Relax by the ocean

Welcome to King Island Escapes

Our vision

In early 2006, a local had a vision of creating a location where people who were interested in nature, adventure, wildlife or somewhere to relax and recharge could visit and sample King Island at its best.  His dream project, was to be the first of its kind for King Island, and so the concept was born.

Located on the majestic west coast, Porky Beach Retreat is just 10 minutes drive from the main township of Currie. Touching down at the King Island Domestic Airport (KNS), a five minute drive will have you entering the gates of Porky, which is surrounded by coastal hills, bushes and vegetation.

You'll then enter a place of privacy where this retreat uniquely, cannot be seen by other passing vehicles. What awaits upon reaching the top of the property is a spectacular panorama and a stunning natural backdrop with awe inspiring views.

The vision is modern coastal luxury, incorporating an intelligent and thoughtful design throughout. Our mission is to offer guests the opportunity to relax in total privacy and make an experience which is uniquely theirs and share precious time with a loved one, friends and family, all whilst indulging on King Island's famous local produce and embracing the endless spectacular vistas.
