Currie, Tasmania is located on King Island, a small island between the main island of Tasmania and the southern shore of Australia. It's location is in a partly sheltered natural harbor on the west side of the island, but in the past, many ships were wrecked near Currie.
The lighthouse at Currie Harbor was built in 1879, and is very unique in that it is made of iron. It was fabricated in England and then shipped to King Island to be constructed. It is still in use. There is a museum located in the keepers house.
