Overview

King Island is located approximately 80 km northwest of Tasmania in Australia and about 90 km southeast of Cape Otway on the Victorian coast of Australia. King Island, with a population between 1500 and 2000, is one of Australia’s undiscovered island retreats. Wildly rugged, windswept and attractive, it boasts over 145 km of untouched coastline, an estimated 57 offshore wrecks and a wide and unusual variety of seabirds and wildlife. This is not a tiny island, it is some 64 km long and 26 km wide.

Our Latest Intern

Dr Alex Rahel
“Hi my name is Alex, a 23 year old UTAS graduate. I was born on the North West coast of Tasmania and grew up in Ulverstone.  While still too early to tell, general practice is a career that appeals to me a lot and I feel privileged to be gaining experience in this so early in my career.   Some of my interests include playing tennis and basketball.

I also enjoy fishing and am an avid Essendon supporter.  I’ve heard so many wonderful things about King Island and I’m looking forward to exploring it for the first time.”
