King Island Express (2.5 days)
Just a short hop from Melbourne, Tasmania and the islands of Bass Strait beckon visitors with the promise of rugged beauty, wilderness, adventure, history, stunning views, and fresh produce.
Carved from the treacherous waters of Bass Strait, King Island is a unique destination with plenty to see and do if you want to get away for few days.
Our King Island Express tour maximises your exploring time with two full nights and days on the island.

I was part of the recent group to Barnbougle/King Island last week and would like to thank the pilots who retrieved my missing bag and delivered it to the Melbourne hotel. Above and beyond the call of duty and much appreciated.

Itinerary: King Island Express (2.5 days)
Melbourne to King Island
A 3 pm departure from Melbourne’s Moorabbin Airport to King Island will get you a fabulous view (weather permitting) of Heads of Port Phillip Bay, as you head south across Bass Strait.
Ian Johnson from King Island Tours will be your guide for the next two days and will transfer you to King Island Wilderness Retreat at Grassy on the south-east side of the island.
With the sky transitioning through multiple pastel colours as the sun sets behind you, a pre-dinner drink on the balcony overlooking Bass Strait awaits ahead of dinner and a full day tomorrow.
Travelling with a small group to Tasmanian locations with Kirkhope Aviation was a very enjoyable 4-day getaway. This tour had the lot - great food, excellent local tour guides, stunning scenery, smooth plane ride, and a picture perfect view of the Twelve Apostles.
