Shipwrecks of King Island
(0 reviews)  

This book tells the story of the many shipwrecks on the shores of King Island, off the north west coast of Tasmania, along with the lighthouses that eventually made shipping less dangerous, and the comparatively safe havens of King Island's harbours at Currie, Naracoopa and Grassy.

The chilling record of King Island's shipping disasters - Neva, Cataraqui, British Admiral, Blencartha - testifies to the dangers of navigating the western end of Bass Strait, fraught with rough seas, strong tidal currents and treacherous reefs off King Island.
