What To Eat, Drink, See and Do on Tassie’s King Island

Kittawa LodgeNature needs no embellishing at this self-contained eco-retreat on the doorstep of the Southern Ocean. Kittawa Lodge is just a 15-minute drive from Currie, the main town on the island, but it feels like another planet – an undiscovered one at that.Hosted by Sydney escapees Aaron Suine and Nick Stead, the lodge is off-grid and on-point, offering sustainable luxury with the wild Southern Ocean just metres from the door. Tend to the French-designed fireplace, iron out kinks on the yoga mat while watching the waves roll in, or lie back in the concrete, freestanding bath as inquisitive red-necked wallabies watch at the window. There’s a selection of premium Tassie wine, whisky, gin and vodka for purchase, and platter of King Island produce will be waiting on arrival.

Taraki LodgeTake a stroll on your private beach, eye the jaw-dropping vista from the sauna or watch wildlife from the outdoor hot tub at this spacious lodge perched atop sand dunes. All four bedrooms have king beds, ensuites and luxury linen, or there’s the option to split the beds into eight singles. Have evening drinks on the wraparound deck or by the firepit at sunset, or light the indoor fire and enjoy sweeping views of the ocean from the picture windows in the living area.

The chefs in your group will love the commercial kitchen, or you can arrange a private chef to serve up gourmet meals. And if it’s golf you came for, then this place was made for you with Ocean Dunes and Cape Wickham golf courses a short drive away.
