King Island

By Discover Tasmania | King Island lies off the north-west coast of Tasmania, surrounded by a rugged coastline and full of fresh seafood, famously good produce and some of the cleanest air in the world.

King Island and its picture perfect shores. Grateful for this island home.

Fancy a round of golf on one the world's highest ranked and picturesque public courses? Welcome to Cape Wickham Links, a course of 18 holes set on 393 acres of coastal land on King Island in @tasmaniasnorthwest. And the best part? There's not just one, but two world-class golf courses on King, together with Ocean Dunes Links . Add to that the island's famously good produce and some of the cleanest air in the world, and you've got the makings of an entirely refreshing getaway. So why not stay a while and uncover the island's stories at the museum and cultural centre, or take a guided or DIY tour of the island's produce, culture, history, flora and fauna?...

Another day, or technically another night, another beautiful King Island lighthouse. The Currie Lighthouse as seen here was constructed in 1879 in England in 312 pre fabricated parts, before bring shipped to King Island in @tasmania, erected and officially switched on on 1880. Locals demanded this lighthouse be built as even after the construction of the Cape Wickham Lighthouse, maritime disasters continued to occur as ship captains mistook it for the one at Cape Otway in Victoria, causing them to make incorrect navigational decisions and crashing into the harsh and unforgiving King Island coastline. Myself and @lake_of_tranquility have now returned home after what was quite an epic trip. I head off again tomorrow morning for another little photographic expedition and over the coming weeks will have plenty more images and stories from what was quite an awesome adventure through Flinders Island and King Island . #discovertasmania #kingisland @discoverkingisland @tasmaniasnorthwest ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ Canon 5DS Canon 16-35mm f/2.8L 18mm f/5.6 38secs ISO800 ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ #exploringaustralia#exploreaustralia#australiagram#ig_australia#infinity_shotz#tasmania#tasmaniagram#global_hotshotz#magicpict#ig_shotz#GlobalCapture#igbest_shotz#lighthouses#discoverkingisland#marvelshots#nationalgeographic#ig_great_pics#wow_australia2016#hello_bluey#currielighthouse#australia#lonelyplanet#discoveraustralia#earthpics#travelstoke#tasmaniasnorthwest#traveldeeper#seeaustralia

What a huge day @tassiegrammer and I had on #kingisland yesterday. We started the day at 5:30 by driving to Narracoopa jetty on King Island's east coast for a sunset shoot, then after some breakfast proceeded to check out the 7000 year old Calcified Forest (stony remnants of a forest long gone), before driving to Seal Rocks where we shot the wild and rugged coastline of the west coast, then we moved on to the Cataraqi ship wreck monument to shoot some more seascapes, then on to Yellow Rock beach to record some drone and photographic footage of the Shannon ship wreck, the only visible ship wreck remains on King Island, and finally we ended our day at Australia's tallest lighthouse, the majestic Cape Wickham lighthouse where we were fortunate enough to witness a beautiful sunset. King Island is an amazing part of @tasmania and I am certain that this won't be my last visit to this beautiful Bass Strait island | 📷 Canon 6D with EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM | 19 mm f/16 ISO 100 8 seconds (with Breakthrough 6 stop ND filter) #discovertasmania #kingisland @tasmania @australia #️⃣#️⃣#️⃣#️⃣#️⃣#️⃣#️⃣#️⃣#️⃣#️⃣#️⃣#️⃣#️⃣#️⃣#️⃣#️⃣#️⃣#️⃣#️⃣#️⃣ #tasmania #seeaustralia #exploringaustralia #exploreaustralia #australiagram #ig_australia #wow_australia #ig_exquisite #worldbestshot #igpowerclub #igphotoworld #GlobalCapture #phenomenalshot #CanonAustralia #splendid_shotz #sky_sultans #skymasters_family #sky_brilliance #bestshotz_sky #tgif_sunset #sunset_vision #main_vision #sunset_madness_ #lighthouse_captures #sunset_stream #hubs_united #Majestic_Sunset #super_photosunsets

Gorgeous sky to wake up to this morning. #sunrise #goodmorning #kingisland #acrossthestrait #tasmania #australia #islandlife #island #remotelife #beach #sea #sky

Sunrise over Bass Strait and @tasmaniasnorthwest and a day begins at Naracoopa on King Island with @mattyson36. Located on King Island's east coast, Naracoopa is a quiet, laid-back settlement known for its beautiful beach, great fishing and local eateries - and its tranquility! Pass some time on the jetty and watch crayfish boats plying the waters while migrating whales pass by. For the active and adventurous, there are plenty of other activities to work up an appetite for the famous cheese and dairy products, seafood, beef and other fresh produce.

City of Melbourne Bay Amazing day exploring the west coast of #King_Island #Tasmania can't get over how amazing this part of the state is. You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved. - Ansel Adams #thisistassie #kingisland #summer #mnurse #nursinglife #ruralnurse #rn #picoftheday #igtravel #photooftheday #clicktasmania #escapetoearth #exploretasmania #clicktasmania #tasmania #natgeo #amazingaustralia #instatassie #inspiremotivate #whyweloveit #seeaustralia #seetasmania #discoveraustralia #discovertasmania #natgeotravel #tasmanisland #wanderaustralia #amazingtasmania #tassiepics

Marvelous morning!!! - King Island Holiday

King Island, Tasmania Australia drone video

Currie on King Island ♥ What an amazing view of Currie by @acrossthestrait. King Island is anchored in the middle of the Bass Strait between Victoria and Tasmania’s North West coast. Surrounded by some of Australia’s most beautiful beaches, King Island imports the world’s best surfers and exports produce sought by the world’s top chefs. Succulent beef, rich gourmet cheese and crayfish plucked from the Island’s crystal clear waters are but three of the delicacies you can enjoy on your visit. While the prospect of unwinding in this quiet, peaceful paradise may be what attracts our visitors it is the people they meet while here who encourage their return. King Islanders are unbelievably friendly and welcoming while also blunt and funny. If you want prissy go elsewhere. If you want pristine come to King Island. #tasmania #tasmaniagram #tassiepics #tassie #abcnews_au #clicktasmania #instatassie #instatasmania #australia #australiagram #wow_australia #nature #naturelover #instanature #amazingtasmania #amazingaustralia #discovertasmania #discoveraustralia #amazing_tasmania #amazing_australia #amazingplacestovisit #kingisland #currie #seetasmania #seeaustralia #exploretasmania #exploreaustralia #getlostnow #gosomewhere

48 hours on King Island: what to do, where to go

King Island may not be the home of day spas and banana lounges, but this windy dot of earth in the middle of Bass Strait – the body of water separating Tasmania from the mainland – is not without its seductions. It’s home to some of the most delicious beef and cheese in Australia, some spectacular …

A little touch of King Island made it into print this week. Big thanks to @iancrolfe for showing me his wonderful playground of landscapes and lovely people. Hope those crazy Chinese tourists don't run over too many wallabies when they arrive! #kingisland #tasmania #discovertasmania
