Strahan lies at the northern edge of the wild, savage and unspoiled beauty of Macquarie Harbour. It is the last town on Tasmania's West Coast and one of the loneliest and most isolated places on the planet. The British brought their most hardened criminals to Sarah Island in Macquarie Harbour and the result was a penal colony of unimaginable hardship. History: At various earlier times the 'port' had been known as Long Bay and Regatta Point but in 1877 it became the port for the tin mines at Mount Heemskirk. It was named Strahan after Major George Strahan who was the Governor of Tasmania from 1881-86. Boat Tours are available on the Gordon River. There are two operators who can take you out on a boat ride to discover the natural wonders of the Gordon River. Quad Bike Tours are available at Strahan and we highly recommend taking the time to do it. The Henty Dunes are fantastic, and the scenery is just stunning.
