King Island Tour Details
It represents an undisturbed past era, with very few traces of tourism evident.
The air is fresh, the people are friendly, the produce is absolutely sensational! King Island beef, cheese, yoghurt, crayfish, are world renowned. We have regular Sunday flights for lunch at the Boomerang.
