Great stopover in KI!

It was great to visit Heidi and hear the story of her local distillation of gin and vodka!
We booked through the king island main site which was really easy to organise and pay for, and she was a great host to us while we visited the boutique distillery

Not open & no crayfish 🦂🦂🦂🦂
Apr 2018 • Couples
The Isle Providore was closed when we visited King Island. There were no signs of opening times etc etc on the doors .
So our guess it may have closed permanently as the fishermen we spoke to certainly didn’t mention it.

We were hoping to buy some crayfish whilst visiting King Island but to no avail. We even went to the crayfish fishing processors who were packing massive lobsters into crates evidently to be shipped directly to Japan.

We asked whether we could buy some but they said you have to pre order them or otherwise go to Foodworks which also didn’t have any in stock.

It was quite unbelievable that we were unable to purchase a crayfish on King Island. Luckily Wild Harvest restaurant had them on their menu.

We also found it disappointing that King Island doesn’t have a fishing co-op or a fish shop which caters for visitors. 🦂🦂🦂🐟🐟

Heidi hi, heidi ho.
Feb 2017
Brilliant piece of aged beef, with advice on how best to cook, then Heidi topped that with our lobsters, which did for dinner, lunch the next day as rolls while picnicking at Penny's Lagoon, and now back home, our own home made lobster pie for lunch. Heidi is a King Island gem.

Want Crayfish? See Heidi
Jul 2016 • Friends
We visited Isle Inspired after visiting the King Island Cultural Centre.
I was very keen to have some King Island Crayfish while I was there and had been told that I could order it either through King Island FoodWorks or Isle Inspired.
Heidi didn't have any but offered details that allowed me to contact her and arrange something the next Monday. Alas, time was against me and I did not manage to get back to her in time.
However, her desire to help was an indicator to me that she was genuinely interested in ensuring customers can get what they want.
Isle Inspired sells all that is good from Tasmania.
I spotted some delicious looking King Island Beef too - which I'll also remember for the next time I go to King Island.
A must go-to!

A great place to start with King Island
Apr 2016 • Couples
We first made contact with Heidi when we were looking for accommodation for a 6 day visit. She ended up welcoming us at the airport, arranging an excellent home by the coast, a hire car, produce and an extensive guide to the island. Nothing was too much trouble, and all her recommendations were spot on. She's a great ambassador for this wonderful community.

All King Island and Tassie Produce.
Apr 2015 • Family
Heidi is committed to offering produce of King Island and Tasmania. She is very customer focused and wants to see a satisfied tourist ( and locals) that will spread the good word of king Island, so if she hasn't got in stock what you need, ask her.
