A few photos from our last camp of the season. Hope someone now wants to book a winter camp . Thanks to all our guests who supported us. Cheers Greg

Every day in Southwest Tasmania offers something special, here is one of them. Taken on the last camp for the season by Guide Greg Wells.

We’ve had some cracking weather lately, perfect for that first solo flight! Private student Titus was lucky to have completed his flight recently, barely a cloud in the sky ✈️

HMAS Sydney, HMAS Brisbane, and HMAS Adelaide docked here in Hobart as seen from one of our aircraft this week. Incredible to see these Australian naval vessels in our city!

It was so cool to welcome Charlotte & Zailee to Par Avion for their @shreddingforcft challenge!

They said: “It's one of our most iconic locations as taking off from here leads you to some of the most stunning and remote areas in our beautiful state. The weather was perfect and ...the @with_jesjackson photos are absolutely gorgeous!“

That was an amazing few months filled with great moments, from mirror reflections to gales and everything in between. Thanks to all our guides, pilots, Par Avion staff and especially our guests who give us the opportunity to go to the incredible Southwest wilderness. Here are a few images I took ...from the trips this past season. Cheers Greg

Winter is coming…. ❄️ A dusting of snow on the peaks of our remote Southwest National Park — an incredible sight from above.

I recently had the opportunity to explore a bit further afield in the Southwest of Tassie. After being dropped off at Melaleuca we headed toward New Harbour along the Southwest Cape track

A stunning day at Bramble Cove with Mount Misery looming in the background. Can you see yourself here this #offseason? Book a day tour or multi-day adventure with us to the Southwest National Park — this time of year is marvellous!

Thanks to guide @allyking__ for the photo.

Well done to Kathryn Smith, who flew solo for the first time yesterday in near-perfect conditions — congratulations Kathryn! ✈️

Big congratulations to Tom Forsyth, who passed his PPL flight test yesterday! Tom is a dairy farmer from Scottsdale, working towards obtaining his commercial licence soon ✈️

It’s #WombatWednesday! Pilot Theo (@theo.idstrom) found this chilled-out fella plodding along by the side of the airstrip on beautiful Maria Island yesterday. The island is teeming with natural wildlife, and it’s a treat to be able to catch a glimpse of many different animals each time we visit.

We checked our webcams this morning for evidence of the Aurora Australis so many of you captured last night, but all we saw was beautiful sunrises 🌅

Head over to paravion.com.au/webcams to take a look for yourself

Gently boating the inlets of Bathurst Harbour, the peaks reflected in the rippling tannin-stained water. There’s nowhere quite like the Southwest.

Meet Rhys Roberts — Rhys had his first solo flight two weeks ago, and has been learning to fly on weekends as a private student. He is aiming to get his PPL and will be starting his navigation training with us soon. Congratulations, Rhys! ✈️

When one of your scenic flight guests turns out to be a professional photographer you get to share extra special images like these! @sammyjonesphotography travelled with us this week to the depths of the Southwest and snapped some cracking shots — thanks for sharing with us, Sammy, you’ve ...really captured the essence of this incredible region 📷
