Worth a visit and even better spend some time by BYO lunch. It's a great location with views across the harbour. Seating both inside and outside depending on weather.

This boathouse was apparently built in 1871 initially to store the lighthouse keeper’s boat. Subsequently it was used as a school room and a munitions store before falling into disrepair. We have read where it was restored by a local woman who decided to turn...it into a restaurant of sorts in that it doesn’t serve any food. You get to take your own food and drink and can use the boathouse as a venue for the cost of a donation. The boathouse is unmissable being painted a bright yellow with colourful pictures on the outside, lobster pots in the garden and all sorts of bric-a-brac and furnishings inside - very quirky. We stumbled across it after walking around the headland from the golf course at the bottom of the Currie lighthouse. The road stops at the boathouse and there is only a walking/bike track from there to the wharf. It was open so we were able to look inside.More

A quaint little spot where you take your own food a drinks and enjoy the view over Currie Harbour. We picked up some items from the King Island bakery and enjoyed a relaxed lunch at the outdoor tables. There are local arts and crafts for...sale and an honesty box system in place. Great idea and location.More

Nice to visit, very querky, based on trust. Incredible views right on the water. Takes you back to mid 20th century.

Once we found it and booked it and arrived, it was great. Finding it was tricky because there is a property close by with the same advertised street number, and neither the harbour or the Boat shed are easily visible from where we were staying...(which was really close). But - hold the faith and follow Lighthouse street all the way to the end - and there she is. While it’s a fairly casual arrangement, I tried to book because I had needed to make bookings at other places. Anyway - that worked out too, but I probably didn’t need to worry, A lovely spot to spend some time - we got brekky from the Currie bakery and took it there - perfect. They have plates and cutlery too (wash up before you go). It works on a donation system - pop some cash into the honesty box. They have great local artwork for sale (ranging $50 - $300) - again pop the cash in the box (no direct debit/eft available)More

We booked the boathouse "restaurant with no food " , took our lobster and hamper and had a lovely evening. When we arrived, the fire had been prepared for us to light, and music was playing. It was a perfectly relaxing dinner looking over the...water and then watching the fire. Thank you Carole for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful boathouse.More

What a uniquely King Island experience! We booked, we bought steak and salad locally, grabbed some drinks and wine and turned up to our very own waterfront ‘restaurant’. A couple of local children turned up and played a tune on the old piano, then chatted...to us about their happy life on King Island. It was one of the more enjoyable places we ate out at around Currie - it just took a little pre-planning. Artwork and bull kelp bowls or serviette holders can be purchased here. A donation is requested for the use of The Boathouse and a fee for the use of a BBQ. What a brilliant place for a picnic.More

Hard to find but an interesting location ad great with a takeaway coffee or picnic. Would be difficult to park with several visitors and may involve some walking in the more popular summer months.

This a a wonderful place for a picnic! It's an old boathouse decked out in a seafaring theme, and maintained by Caroline, a local artist. Each table has a theme. Caroline has provided an indoor barbecue, so on a cold winter day you can sit...inside eating a hot meal and watching the sea.Enjoy!More
