This is a list of sightings of alleged unidentified flying objects (UFOs) in Australia.

1966

  • The Tully Saucer Nest[1]

1978

  • The Valentich Disappearance occurred on 21 October 1978, when 20-year-old Frederick Valentich disappeared while piloting a small Cessna 182 aircraft over Bass Strait to King Island (Tasmania) after reporting a strange craft flying nearby. The disappearance generated significant press attention, both throughout Australia and internationally. No trace of Valentich or his Cessna has been found, and his description of a large, unusual object has earned his vanishing a place in UFO lore. A Department of Transport aircraft accident investigation concluded the reason for the disappearance could not be determined.

His last words were "My intentions are to go to King Island... That strange aircraft is hovering on top of me again. It is hovering and it's not an aircraft. Delta Sierra Juliet, Melbourne..."

1988
