A mixed bag of the many photographs taken today as we travelled around the north and northwest of King Island.
A little monochrome treatment for Currie lighthouse which operated from 1880 to 1989. The other building, now the King Island Museum, was the lighthousekeeper’s residence. Shipwrecks were common back in the day. The 40 degree latitude runs across King Island. It’s not hard to see why the Roaring Forties were named.
A bus and a plane brought us to King Island yesterday. Here are some of the coastal features and fauna around Sea Elephant Bay, Grassy Bay and Currie on the west coast of the island.
Friday was back to Hobart via an old open cut mine near Queenstown, man-made lakes and natural grasslands and some national park action including a walk to Nelson Falls and a glimpse of Lake St Clair and Cradle Mountain.
