Overview
Strahan is less than an hour drive to Queenstown and a three hour drive to Devonport on the west coast of Tasmania.

In 1815, Captain James Kelly navigated the 200-metre opening to Macquarie Harbour, which convicts later dubbed Hells Gates. Between 1822 and 1833, Sarah Island operated as a penal station with the dubious reputation of being the worst convict prison in Australia. Today, Strahan symbolises proud independence on the edge of the world – a place that tells the story of 19th-century pioneers and miners and 20th-century protesters who stopped the damming of the wild Franklin River.

Now a picturesque fishing village offering comfort and convenience on the Wild West coast you can cruise on the Gordon River that will take you deep into the World Heritage Area wilderness. You will travel through one of the last pristine examples of temperate rainforest in the world. Make sure your cruise stops off at Sarah Island where you can hear the stories of the convicts who logged the Huon pine for shipbuilding.
