Par Avion Wilderness Camp

Take a flight of fancy

There are few so remotely wild places in the world as the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. The flight from Hobart takes you past some of Tasmania's most dramatic and spectacular mountains to the shores of Bathurst Harbour, a serene and rarely-visited bay in the island's southwest. Look out for glacial lakes, thickly forested mountains and the dramatic ridges of the rugged Western Arthur Range.

Explore world heritage wilderness

Chances are you won't see another person as you explore this magnificent and inaccessible area by boat each day. You'll stop to relax on empty white-sand beaches, hike to stunning views over water and mountains, and explore traces of ancient Aboriginal life such as middens (piles of shells discarded after meals) and a cave used to collect the ochre pigment used in Aboriginal painting.

Stalk through Celery Top Islands

The tiny and unspoiled Celery Top Islands are a world untouched, just a short boat ride from camp. Protected by water and isolation, the islands haven't seen bushfire for centuries, leaving them remarkably pristine. As you walk along the short trail through this unique patch of rainforest, you're entering a place as pure and original as any on Earth.

Hike to Mt Milner

Ringed with beaches and mountains, there's an extraordinary, untouched beauty to Bramble Cove, where you boat ashore to begin the short hike to low Mt Milner. From its summit, 186 metres (610 feet) above the sea, you get a drone-worthy view of the area and its web of waterways.

Relax in style

The exclusive Par Avion Wilderness Camp is sprinkled through rainforest on the shores of a lagoon tucked into a corner of Bathurst Harbour. The yurt-like timber camp huts sit off the ground and offer ultimate privacy. Each one contains a queen-sized bed (or twin beds) and views up into the canopy of the World Heritage rainforest that encases the camp. Waking to perfect lagoon reflections of Mt Rugby, the highest (744 metres or 2540 feet) and most striking of the mountains around Bathurst Harbour, is unforgettable. For three glorious days, this is your home in the wilderness. 

Indulge in local tastes

The camp contains a partially open-air kitchen and dining room, set within the rainforest. Meals are included and have a strong focus on Tasmanian produce - including local salmon, cheeses, berries and olives - to satisfy those sea-air appetites, with Tasmanian wines and beers included in your stay
