A travel journal to Strahan by maberith

Quote: Stuck on the West coast of Tasmania, this cold, yet welcoming place was once home to the Nations worst convicts.

Strahan-dered.

Overview

Quote:
A world heritage cruise, stopping at Sarah Island, "The Ship that Never Was" performance, shown nightly. Also viewing Shearwaters (Mutton birds) coming in of a night at Ocean Beach.

Quick Tips:

In Strahan it rains 300 days of the year, so you are bound to find a bit of rain every day. Take a good rain coat with you!!

Best Way To Get Around:

A car would be ideal, although a bus service does run in and out of town once a week.
Quote:
Warm dorms, with 6 beds per dorm. It is very comfortable, large communal kitchen and leisure area. Hot showers (it seems to have a never ending hot water service!), and laundry. A great place for meeting people, and it''s also a pick-up point for the Muttonbird bus.

Ocean Beach Tasmania

Restaurant | "Ocean Beach Picnic"

Quote:
A perfect picnic on Ocean Beach, either watching the sun rise, go down, or just sitting in the sky behind some huge cloud!! Grab some croissants from the bakery in town, then make your way out to Ocean Beach. A bottle of bubbly may also be needed!! Just watch the waves, they may intrude on your little scene at some stage!!

Henty Sand Dunes

Attraction

Quote:
The Henty Dunes are a 15 min drive outside of Strahan. With great views of the ocean, they are great fun with kids. A local company in Strahan runs 4wd bike tours of the dunes, although a full driver's licence is required.

World Heritage Cruises

Attraction | "Strahan World Heritage Cruises"

Quote:
A breathtaking cruise. The cruise takes you out through Hell's Gates and back. A 1-hour stopover at Sarah Island gives you the chance to explore on your own, or with a tour group. Further down past Sarah Island, a full buffet lunch is served, only serving Tasmanian Produce. The walk at Heritage landing gives you a chance to see the real Tasmanian Rainforest. During the leisurely cruise back, many people talk or sleep after their long day of breath-taking scenery.

A great trip.

Nice port of call.

Story/Tip

Quote:
After driving from Hobart, through Cradle Mountain/Lake St Clair National Park (another World Heritage area) we arrived in Strahan to find ourselves part of their annual Christmas Parade. Feeling quite out of place in our dirty, white Subaru alongside the "The Maffia" and local firetrucks decked out with Bob the Builder.
