Day 1.  Central Coast –King Island                    (LD)

Transfer to Sydney Airport for our morning flight to Melbourne.  Here we will collect our luggage and make our way to the Rex Air check-in counter for our flight across Bass Strait to King   Island.

On your arrival at King Island Airport you will be greeted by our friendly  local guide and taken lunch. As you walk about the town of Currie and stroll down to the harbour, passing the early settlers graves, you will gain an insight into the township of Currie. From the harbour we will take a short trip to the interesting Kelp Factory and seaweed industry of King Island. We then leave the road and journey along the beach to the memorial plaque of the Admiralty. From here we will visit the historical museum of King Island, which will give you an insight into the history of King Island and then onto your  accommodation.

 

Day 2. Island History & Beauty                      (BLD)

Your tour begins with a talk about the once mining town of Grassy and then onto the main port of King Island, Grassy Harbour.  Continuing south, we leave the main road and take you on an unforgettable experience, seeing nature at its best – wild peacocks, wallabies, turkeys and pheasants in their natural surroundings. Our journey takes us along the coastal sand tracks, exploring bays, coves and sweeping beaches, reaching Seal River, a photographer’s delight (which more often than not, casts mirror images of scenery), then on to Big Lake. Next stop Sealers Wall, where you will be told about the terrible tale. On route to the southern tip of King  Island, you will be amazed to see the bull kelp cast along the rugged coastline, where you will gain an insight to the kelp carters of the King Island. 

Travel to the Calcified Forest where we will break for lunch. Next stop Seal Rocks, then onwards to the tragic wreck site of the Cataraqui, Australia’s worst ever peacetime, maritime disaster. 

 

Day 3.   More Hidden Secrets                           (BLD)

Today we meander north through    country roads leading us to the tallest lighthouse. From there, a short journey will take you to the smallest suspended lake in the world, an ideal location for morning tea. Continuing on to one of the most pristine, wave action beaches you will see anywhere in Australia. Back on the coach, depending on tidal, time and weather conditions, will see us visit sites like Yellow Rock Beach, Wreck of the Shannon, Blow Hole, Sea Elephant    River, home of King Island Oyster lease, the wetlands lookout and a               comprehensive visit to Naracoopa area. Exploring further along the east coast, will see us back at our accommodation.

 

Day 4. King Island                                                (BD)

Today we discover more of the hidden secrets of the island with the afternoon free to relax around our motel and enjoy our last delicious dinner.

After dinner, there is a nocturnal tour, taking in the Fairy Penguins for those who wish to.

 

Day 5.  Return Flight to Sydney                        (B)

After a leisurely breakfast we will depart for the famous King Island Dairy. We view a comprehensive video about the cheese industry &  factory and enter the fromagerie on a cheese tasting experience.
