'Gooney Bird' King Island Experience

Fri, 08/07/2015 - 00:36 -- webdev
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, crayfish, are world renowned. We have regular Sunday flights for lunch at Boomerang by the Sea.

What's Involved:

Check in commences at 10:00 am at our Silver Clipper VIP Lounge where light refreshments and Champagne are served prior to boarding. We board at 10:30 am for the 1 hour 10 minute flight, usually flown at low altitudes. The route takes us past the city skyline, over 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 near the main town of Currie. Their dining space is situated overlooking the Western coast, with 180 degree views of this astounding vista.

Lunch is buffet style.  Seating can be arranged as desired, with the group or individually.

After lunch the coach will take you on a tour of the Currie area and to the King Island Cheese Tasting room and Shop where temptation awaits. We then return to the aircraft for a 4.00 pm departure.
