ABOUT THIS REGION King Island is located in the Roaring Forties of Bass Strait, off the north-western tip of the main island of Tasmania, about half way between Tasmania and the mainland state of Victoria. The southernmost point is called Stokes Point and the northernmost point is called Cape Wickham. There are three small islands surrounding King Island, namely New Year Island and Christmas Island situated to the northwest, and a smaller island called Councillor Island to the east. King Island is surrounded by rugged coastline and full of fresh seafood, famously good produce and some of the cleanest air in the world. This is a destination for foodies who want to get close to the source and travel far from the rest of the world. Uncover the island's stories at the museum and cultural centre in the town of Currie or take a guided or DIY trail of the island's produce, culture, history, flora and fauna. It's quiet and easy going here, but there's something interesting at every turn – from a lighthouse and offshore shipwrecks to the island's great nature walks and unique wildlife, including the elusive platypus and rare orange-bellied parrots. Surf's up for serious board riders and kite surfers and divers, with plenty of other ways to work up an appetite before sampling the island's famous cheese and dairy products, seafood, beef, honey and fruit and veggies at a farm gate or eatery. Catch dinner on a charter boat or pick up a picnic hamper for an alfresco feast, King Island-style. Food is king here, and the island's annual Long Table Festival puts the island's fresh produce front and centre. And don't forget the cheese. Accommodation includes everything from campsites to cute B&Bs and friendly hotels. King Island is 80 kilometres north-west of mainland Tasmania, accessible by air from Melbourne, Launceston and Burnie–Wynyard.
