2019 Flinders Island Food and Crayfish Festival

Tickets to the 2019 Flinders Island Food and Crayfish Festival Long Lunch go on sale at 9am AEDST today, 30th of January, at www.foodandcrayfishfestival.com

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!

August Covid-19 Update

Sadly STAGE 4 has forced the LFS to cease flight training for the time being. Given the fact that in the last 4 months there have been zero cases of Covid-19 transmission in Melbourne-based flying organisations, a number of appeals are being made at high level to the relevant Victorian authorities to exempt flight training from the shutdown.We are hopeful on these appeals while there also appear to be some grey areas in the STAGE 4 restrictions as published that may give us room to continue. However, we feel it appropriate to give it 5 days in the hope that a government response to clarify, one way or the other, can be elicited. In the meantime, Yarra Valley Aviation will remain open 7 days per week as per our normal operating hours for essential flying only.
