There are no passenger ferries to the island so you’ll need to fly, either from mainland Australia (Melbourne) or mainland Tasmania (Burnie – Wynyard or Launceston).
There are three commercial airlines flying to and from Melbourne each day. Rex departs from Tullamarine once a day, with additional flights sometimes available in the summer. Sharp Airlines fly out of Essendon Airport twice a day.
If you’re closer to the eastern side of Melbourne you might prefer to fly with King Island Airlines who depart from Moorabbin airport twice a day throughout the year. Moorabbin is in the heart of the Sandbelt so if your golfing in this area Morrabbin is a good option.
Visitors from Tasmania can now fly from both Launceston and Burnie (Wynyard) with Sharp Airlines up to two times a day.
If travelling in a group it may be surprisingly cost effective to charter a plane from a convenient location.
Air Adventure Golf and Bass Strait Golf (Vortex Air) both offer a range of golfing packages to King Island and mainland Tasmania and are highly recommended by Cape Wickham management.
