Airshow Travel Group Trip – Australian International Airshow: 3, 4, 5 December 2021

Join me on an escorted group-led tour taking in the centenary of the Royal Australian Air Force; 1921–2021 Celebrating 100 years! This is one airshow you don’t want to miss!

The skies above Avalon are set to erupt when the Australian International Airshow returns – with the Centenary of The Royal Australian Air Force! It’s going to be a huge weekend of high octane excitement and fun for the whole family. This once-in-a-lifetime event will bring together the largest variety of RAAF assets ever assembled at Avalon, including historical and modern aircraft spanning the 100 years of the Royal Australian Air Force. They’ll be joined by a cavalcade of civil aircraft including historic barnstormers, WW1, WW2, breath-taking aerobatics and the latest jet power from around the globe.

The team at Airshow Travel are again planning an escorted group trip to Melbourne to take in and enjoy this once in a lifetime event!

Departing New Zealand on Thursday 2nd December and spending four nights in a 4-star central city hotel in Melbourne, we’ll be visiting the historic R.A.A.F. museum at Point Cook and also taking in the 3-day airshow which includes the Friday evening fireworks and two main show days Saturday/Sunday and then heading home on Monday.
