    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, 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.

    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.

    I was given this gift from my daughters for my 60th birthday and it was one of the best gifts ever. The best part was sitting in the jump seat.

    Need better identification of Hangar position. Also as a first time visitor we would have likied to buy a memento of the trip to King island that was not food. otherwise a very memorable trip.
