Attendees should dress appropriately for this outdoor event, with plenty of sunscreen and hats for warm days as there is little shade. Ear plugs are available on-site, but bringing your own for younger patrons may be necessary. Picnics can be brought in; however, alcohol is not permitted. There will also be plenty of food and drink stalls inside the venue where you can purchase lunch and a cold drink. If you intend to sit and watch the flying displays, you can bring your own chair.
Public Transport Victoria offers transport to and from Avalon Airport throughout the Australian International Airshow. For those driving, use the Princes Freeway to get to the airport from Melbourne, where you will be directed to the ample parking space, which is a short walking distance from the airshow entry point. Also, why not stay close by in any nearby accommodation choices.
The Australian International Airshow will deliver one of the most exciting and diverse flying display programs ever seen in Australia.
