The cost per person starts at $160 at based on a 3 person shared flight. Variations occur where either the flight or farm tour components vary from standard.

One particularly neat attraction you might like to fly-over either on the way to the farm or on the return journey is Iandra Castle near Greenethorpe. A picture of the castle is below. (Photo credit Melissa Chambers from All Around Oz).

Flying time from Cowra to the farm (one way) is a tad over 20 minutes.

Oh … and while we’re still on the subject of Cowra … if you’ve not seen it and you’ve got 20 minutes to spare we recommend a visit to the Cowra Visitor Information Centre (VIC). They’ve lots of information about local attractions, events etc. … and the hologram which runs regularly at the VIC about the WWII Japanese breakout from the local Prisoner of War camp is top-notch.
