Bass Strait Islands - King Island & Flinders Island

"Wild and Woolly - Calm and Peacful" are but a couple of classic ways to describe this beautiful remote region of the southern ocean, known as the Bass Strait Islands - Flinders Island and King Island, Tasmania.

The Bass Strait Islands, are located between Victoria and Tasmania and offer visitors a unique holiday experience , that cannot be duplicated anywhere else in Australia.

Known for their fauna and produce, the islands are what remains of a land bridge between the Australian mainland and Tasmania. Holidays in this region are generally on the quiet side, with a range of activities to suit everyone. Activities include game fishing, scuba diving, long walks, tasting local produce and fossicking for the Killiecrankie Diamond on Flinders Island.

Come enjoy the great tasting beef or dairy products , that King Island is famous the world over for. Or take in the magnificent views from the lighthouse - the tallest in the southern hemisphere. There are over 60 shipwrecks off King Island, which offer great diving. Dive tours and game fishing are available. Most people fly into King Island from Melbourne and fly into Flinders Island from Launceston in Tasmania.

So if you would like a relaxing away from it all style of escape - come enjoy the relaxing Bass Strait Islands.
