You cannot call yourself a true Illawarra local unless you attend this one event that attracts visitors from beyond our shores and Australia wide. It is a true phenomenon and one that HAS to be seen to be believed!
Welcome to the best entertainment that our region offers and THE event that Parents Guide Illawarra is so proud to support - Wings Over Illawarra returns Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd May 2020.
It also just happens to offer unlimited carnival rides included with every ticket - and every ticket purchase is ALL - INCLUSIVE (oh,
unlike ummm perhaps 'other Easter shows' that leave you requiring a second mortgage!!)
As the jaw-dropping solo and formation aerobatics displays unfurl above, the spectacular display of classic warbirds and amazing vintage aircraft of yesteryear
will keep your feet on the ground. As will our Australian Defence Force as they present the best our country has to offer with loud, fast fighter jets
and huge heavy transport aircraft in this event.
Taking place at the Shellharbour Airport (formerly called the Illawarra Regional Airport), the picturesque Illawarra escarpment, this location provides
the ideal backdrop for the Wings Over Illawarra Air Show. Gates open 9am - 5pm with the Air Show from 11am - 4pm both days.
Wings Over Illawarra continues to be on the region's most popular carnival year after year! There is no better way to spend an unforgettable
day with family and friends - bring a picnic lunch and blanket and spend a day watching the action in the sky and across the grounds of the carnival...
There is something for everyone - from families, to aviation fans, to young and old. And in 2020, Wings Over Illawarra is happy to announce that your entry ticket is an all-inclusive ticket (not including your food and drinks of course!)
Entry now includes access to a massive carnival with UNLIMITED RIDES for young and old, and all ground exhibits and displays all included in the entry ticket price!
Some of the highlights of Wings Over Illawarra 2020 will be:
NSW Drone Expo: For the very first time Wings Over Illawarra will incorporate the inaugural NSW Drone Expo. The expo will feature drone racing from the Australian Defence Force and exhibitors from all sectors of the drone industry. Entry to the NSW Drone Expo is included in your entry ticket so make sure you go and experience this exciting technology!
Oz Flight Sim Expo: The only flight simulation event in Australia, this offers flight simulation enthusiasts of all ages the perfect opportunity to get up close with some of the most impressive displays and product demonstrations.
General Aviation Precinct: In 2020, Wings Over Illawarra will incorporate a General Aviation precinct featuring static aircraft displays and flying schools along with industry exhibitor sites for aviation suppliers, manufacturers and service providers. It will offer the general public an opportunity to interact with the general aviation industry, view products and ask questions. Aircraft displays will range from microlights and gyrocopters to the latest in composite sport and recreational aircraft plus of course the classics and a few of the more unusual aircraft types.
Australian Defence Force squadron aircraft on display on both festival days.
S.T.E.M day on Friday 1st May for school - more details to come!
