Par Avion Wilderness Tours invites you to stay for three days and explore the remote south west wilderness. You will be accommodated at our luxury private camp, located in the forest, on the shores of Bathurst Harbour. This camp has no walking tracks to access and is completely exclusive to our clients.
The Southwest National Park is over 4500sq kms, and the Port Davey/Bathurst Harbour Marine Reserve is three times the size of Sydney Harbour. You will be able to take a walk in this world heritage listed area, without the usual hardship that is associated with visiting such a remote wilderness area.
Access to the Southwest Wilderness Camp is by a magnificent flight, in a twin engine Islander aircraft landing at Melaleuca. During your flight you will witness the grandeur of this lost world and see some of the icons of Tasmania’s world renowned wilderness such as Federation Peak, the Western Arthur Range, Precipitous Bluff and Tasmania’s rugged south coast.
Upon at arrival at Melaleuca, you will board a vessel to access the camp and to explore the magnificent waterways of the Port Davey Marine Reserve, with its 800 metre mountains rising from the sea. Your experienced guides will look after you, prepare your meals and give you a thorough interpretation of this spectacular wilderness area.
There will be opportunities to see the rare and endangered Orange Bellied Parrots, visit Aboriginal middens and caves, explore the remote waterways via your private boat including Huon Pine forest on the Old River and the untouched Celery Top Islands, walk on untouched beaches, see wildlife or even climb a mountain if you want to. All walks are graded easy to moderate.
This ultimate experience gives you an opportunity to see untouched wilderness, in one of the worlds last remaining temperate rainforests. You will breathe the cleanest air in the world, while staying in eco-friendly comfortable accommodation with hot showers, enjoying quality Tasmanian food and wine.
