As a Member of the Rotary Club of Boronia we had the pleasure of hearing Tony's story at a recent meeting. Tony gave an interesting 'tour' of Australia, the many characters of the 'outback', the unique locations available and the first class service that is provided. The audience were spellbound by what is at our back door. If you are... More

Hi Peter, Thank you for hosting me at your recent meeting - I did enjoy sharing our story with members of Rotary Club of Boronia.

We took this tour with Nick and a small group of other travellers. We started off by taking in the wonderful views of Melbourne and the bay for approximately 30 mins before continuing to land in the Yarra Valley. The ground tour was great visiting the dairy, a brewery, a winery and then finishing off with the chocolate factory.

Hi Lisa & David, Thanks for joining us on our Yarra Valley tour last year! It was an absolute delight hosting you for the day, and we're glad to hear you enjoyed it. The Yarra Valley is our closest destination but you certainly don't have to go far to find amazing produce and wine. We hope to see you again... More

Our trip to Launceston for the races was very enjoyable. The staff were very easy to deal with and very professional but still down to earth. I certainly will be recommending them to friends, family and any interested parties. If we do the same trio next year we will certainly will make the booking through Kirkhope Aviation

Great weekend was had by the 7 participants of this scheduled trip. On land, Tony W the pilot, joined us as a 'tourist' for all meals and on day trips to view the sights and places of interest, led by a local, David. Accommodation and food were good.

Nick from Kirkhope was impressive in his attention to detail. Accommodation at King Island motel at Grassy was comfortable and the meals provided by Ian's partner Lucinda... More

Hi Bec, Glad to hear you enjoyed your recent night flight with us! It's a great time of the year for flights after sunset and Melbourne never disappoints with panoramic lights as a stunning backdrop for the CBD.

Kirkhope Aviation was our choice of airline for a 2.5 day trip to King Island. Our accommodation was reasonable, we ate like 'Kings' at the Wild Harvest restaurant, and experienced a 4WD tour to interesting and scenic locations. In retrospect we do wish we had purchased more of the delicious cheeses from the King Island Dairy. In summary, we enjoyed... More
