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, yoghurt 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.
The dining space is situated overlooking the Western coast, with views of this astounding vista. Lunch is buffet style, with an emphasis on local King Island fare. Seating can be arranged as desired, with the group or individually.
After lunch the coach will take you to the King Island Cheese Factory where more temptation awaits. We then return to the aircraft for a 4.00pm departure.
Flights run on scheduled Sundays, and are subject to minimum bookings.

Julie was so helpful, efficient and provided great customer service in a wonderful, natural way.. a refreshing change. The whole team are knowledgeable and treat everyone really well. Mike's description of the flight was humorous, insightful and placed everyone at ease in flying in the older style plane.
I would thoroughly recommend this trip to King Island. From the "hostie" Julie all the way to the pilot and the bus driver on the Island and the food at the restaurant - I couldn't fault anything. 10 out of 10.
I would recommend this adventure to anyone
We both had a Fantastic day starting with Champagne and ending with cheese, just perfect.
The staff at Short Stop really made it a special day with their enthusiasm and professionalism. This was a definite bucket list item.
Great trip, the staff were fantastic and the lunch magnificant. It was a great present. BTW I like the idea that the purchase could be swapped. I didn't want too however I will buy adventures for family members and they can have the option
Fabulous day trip to King Island on the DC3. Staff very professional, aircraft was a very interesting experience, and King Island was beautiful, a real step back in time. Lovely lunch at the Boomerang overlooking the sea, would recommend to anyone looking for something a bit different.
Julie the air hostess on our flight was absolutly amazing and nothing was too much for her.
Brilliant day and would recommend to anyone who is willing to listen. Passionate, helpful staff.
