2019 Flinders Island Food and Crayfish Festival

PLEASE NOTE: These tickets are for the event only and do NOT include flights/accom etc

Following last year's open and shut success, this event is expected to sell out in a heartbeat! Commercial flights to the Island are all but booked up; that's where we step in! Charter flights ex Essendon/Yarra Valley for the Long Lunch on Saturday (incl overnight, fly back Sunday) are still available - call 03 9739 1211 now for details.

Places for all events are extremely limited and tickets are available on a 'first in best dressed' basis so we recommend not delaying your
purchase in order to avoid disappointment.

If you intend to book multiple tickets to the long lunch event, please note that you will be required to enter the name of each of your dining companions. In order to avoid delays in confirming your booking, we recommend that you have this information ready to go.

Capacity on the island is also limited, so we recommend booking flights and accommodation prior to purchasing event tickets.

There will be a bus available on the day of the long lunch to transport you from your accommodation to the event venue. If you indicate that you would like a seat on the bus, you will be required to enter the address of your accommodation when you purchase your ticket. As above, please ensure that you have this information ready to go in order to avoid delays.

We look forward to welcoming you to Flinders Island!

Important Information - Covid-19

As the COVID-19 Coronavirus situation continues to unfold, the well-being of all staff, students, customers and our community is at the forefront of our minds. As such, as of COB this afternoon (Tues 24th March) the Lilydale Flying School will cease Dual Flying training apart from some limited flight testing. Solo Flying and Private Hiring will continue as normal and instructors will be on hand to assist and supervise with ninety day check flights. Lilydale Airport (and Lilydale Flying School and Yarra Valley Aviation) will be continuing its other operations 7 days per week including Charter flights, Fuel Sales and Aircraft Maintenance. This all means you will still be able to take to the air!
