Located in the middle of the Bass Strait between Victoria and Tasmania’s North West Coast, King Island is home to unrivalled beaches, rugged coastline and world-famous produce.
The island’s two 18 hole seaside golf courses, Ocean Dunes and Cape Wickham, are ranked among the best in the world and offer spectacular views. There is also a 9 hole course found in the heart of Currie.
King Island produce is sought by the world’s top chefs and exported across the globe. From gourmet cheese and dairy products to succulent beef and crayfish plucked from the island’s crystal clear waters, you’re guaranteed a taste explosion when visiting the local eateries and farm gates.
From Australia’s tallest lighthouse to abandoned shipwrecks and a 7000 year old Calcified Forest, the island offers adventure and discovery at every turn with nature walks, exotic and unique wildlife, surfing, diving and deep sea fishing.
The main town and cultural hub on the island, Currie, is home to the King Island Arts & Cultural Centre which regularly hosts exhibitions and workshops.
For history buffs, the King Island Historical Museum tells the legendary stories of shipwrecks and the adventures of the early pioneers. The museum is located in the old Lighthouse Keeper’s Cottage in Currie.
