Fishing and tourism



 



Strahan port and fishing vessels






Historically Strahan has been a port to a small fishing fleet that braves the west coast conditions and Hells Gates It is the nearest inhabited locality to Cape Sorell and is literally the 'gateway' to the south-west wilderness - as boats, planes and helicopters utilise Strahan as their base when travelling into the region. The Huon Pine industry that utilised stands around the harbour and up the tributary rivers - including  King River, the Franklin River and the Gordon River.  

The northern shore of Macquarie Harbour is across the bay from Regatta Point   the terminus of the recently reconstructed, but currently non-operational,  
West Coast Wilderness Railway. Strahan is the location of the only all weather commercial airport in Western Tasmania, Strahan Airport. Also located at the airport is the Automatic Weather Station, an important western Tasmania weather observation point.

Strahan is the base for boat trips to Sarah Island, the notorious penal settlement that garnered the reputation as the harshest penal settlement in the Australian colonies, and the lower Gordon River. 

Strahan is an access point to the Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park, which was declared part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area in 1982. For several years Strahan became the focus of a conservation campaign opposed to the proposed Franklin-below-Gordon Dam. 

It is the home of the Round Earth Theatre Company, which conducts explanatory tours of Sarah Island and also has produced a daily enactment/play about Sarah Island, The Ship That Never Was, which has exceeded 5000 performances and is Australia's longest running play.
