Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

National Seniors Greensborough have now had 65 of our members enjoy a 4 day holiday with Ian and Lucinda. Many have claimed it is the best holiday they have ever had. Without a doubt it is the special experiences and the caring that Ian, Lucinda and their driver Helen gave to us all. Nothing was too much trouble and we felt as though we were special. Other reviews remind us that we aren’t so special though. Everyone feels that THEY are special.

At a leisurely pace we explored King Island and interesting commentaries took us into the lives of King Islanders, the industries and flora and fauna. The 4 wheel drives took us into places no other tours or private drivers can access.

These tours should be advertised as “A gourmet’s Delight.” What fabulous meals we were wowed with every day either at their restaurant “Wild Harvest”, out in the bush or other select locations.

Since our last trip in March we now have more members with their names down for another tour later in the year. The word keeps spreading!

You will not be disappointed if you book with King Island Holiday Village and Tours.

We had the most reward experience on our 4 day tour with both Lucinda and Ian. Their knowledge of the Island history past and present is brilliant. The knowledge of animals and the Islands industries is also spor on. Meals provide while on tour and at night at the restaurant is nothing short of master chef quality. The degustation night was stunning, all local produce. We are unable to find a fault with these two wonderful people. Glad to have met them. Thank you for a wonderful led into Christmas.

Ian and Lucinda are wonderful hosts who go above and beyond to make you feel at home. Stunning views over the harbour. Close to the calcified forest and penguin colony. Their tours are also informative and amazing if you like 4WD. They can take you many places inaccessible to most.

A few weeks ago my wife and I (we are from New Caledonia)decided on a trip to King Island as we enjoy visiting places which are not `` icon``on the world tourist maps! . So, not knowing exactly what to expect , we went for the King Island Experience package : 3 nights & 4 days all included. Those 4 days were intense, as Ian & Lucinda have a very busy program for their guests : seafood dinner (KI lobster ) , visit of the kelp factory, breath taking 4X4 sand dunes experience tour(must do), KI Muray Grey Bar B Q steak and nice red wine for lunch at the Calcified Forest(to be seen), complete description of the very important bird wildlife ,climb to the top of Currie light house, 4X4 tour of the northern part of the island, morning tea at Penny`s Lagoon, Disappointment Bay (not desappointing to us),lunch at The Boathouse in Currie harbor and much much more.
We have discovered an island which is very well looked after by its population with quite an interesting history, a busy farming economy, all of this well documented by Ian & Lucinda, who are very active professionels, who want to ensure they give you the real feel of this ``secret destination``.
Magnifique
Merci, a bientot

We stayed in the motel facility and enjoyed a very clean room with excellent heating, modern furnishings and a large comfortable bed along with a spa. The views were very rewarding – sea views and a wide vista. Ian and Lucinda as hosts were very welcoming and hospitable; our stay on the Island was all the more memorable. They provided very useful guidance and suggestions for our daily tours and our first night’s dinner at their motel was rather special and very memorable. We do hope to return again sometime to this rather unique part of Australia. A really worthwhile and enjoyable romantic vacation. Quiet and away from everything

Oh boy, I have been on a few holiday breaks, but this one would be hard to beat for me. It is not a 5 star resort, as Ian and Lucinda point out from the start on the web site, but it has what the 5 star joints can't offer. Hospitality, ripper genuine "see it all tours" from ship wrecks, history, wildlife galore, penguin tour, bird watching, lighthouse tours, so much more that you will have to come and see for yourself. The King Island Holiday Village itself is more than accomodatingly comfortable and has majic views of Grassy harbour and the Bold Head coastline.
I liked this so much that I have gone back for a second week. what a well kept secret this Island is.

We stayed 7 nights in one of the 1 bedroom spa suites. Our hosts Ian and Lucinda made sure that all went very smoothely. The accomodation is well set up with all of the creature comforts for a relaxing holiday. We arranged car hire through them as well, as a car is a must to get around the island. Grassy is on the quiter side of the island but meals at the local Club were excellent and the penguin colony is a 5 minute drive from the accomodation.
Photographically King Island is a hiden gem. The weather can affect outdoor activities so plan as we did, to not rush your stay and restfull days can then be fited in after a good day out driving around the island. Ian can organise a great 4WD full day trip down to the more remote southern end of the island and this is very much recommended. The best steaks in Oz come from KI and they have amazing local cheeses too.

We did a 2 day King Island tour with Ian & Lucinda in July this year. It was fantastic! The accommodation was mid range but fitting with King Island. Very clean and comfortable. The touring was great, Ian's knowledge of this beautiful place was second to none. He has a great character and is incredibly passionate about this beautiful place, it's people and it's future. The food is restaurant quality using local produce. We all left King Island with the thought of discovering apart of Australia that everyone should enjoy while making some great new friends! I can not recommend this experience enough!

Our trip would not of been the same if we hadn't booked this amazing tour. Ian and Lucinda put their heart and soul into your experience. The commentary provided valuable information to help you understand this amazing landscape, learning about the island's history, geography, flora, fauna and more. Ian was very knowledgeable about many aspects of the island. He's a keen and skilled photographer and was able to share tips and techniques to ensure we captured the moments and scenery before us. Ian even managed to get 3 cows to stand aligned and smile simultaneously for my photo. Lucinda and Ian prepared a tasty morning tea and a terrific gourmet bush lunch for the group showcasing the beautiful food the islanders have in their backyard.Their vision for the business and for the island were inspirin. I'm very glad to recommend this one-day trip. Definitely book. You will not regret.

Just one hour from Melbourne and you find yourself in a lost paradise. King Island is amazing. Great food, great people, wildlife everywhere, I especially enjoyed the birds. But there are parts of King Island which are hard to get to, even for the locals and that's where the 4WD tour comes into it's own. You must do it. You feel like your on another planet, the first human explorers. This place is really untouched. But the secret to a great holiday is a very very comfortable bed at the end of the day. And that's what King Island holiday village offers. A great set up.
