About the neighbourhood
This retreat sits on the beach front but only 8 minutes from town. Privacy is paramount. With the setting sun over the ocean and nestled amongst the dunes, sea eagles overhead, wattle birds, blue wrens, flame robbins, blackbirds and Kestrel Falcon, has its nests in front of Porky. It is a bird's paradise. Wallabies, lizards, echidnas (A family live in the driveway) are abound. Getting around A hire car is essential if you wish to explore the Island and should be booked prior to arrival. There are many places of interest around the Island and if you wish to go on a picnic. I can organise a gourmet hamper for you, maybe a southern rock lobster, some local oysters and cheese! We recommend a guided tour, a farm experience is a must.
Getting around
Car hire is a definite. Please refer to information given on both properties as verified commercial vehicles are available for rent through King Island Escapes Silver Ssangyong black leather 5 seater 4wd White Top of the range Mercedes V Class Black leather 8 seater people mover with attachable enclosed trailer for rent
