The Muster’s major draw-card, the ‘Aviair Helispirit Kimberley Moon Experience’ continues, deservedly so, to receive international attention and acclaim. Staged at Celebrity Tree Park, the ‘Aviair Helispirit Kimberley Moon Experience’ is attended by celebrities, politicians and business leaders alike. Attracting over 5000 patrons, including 625 guests enjoying a 5 star concert and dining experience within the Kimberley Fine Diamonds Dinner, this truly is a unique and unforgettable experience – a place where city and country folk meet, mingle and dance under the stars.
