Held in Currie Harbour overlooking King Island’s picturesque harbour the Festival Of King Island brings together a bevy of great folk/blues/rock talent such as Kim Churchill, Caravana Sun, Benjalu, Shaun Kirk, Laura Hill, Simon Astley and many many more who mix it up close and personal with perhaps Australia’s friendliest bunch of folks.
Add into the mix the island’s great cheese, beef and seafood and its great surf, dive and beachcombing beaches and you are likely to find all your sensations tingling by the end of the festival weekend.
If that doesn’t convince you then there is always the 100m soap-accelerated plastic-sheet waterslide full of thrills as it weaves and cascades its way through the scrub surrounding the festival. There is also a raft race full of un-seaworthy vessels that rarely make it back to dry land, as well as a pie-eating competition not for the faint-hearted. Its all great fun, casual and relaxed.
