King Island

© noheadimg

Some 90 km off Tasmania's northwestern coast, in the Bass Strait, lies the island of King. The seas around the island have claimed countless ships over the years and the wrecks are very popular with divers. In the past, the island's populations of seals, sea elephants and mutton birds were nearly exterminated by the islands' settlers, but fortunately the animals are now protected and their numbers once again increasing.

King Island is noted for its dairy products, in particular its Brie and cream. Accommodation is available on the island.
