Improving Healthcare in Australia

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.
