I was part of the recent group to Barnbougle/King Island last week and would like to thank the pilots who retrieved my missing bag and delivered it to the Melbourne hotel. Above and beyond the call of duty and much appreciated.

Itinerary: Bass Strait Islands 2020 (4 days)
Day 1: Melbourne to Flinders Island (L,D)
Begin your four-day Bass Strait Islands air tour from Moorabbin Airport, departing at 8.00am with a flight over Wilson’s Promontory and Bass Strait en-route to Flinders Island.
Meet our expert local guide who will take you on two days’ exploration of the Island. Today’s touring includes Vinegar Hill for views over to Cape Barren Island, then Patriarch Wildlife Sanctuary to meet wombats, wallabies and Cape Barren Geese. Stretch your legs in the capital Whitemark. Reflect at Wybalenna, site of the Tasmanian Aboriginal settlement between 1833 and 1847. Learn some of the history of this island at the Furneaux Museum before arriving at your accommodation at the Furneaux Tavern for two nights. Welcome drinks and dinner together round out the day.
Overnight: Furneaux Tavern
We have completed three tours with Kirkhope Aviation. Each has been a delight with outstanding organisation, scenic flying and great company. Our latest trip to King Island was no exception. The flight, tour and catering were all spot on. We had a most enjoyable day with great photos.
