Strahan Holidays

Strahan is a small town and former port on the west coast of Tasmania. It is now a significant locality for tourism in the region. Strahan Harbour and Risby Cove form part of the north-east end of Long Bay on the northern end of Macquarie Harbour. At the 2016 census, Strahan had a population of 658.

Strahan is a harbour-side village with a dark and fascinating convict past set on the edge of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area.
Nestled on the shores of massive Macquarie Harbour, Strahan is the gateway to the World Heritage listed Franklin–Gordon Wild Rivers National Park.
Boat cruises provide an unforgettable journey through World Heritage Wilderness into the pristine temperate rainforests of the Gordon River.
Strahan is full of stories from the days of convicts and pioneers toughing it out in Tassie's wild west. Nearby, in Macquarie Harbour is Sarah Island, once a notorious convict prison and a powerful reminder of the brutal treatment of Tasmania's convicts.
These days, Strahan is an iconic travel destination with shops selling artisan wares and eateries serving up delicious local produce.
There are long stretches of wild ocean beach to explore, massive sand dunes to conquer and forest adventures to be had.
Strahan is also the departure point for the West Coast Wilderness Railway. From Strahan you can take a return half-day journey into the wilderness or a full-day journey to Queenstown and back.
