Strahan Village


Strahan Village is situated in the West Coast harbour-side town of Strahan and offers a variety of accommodation types. Accommodation options include individual cottages, terraces, rooms and suites on the top of the hill, with magnificent views over Macquarie Harbour. Strahan has a variety of restaurants and bistros, from the elegant View 42° Restaurant and Bar to bistro-style dining at Hamers Hotel. The West Coast Wilderness Railway, one of the world's best railway journeys, runs through spectacular rainforest gorges between Strahan and Queenstown, following the track of Tasmania's railway and mining pioneers. If you would like to cruise into the World Heritage Area, Lady Jane Franklin II, the purpose-built vessel of Gordon River Cruises, crosses Macquarie Harbour to Hell's Gates then enters the Gordon River with perfect reflections of riverside rainforest. Offering an opportunity to go ashore on a small island in Macquarie Harbour, the Bonnet Island Experience takes you to the home of a thriving colony of little penguins and short-tailed shearwaters. Enjoy gourmet Tasmanian food, observe seabirds at dusk in their native habitat, hear tales of the historic light house and its keeper. This is one of Tasmania's best small-group experiences. Advance bookings recommended.
