KING IS­LAND, TAS

Australian Geographic - - Geo Buzz -

Lo­cated 80km north-west of the Tas­ma­nian main­land in Bass Strait, rugged King Is­land has a dairy­ing his­tory that dates back more than a cen­tury and has gar­nered at­ten­tion for spe­cialty cheeses. The Roar­ing For­ties winds sweep salt and min­er­als from the ocean to the land, giv­ing rise to rich, sweet milk that cre­ates unique cheese flavours. Four­teen local farms sup­ply the dairy, which an­nu­ally pro­duces 2000 tonnes of cheese, in­clud­ing this year’s award-win­ning Black La­bel Dou­ble Brie and Roar­ing For­ties Blue Cheese.
