Located in Bass Strait to the north west of Tasmania, King Island is stunningly beautiful. The island's three main towns of Currie, Grassy and Naracoopa are friendly and relaxed. They offer a wide variety of good coffee shops and restaurants serving some of the Island’s world-famous produce, including succulent beef, rich gourmet cheese and crayfish.

The rest of the island is a paradise of picture-postcard landscapes, diverse wildlife, pristine beaches and excellent surf breaks. King Island also boasts two world-class golf courses, Ocean Dunes and Cape Wickham, both of which are consistently ranked in the top 5 in Australia, and it has a proudly independent community with a rich history.
