Experience national parks through art
Parks driving boom in visitor numbers
Celebrating 100 years of national parks
King Island is famous for its agriculture, wildlife, maritime history and rugged coastlines. The island can be reached by plane travel from Burnie airport. Unusual, fascinating and mysterious is how the limestone features that make up the Calcified Forest are often described. This walk is a must for all visitors to King Island.
The calcified forest is where an ancient forest was rapidly covered by sand that has since receded.
