Travel to Strahan - West Coast
Tasmania’s West Coast has a reputation for rugged beauty and while it takes the brunt of the state’s prevailing weather fronts, don’t let the forecasts deter you from visiting. It is a region of stunning beauty, fascinating history and unforgettable wilderness experiences.
If you base yourself at Strahan, on offer is the West Coast Wilderness Railway—a trip into the wild aboard the beautifully restored Abt railway which travels through to Queenstown. Another must-do at Strahan is a cruise which takes in Macquarie Harbour, Sarah Island and the Gordon River—famous for its huon pine stands and marvelous reflections. Just north of Strahan is Henty Dunes—an amazing landscape formed by the strong westerly winds. The huge sand formations can be explored on foot or aboard quad bikes. The rich mining heritage of the West coast is in abundant display at Queenstown and Zeehan. If cruising is your thing then fantastic experiences await at Arthur River and up the Pieman River from Corinna to the great Southern Ocean.
