We check-in, then make our way to King Island Dairy to learn about the local dairy industry and enjoy a tasting of their renowned cheeses. Our local guide then takes us on a Town Tour of Currie, the island’s main township, to stroll the streets before returning to our hotel. This evening we dine at the motel.
