Truly unique, Strahan is a prime destination for a Tasmanian touring holiday. Strahan Village is an ideal base for exploring Tasmania’s stunning wilderness on your holidays. You might mistake this enchanting village for a picture postcard hidden away on Tasmania’s west coast, but Strahan is first and foremost a working fishing port and you will see the locals unloading their catch as you explore the waterfront.
Being so close to world heritage wilderness means there is no shortage of things to do. Take a ride on the scenic West Coast Wilderness Railway, journey into the Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park with Gordon River Cruises, watch Australia’s longest running theatre show ‘The Ship That Never Was’, spot platypus on an easy stroll to the delightful Hogarth Falls, or go sand-boarding on Henty Dunes.
Strahan is situated on the west coast of Tasmania on the edge of the Tasmanian Wilderness UNESCO World Heritage Area. It's home to flora and fauna of world importance and one of the last expanses of temperate rainforest found on the planet.

Join the award-winning Gordon River Cruises for a guided wilderness tour across Macquarie Harbour and up the Gordon River.
