King Island Express (2.5 days)

Just a short hop from Melbourne, Tasmania and the islands of Bass Strait beckon visitors with the promise of rugged beauty, wilderness, adventure, history, stunning views, and fresh produce.

Carved from the treacherous waters of Bass Strait, King Island is a unique destination with plenty to see and do if you want to get away for few days.

Our King Island Express tour maximises your exploring time with two full nights and days on the island.

Or, if you have an extra couple of days up your sleeve, our four-day Tasmania and Bass Strait package includes Flinders Island, Strahan and the wild beauty of Tasmania’s west coast, plus King Island.

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.

Itinerary: King Island Express (2.5 days)

Day 1

Melbourne to King Island

A 3 pm departure from Melbourne’s Moorabbin Airport to King Island will get you a fabulous view (weather permitting) of Heads of Port Phillip Bay, as you head south across Bass Strait.

Ian Johnson from King Island Tours will be your guide for the next two days and will transfer you to King Island Wilderness Retreat at Grassy on the south-east side of the island.

With the sky transitioning through multiple pastel colours as the sun sets behind you, a pre-dinner drink on the balcony overlooking Bass Strait awaits ahead of dinner and a full day tomorrow.

Day 3
KIRKHOPE 02
We had a marvellous trip to Flinders and King Islands and Tasmania. Flying on a small plane is so much fun. We all loved the birds eye view of Wilsons Prom and beyond, Flinders Island, north west Tasmania, King Island and flying over the heads and over Port Philip Bay on the way home.
