Festival of King Island

The Festival of King Island (FOKI) is an annual musical festival taking place in the beautiful natural amphitheater of Currie Harbour.

With a wide range of musical styles (folk, blues, country, rock, electric, jazz) the event is very much a community celebration that attracts Australia’s top musicians such as Deborah Conway and Willy Zygier, Dave and Brad (Hoodoo Gurus), Fanny Lumsden, Andrew Swift, Kim Churchill, Boo Seeka, The Getaway Plan, Brian Ritchie (Violent Femmes), Shaun Kirk and many more.

FOKI is family-friendly, foodie-friendly… just enormously friendly! You’ll arrive as a visitor and leave as part of the community already planning your next return. 

Freycinet Marine Farm

Pop on the waders and head into the water to farm and shuck your own oysters straight from the ocean with Freycinet Marine Farm. Nothing beats an oyster this fresh, particularly when paired with a glass of local east coast riesling. Julia and Giles Fisher and their crew have been serving up their local oysters and mussels alongside other local seafood since 2005. Drop in to the rustic ‘deck’ and treat yourself to some farm-grown oysters, either natural or in a multitude of styles.
