One Day Tour
Departs 9am, returns 3.30pm/4pm – Full Day Touring
The journey starts at King Island Wilderness Retreat, Grassy, prior to departure at 9 am in one our purposely-built 4WD all-terrain vehicles guided by locals that share
their knowledge of Fauna, Flora & History.
We leave the road network and climb the pinnacle sand dunes to the east and discover the picturesque bays and coves not seen by the normal visitor to King Island. It is here where we break for the traditional morning tea. Hugging the coastline, sighting shorebirds and learning about the 5th generation farming family of the Bowlings.
Onwards to Seal River, following its mirror images cast in its tranquil setting and viewing gliding swans and inland waters. Onto Big Lake, that takes us on a turn in direction, tracking to the West coast. Destination Seal Rocks Reserve and of course the 7000-year-old Calcified forest. Within this location, we break for a white tablecloth lunch. A true paddock to plate experience.
After lunch, our journey carries us further south. Broadening your knowledge of our early history, sealers, lighthouses, kelp and its harvesters, all at the cold face that has weaved the fabric of Island life. Our journey will take us to the most southern point. An opportunity to explore flotsam & jetsam on the beach.
From here we journey back to the King Island Wilderness Retreat at around 4 pm.
We guarantee that you will be talking about your experience with your friends long after your visit to King Island.
