Bass Strait Islands 2021 (4 days)

Carved by the treacherous waters of Bass Strait, Flinders Island and King Island are unique destinations unto themselves, with plenty to see and do.

Sparsely populated, the islands hold great natural beauty with long sandy beaches, huge lichen-covered boulders, lagoons and rugged mountain ranges.

On this four day discovery tour, experience the remoteness, rich history and delicious local produce that make these islands so special.

Our pilot made every effort to ensure that we had the best views possible and also provided us with loads of information as well as many entertaining stories. And the food and accommodation were a delight, a true "foodies" experience.

Tour Inclusions

Itinerary: Bass Strait Islands 2021 (4 days)

Day 1

Day 1: Melbourne to King Island (L,D)

Departing Moorabbin Airport at 8.00am, head west for a stunning scenic flight over the 12 Apostles on the way to King Island.

Hop on your purpose-built 4WD vehicle, guided by a local, for a Hidden Southern Experience tour. You’ll discover bays and coves not generally seen by visitors as you traverse private property and, in some cases, go off-road.

Visit the 7,000-year-old Calcified Forest, where a short walk will work up an appetite for a white tablecloth paddock-to-plate lunch, including wine, local cheeses and fresh crayfish when in season. Learn of the island’s early history, sealers, lighthouses, kelp and its harvesters.

Journey to the most southern point of the island before arriving at your hotel. Relax with your fellow travellers and a pre-dinner drink before an evening meal at the wonderful Wild Harvest restaurant.

Overnight: King Island Wilderness Retreat
