Enjoy an unforgettable journey to the spectacular Strathbogie Wine Region on board a vintage DC-3 aircraft. You'll spend the day in Central Victoria, in the town of Avenel, where you'll be invited to an indulgent wine tasting at Fowles Winery and a delicious lunch at the famous Harvest Home.
Meet your captain and crew at Essendon Airport and get ready to propel into the skies on a vintage DC-3 aircraft! This historic airliner was once the world's most successful commercial aircrafts in the 1930s-40s and WWII with a proud history you'll have the chance to be part of. Feel the excitement as you take to the skies and journey up north where you'll enjoy scenic landscapes of Regional Victoria as you escape the city. You'll shortly land at Mangalore Airport and be transported to your first stop at the award-winning Fowles Winery in Avenel. Here you'll embark on an indulgent wine tasting journey, where you'll sample eight specially curated wines.
Then, it's lunch time! No visit to Avenel is complete without devouring a divine meal at Harvest Home. This popular boutique restaurant is set in a heritage venue with plenty of charm, and boasts a mouth-watering modern Australian menu and bespoke drinks list. Drinks purchased on the ground are at clients cost. Whether your sitting in the French-style garden or the opulent dining room, just take the time to sit back, relax, sip on your drink and savour every delicious bite of your meal. Your DC-3 aircraft will then pick you up to enjoy one last hurrah on board and take you back to Essendon to round off an unforgettable day!

RedBalloon is your one-stop shop for experiences and curated gifts. We’re so confident you’ll love what you get from us, we’re offering this promise to you…
We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
