Experience the Produce!
Experience the how! Tasting your food or drink is only half the experience. Whether it’s from the paddock to your plate, from the ocean to your table or rain water and botanicals to your whisky glass, King Island show cases the how and where. Learn the craft of King Islands produce from where it is sourced by one of the many produce experiences the Island has to offer.
