Strahan holidays

Located on the Tasmanian west coast, Strahan is the gateway to Tasmania’s Unesco Wilderness World Heritage Area and the Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park, one of the world’s most beautiful cool climate forests. The town is situated on the beautiful Macquarie Harbour and was once a penal colony, until 1833 when the convicts were all moved to Port Arthur on the east coast. Macquarie Harbour is also the departure point for the West Coast Wilderness Railway experience aboard a heritage steam locomotive, as well as the departure point for cruises on the magnificent Gordon River – a major sightseeing attraction.
