"We spent three fabulous days exploring King Island on a 3 day photography tour with the lot. In addition to visiting breath taking locations in the Oka 4 wheel drive, to get some awesome photographic opportunities, Ian and Lucinda provided us with a complete King Island experience.Their dedication to catering for all our meals with fabulous King Island produce combined with the wealth of local knowledge made for a top weekend.  Great people, great scenery and great food, couldn't have asked for more. Greg, Val & Tony give you ten out of ten."
