Strahan is a Tasmanian seaside town that traces its roots to an old fishing village and colonial-era convict settlement. Wedged between Macquarie Harbour and ancient rainforests, the striking little town lies within the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. This harbor town is popular among intrepid travelers as the gateway to the Franklin–Gordon Wild Rivers National Park. The historic Strahan Harbour, the outdoor beach life, the coves and cruises along the sea continue to attract tourists all year round to this far-flung part of the planet. Journeys down the West Coast Wilderness Railway and riverboat cruises on the Gordon River are other wild attractions.
