Australia's 'foodie' island

17:30 AEST Sat Feb 16 2013
The mention of King Island conjures up visions of wonderful meats, creams and cheeses people find in their favourite deli. Dermott is one of those people and he decided to visit to see what else the island has to offer. From its rugged coast to hundreds of hectares of farmland, it's a relatively untouched place.

One of the islands making up Tasmania, King Island lies off the north-western tip of the state in the Roaring Forties of Bass Strait.

Dermott's first tip to get the most from your visit is to hire a car. The second tip is to tap into local knowledge. Everyone is proud of their island and keen to steer you in the right direction.

It's not set up for drove of tourists, so it’s a good place to take your own sense of adventure.
