Strahan Overview

Strahan is a picturesque water front town and the only port on Tasmania's rugged west coast. The port once handled cargoes for the mining towns of Zeehan and Queenstown; it is now the starting point for the popular cruises along the Gordon River and around Macquarie Harbour. No trip to Tasmania would be complete without a cruise down the mirror like waters of the world famous Gordon River into world heritage wilderness and a visit to the former penal settlement on Sarah Island.

About a 4-hour drive from Hobart, you will want to allow more time than that for the spectacular scenery along the way.
