    King Island Fly In

    King Island holds a special place in our hearts, it represents an undisturbed past era, with very few traces of tourism evident - the air is fresh, the people are friendly, the produce is absolutely sensational! King Island beef, cheese and crayfish are rightly world renowned, while what people don’t know is that the King Island Bakery pies are to die for!

    Regular Sunday trips commence at 10:00 am at our Silver Clipper VIP Lounge with light refreshments and Champagne. Jump on board the DC3 at 10:30am for the 1 hour 10 minute flight, usually flown at low altitudes past the city skyline into Port Phillip Bay, through the Heads and on to King Island. On arrival passengers are met by coach and transferred to ‘Boomerang by the Sea’, located in Currie.

    Lunch is taken overlooking the Western coast, with views of this astounding vista. Seating can be arranged as desired. 

    After lunch the coach will take you on a tour of the Currie area, a stop in the town of Currie and the King Island Cheese Tasting Room and shop.  You will also go for a leisurely walk after lunch from the Currie lighthouse down to Currie Harbour weather permitting.

    Loved our day on the DC3. The only thing I could recommend is to have a more stable set of steps to get on/off at King Island. It was quite an effort to get my father in law up & down these. Overall it was wonderful.

    The Adrenalin voucher was a gift f service from my employer and the adventure selected was done over the internet, so I haven't really had any dealings with the Adrenalin staff.

    Right from the start, our trip to King Is.was one of the most relaxing experiences we have had. From the welcoming champagne and the laid back manner of the staff to the wonderful DC3 plane ride with the 1940's music and the interesting guide from our wonderful pilots and hostess we felt totally at ease. A fabulous day. Thank you.
