Discover the indulgence and beauty of King Island with our unique day flight experience including Champagne on arrival, return flights in a classic DC3, lunch and photo opportunities abound!
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.
This is getting to the pointy end. Heights, speed, endurance or a combination of all form part of this adventure. Be prepared to be challenged both physically and mentally. Bring that 'can do' attitude and maybe a change of clothes. You're about to get a taste of Serious Fun!

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.
