Southwest Wilderness Experience

Southwest Wilderness Experience

See the untouched Tasmanian Southwest in a day

The ultimate Tasmanian wilderness experience

Discover the grandeur and spirit of the Tasmanian wilderness on our Southwest Wilderness Experience. This new eight-hour tour explores the remote and harsh southern coasts and waterways of this rugged and beautiful region of Tasmania. Landing at Melaleuca Airport, we take to the water and explore the pristine waterways of The Port Davey Marine Reserve taking in Waterfall Bay and the Breaksea Islands. After a gourmet lunch featuring delicious Tasmanian produce, we disembark the vessel and explore the Melaleuca Museum and the Needwonnee Walk, a fantastic monument to the rich indigenous history of the area. Returning to the skies, we head inland over The Arthur Range, arguably Tasmania’s most spectacular mountain range. Taking in Mount Picton and The Huon Valley, we return to Hobart via Mount Wellington for a birds-eye view of the beautiful capital of Tasmania before landing back at Cambridge.

"The whole experience was first class. Booking was easy, the reception at Cambridge Airport by Par Avion staff was professional, and the flight to and from Melaluka as spectacular to say the least. We got to see a number of the extremely rare orange-belly parrots in the wild from a viewing stand and then it was off onto Bathurst Harbour for a boat tour. A great lunch was provided which was of great quality, including excellent Tasmania wines. All in all an absolutely great experience in a remote part of Tasmania that very few get to see. Absolutely spectacular country, scenery and service, and great value. Highly recommended."

A rare and remote experience I have often wondered about the SW Wilderness of Tasmania around Port Davey and Bathurst Harbour but really had no idea of the expanse and sheer beauty of this area until we joined the SW Wilderness Camp for a 2 night stay. It's hard to describe this area. It's peaceful, silent, extremely beautiful, ancient and vast. We were superbly looked after in the very comfortable permanent huts in a tea tree forest on the water. Our guides were knowledgeable and great story tellers who knew the history of the area and the characters who had lived there. We learned so much about the geology, nature, forests and waterways and had time to reflect and unwind. There were lots of stories and lots of laughs with great food and wine. A wonderful experience and we hope to come back."

"Awe-inspiring! This was an amazing experience! Flying over this spectacularly beautiful pristine wilderness was incredible. Pete was a superb guide, taking us in his boat into so many wondrous spots, sharing his passion and knowledge for this very special place. Being the only people in this magical vast wilderness was an experience we won’t soon forget."
