Originally developed as a port of access for the mining settlements in the area, Strahan is now the main tourist centre for Tasmania`s west coast region, the gateway for boats, planes and helicopters taking visitors to the southwest wilderness. At the northernmost end of Strahan Harbor, People`s Park is a mix of natural forest and botanical gardens, with picnic and camping facilities. From here it is a 30 minute walk to the Hogarth Falls through rainforest. Another interesting place is the Cape Sorell Lighthouse, constructed in 1899, 40 m high and 2.5 m in diameter. From the Water Tower Hill you can admire the excellent view of town and Macquarie Harbor. Visit the Ocean Beach a desolate and beautiful 40 km long stretch with large dunes. Waves hitting here have traveled all the way from Patagonia in South America.
