Discover the unspoilt natural beauty of King Island and experience the sights, sounds and flavours of the Yarra Valley. King Island is one of Australia’s untapped island retreats. Wildly rugged, windswept and attractive it boasts over 145 km of coastline, and a wide and unusual variety of seabirds and wildlife. The Island is situated at the western entrance to Bass Strait midway between Victoria and mainland Tasmania, being 120 kilometres or forty-five minutes flying in either direction. The Island enjoys a reputation for excellence in the production of food products. Beef and dairy farms cover the island from the northern tip to the southern end. There is a small fishing industry, mostly southern rock lobster and a small number of abalone divers working from the island. King Island Dairy and the King Island Council are the two major employers on the Island. On King Island tour the area to enjoy sensational scenery, plentiful wildlife and amazing shipwreck stories. Less than an hour from Melbourne, the Yarra Valley is a whole life experience away, offering quality local food and wine, breathtaking scenery, romantic hideaways and indulgent adventures. Our visit to the Yarra Valley includes Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and Ice Creamery, Coldstream and Coombe Yarra Valley, once home of famous opera singer Dame Nellie Melba, plus the Blue Lotus Water Garden, 14 acres of display garden with two lakes plus an area of river flats that have been landscaped with eighty small ponds filled with over fifty varieties of lotus.
