state’s largest and the most remote. It is the focus of the World Heritage Area, which covers 20 per cent of the island.
The area is only accessible on foot, by boat or by air, and when you fly in you know you are entering 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.
