About King Island

King Island is located in the centre of the western entrance to Bass Strait, in the path of the Roaring Forties, off the north-western tip of Tasmania,and is one of the islands that make up the state of Tasmania. The island was named after Governor King of New South Wales, whose territory at the time included what is now Tasmania.

King Island is famous for its clean white beaches, dairy farms, lighthouses and shipwrecks. It is renowned world wide for its award winning cheeses, fabulous beef, mineral water, kelp, and fresh seafood, including lobster and abalone.

King Island has been the location of over 60 known ship wrecks, involving the loss of well more than 700 lives. The ’Cataraqui’ which became wrecked here in 1845 was Australia’s worst maritime disaster. This shipwreck occurred longer before Wickham lighthouse was constructed, the tallest in the southern hemisphere.

Reid Rocks, located 12Km, just a short boat trip from the island, has a major breeding colony for the Australian fur seal. King Island has a large population of Wallabies, Shearwater rookeries can be found on the coastal hillsides, and you may even be lucky enough to see an albatrosses or sea eagle.
