At the western entrance to Bass Strait lies an idylic 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. From our little paradise we produce some of Australia's finest natural foods for which we are probably 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.
 
 
MYRTLE RUST DETECTED IN TASMANIA

It is important that we do not import Myrtle Rust into King Island.
So many of our natives are member of the Myrtaceae plant family and are susceptible to this disease such as gum tree, ti-tree, paperbark and bottlebrush.

If you see it, report it. DO NOT collect samples.
Take a photo, note the location, and mark the plant location.
Report it as soon as possible on the hotlline 03 6165 3785 (all hours)
