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.
