First of all, you fly in over a stunning coastline. Then you approach via the intersecting waterways and finally you walk up n over the hills to look down over the water. And finally as you fly out, you get to put it all together in your own 3D experiential map! But so much more than the amazingly pristine natural... More

An unforgettable experience with Par Avion, we took a mid morning helicopter fight with Greg to Bangor Wine & Oyster Shed for magnificent champagne and oysters. Great way to start our Tasmania trip. Staff are very helpful, the entire experience was smooth and professional. Definitely recommend.

The guides/ pilots are both knowledgable and friendly and are a big part of the reason why this tour is so enjoyable. I would highly recommend this tour to... More

A wonderful flight over extraordinary scenery, with a beautiful boat trip thrown in. Our pilot Dain and the whole ground staff could not have been kinder in helping my elderly parents (88 and 84!) access the plane and boat and ensuring their comfort. We look forward to our next trip! Our only suggestion is that Par Avion invest in a... More

I was given the opportunity for a photographic scenic heli flight with Par Avion. It was an awesome flight with a skilled pilot. There was not alot of location explanation, and I nealry missed Port Arthur. The flight was amazing though!! Totally enjoyed! Thanks! If you can do it, I would recommend!
