Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    This is an excellent local museum, locate in the lighthouse keeper's house (1880), one of the most historic buildings in KI. It also occupies a prominent site overlooking the town and its picturesque harbour. In some ways the museum is typical of many small-town museums with many rooms overcrowded with old items. As you might expect for King Island, the information on the island's many shipwrecks is particularly strong, with two 'Shipwreck rooms' including one dedicated to the Cataraqui, wrecked here in 1840 with the loss of 399 lives. It was Australia's worst civil maritime disaster. The shed featuring the original crystal lens from the Cape Wickham lighthouse was another highlight. It was reassembled without any instructions by in its entirety by volunteers. A massive achievement I thought. The museum is definitely worth a look - for an hour or two

    Lots of hand made art and crafts in a large building on Currie Harbor. Some fabulous paintings. Includes ceramics/furniture.

    Had a lovely lady who knew how to get the most out of our tasting experience. The platter we had was a reflection of our tasting experience preferences. Had a great bottle of wine with the cheese.

    This shop is located in a building on the left hand side of the main Currie - Wickham road at Reekara if heading to Cape Wickham. It is just over 20 klms from Currie.

    The range and variety of the kelp handicrafts was quite amazing. There are some very innovative and imaginary people around. Unfortunately none of the kelp items appealed to us.

    Of more interest were the paintings, needlework, jewellery, wooden goods and other hand made items on display. We did purchase two beautifully knitted beanies.

    Worth a look if travelling to Cape Wickham.

    Heidi is such a lovely person to meet and learn from when you hear her give insight into not only her liquor making but also the island itself. It was a great experience sharing some laughs while we had some taste tests. I happily bought some delicious spirits to take home. Heidi's take on limencello in particular was fantastic and it pleasently surprised my father in law. Will visit again on our next trip to King Island.

    First time ever on King Island and on a small tour group, and oh my goodness it was AMAZING! Lucinda, Ian (and Helen) showed us all over this beautiful island and we visited all of the attractions, learning so much thanks to the vast knowledge of our tour guides. Attention to detail couldn't be faulted and every day was made special - so many highlights! It is impossible to pick one standout experience because our stay created an abundance of wonderful memories. From morning tea in a sheltered cove on the beach, beachcombing, gentle walks, 4 wheel driving the dunes, the incredible crayfish lunch, taste testing at King Island Dairy, nature, wildlife, visiting the many historical sites, and seeing the penguins returning home at night - every day was jam packed. And the perfect end to each special day was the most delicious dinner at Wild Harvest. Is there nothing that Lucinda and Ian can't do? Ian's dishes were so tasty, perfectly cooked and beautifully presented, and the ingredients all had a story to tell. Lucinda and Ian's service and attentiveness to guests was both friendly and professional. To say this trip exceeded our expectations is definitely an understatement. We had such a wonderful time and cannot thank Lucinda and Ian enough for our experiences.
