That heartbeat you hear is the surf.

Those lush pastures are the key ingredient in King Island's renowned produce.

And those winds are just part of the challenge of one of the most memorable rounds of golf of your life.

Settle into a luxury stay on a remote slice of island coast. Dine heartily in a restaurant with no food. Tee off across the ocean on two of Australia’s greatest golf courses. Ponder the ocean’s power above the site of a shipwreck. Paddle into one of Australia’s great surf waves.

Favoured by nature and flavoured by some of the country’s best farmland, this is truly the king of islands.

Best of King Island

The activities

With ocean views like those on Cape Wickham and Ocean Dunes golf courses – both ranked among the top 20 courses in Australia – good luck concentrating on the tee. The surf that rolls into the island has also been rated among the best in the world.


The produce

Stock up on the island’s cheese, beef, gin and beer, grab a crayfish pie and prepare for a DIY feast on the shores at the colourful and quirky Restaurant With No Food.


The walks

Wander among crazy limestone features in a calcified forest, trace a path above the island’s tallest cliffs on the Copperhead trail, or simply stroll the sands at Martha Lavinia Beach to a soundtrack of surf.


The power

The ocean is life on this island, but it’s also been death. Follow a trail of shipwrecks around the battered shores, and witness the fury of the sea at Seal Rocks, where cliffs plunge more than 60 metres into the Southern Ocean.
