King Island Kelp Craft is located in the Reekara Community Complex, which is the former Reekara Primary School building. With the support of the community, the local Lions Club stepped in with an initiative designed to preserve the building by utilising it as a Community Complex. The property remains open for functions, events and shopping for creative items in our quaint store.
