At the western entrance to Bass Strait lies an idyllic place known as King Island. An island rich in history, with shipwrecks, lighthouses and jagged reefs, bountiful with long stretching sandy beaches and lush green pasture. This little paradise produces some of Australia’s finest natural foods for which they are best known including beef, cheese, crayfish & abalone, yet there is more to this 64km long by 27km wide stretch of land than first meets the eye. Windswept and rugged - beautiful scenery with a fascinating history! Join us for a wonderful short getaway to beautiful King Island.
