King Island Accommodation CottagesKing Island Birds

‘A  Slice  of  Paradise’

King Island is a real haven for bird life with about 188 species at last count, (but still counting) flourishing on the almost deserted island, some species are endemic to King Island and Tasmania.Orange-bellied-Parrot

The great attraction for birders is the relative small size of the island on which to find so many birds, only – 65kms x 25kms of farmland, bush and beach.

About 1500 souls populate this beautiful isolated jewel in the crown, and only a tiny tourist influx, the real population is the 500,000 odd wallabies bouncing about the place eating grass grown by increasingly frustrated farmers

Other wildlife include Echidnas, Platypus, Deer, Penguins, Possums, Snakes, Blue Tongues etc, Whales and Dolphins; there’s also miles of deserted unspoilt beaches to explore and snap away at the sea and shorebirds.

King Island is truly and uniquely an exceptional destination.
