Old convict penal settlement, on an isolated island in the pristine wilderness of South West Tasmania. It operated between 1822 and 1833. They sent the worst convicts here and it was like hell on earth.

One of Tasmania's 60 Great Short Walks, this walk starts at the top of Peoples Park in Strahan and is a gentle, meandering stroll through sweet-smelling bush to a delightful waterfall. Platypus live in the creek but are rarely seen as they are very shy.

Reaching heights of around 30m, the Henty Sand Dunes are a desert amid the rainforests of Tasmania's West Coast. The dunes were formed by the Roaring Forties, an wind that blows uninterrupted from South America, gaining speed all the way to Tasmania. From the picnic area it's an easy 1.5 hr return walk through the dunes to Ocean Beach, Tasmania's longest beach. For the adventurous, try tobogganing down the dunes - but you'll need to climb back up the dunes yourself. Toboggans are available for hire from select businesses in Strahan.

Drinks & Nightlife
At view 42 they have an amazing all you can eat buffet. However I just love to go up to the bar for a few drinks. The lounge seats are comfy and the view over looking Macquarie Harbour is amazing.

The heading incorrectly says Strahan Village & can't edit (??) but it should read; theatrical performance "THE SHIP THAT NEVER WAS" Australia's longest running play 'The Ship That Never Was' tells the dramatic and hilarious true story of the last Great Escape from Sarah Island. The play is based on a real event in 1834 when the last ship built at the convict settlement in Macquarie Harbour was about to sail for the new prison at Port Arthur but was hijacked by ten convict shipwrights. So begins the story of an amazing escape, an extraordinary voyage. Delightful interactive family entertainment not to be missed.

Parks & Nature
The river descends 570 metres (1,870 ft) over its 172-kilometre (107 mi) course;[1] much of which is located in an uninhabited wilderness area, contained with the Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park and Southwest National Park. The lower part of the Gordon River is part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area and contains a cold-climate rainforest and rare trees. As with many rivers in western Tasmania, the water is fresh and drinkable, yet has the colour of weak tea due to the absorption of tannin from button grass growing in the catchment area. Accessible only by boat or sea plane.
