Naracoopa

Located on King Island's East Coast, Naracoopa is a quiet, easy going settlement known for its beautiful beach, great fishing and local eateries.

Watch crayfish boats plying the waters while migrating whales pass by.

There's great walking, snorkeling and fishing at nearby Sea Elephant Bay, with safe swimming at Fraser Beach.

A little further afield, walk to The Blowhole, explore offshore shipwrecks and meet the island's unique wildlife, including rare orange-bellied parrots.

Surf's up for serious board riders, kite surfers and divers, and there are plenty of other activities to work up an appetite for the famous cheese and dairy products, seafood, beef and other fresh produce.

Local eateries serve up all this and more, while fishing charters offer the chance to catch you own dinner.

Or if you're feeling lazy, pick up a picnic hamper for an al fresco feast, King Island-style.

Accommodation is available at holiday rentals, B&Bs, guesthouses and campsites.

King Island is 80 kilometres north-east of mainland Tasmania, accessible by plane from Melbourne, Launceston and Burnie–Wynyard.

Local tips

  • Enjoy a picnic hamper on the foreshore
  • Fish off the Naracoopa jetty
  • Take an easy 40 minute return walk from the jetty to Fraser Bluff and spectacular views along the coast.
