Strahan is possibly the rarest of all the treasures Tasmania has to offer. The west coast is a rare and beautiful land of ancient mountains and lonely oceans.
Strahan offers a amazing choice of pre and post-tour experiences. It's the home port for the Gordon River Cruises and is the base for the West Coast Wilderness Railway.
For delegates seeking a truly Tasmanian experience, this destination is unbeatable.
Strahan is located on the rugged west coast of Tasmania. Approximately a 4 hour drive from Launceston or 4.5 hours from Hobart.
Nestled alongside Macquarie Harbour, Strahan is an enchanting and scenic village located in World Heritage wilderness on Tasmania's west coast. The town is a fishing port which was brought to prominence as the home of the infamous Sarah Island Penal Settlement. Today, Strahan is recognised for its unique location, embraced by some of the world's last remaning temperate rainforest, majestic mountains and the mighty Gordon River.
Strahan Village offers 141 accommodation rooms including the luxuriously appointed Waterfront Executive Suites, spacious Harbour View Suites set on the hilltop and the Waterfront Cottages and Terraces designed to echo the history of the region with outlooks over Macquarie Harbour.
Our creative menus are inspired by the fresh local produce of the region, including Atlantic salmon farmed in the pristine waters of Macquarie Harbour.
Delegates can dine in View 42 Restaurant, the licensed Fish Cafe or at Hamers Bar & Grill. Or for a unique Strahan experience, why not enjoy a sunset dinner cruise on the Gordon River aboard the Lady Jane Franklin II, brunch at a 100-year-old train station in the remote Tasmanian wilderness, or a twilight BBQ on West Strahan Beach? Or simply enjoy pre-dinner drinks on the restaurant's balcony with the sun setting over the harbour - the perfect backdrop.
