Strahan was first settled as a port to provide access for the mining and forestry industries of the 19th Century. It is the gateway to most of the West Coast Wilderness, and the home base for the Gordon River Cruise from Strahan and the old Convict Station at Sarah Island. The solid stone architecture of the area, evident in the refurbished cottages along the waterfront, is a response to the wild and unpredictable weather of the area. Much of the good accommodation in Strahan is found in the Hilltop Motel Strahan Village, and it is possible to book accommodation in the self contained stone cottages bordering the wharf. The updated motel on the hill immediately behind Strahan gives some of the best views of the town, but the waterfront accommodation is down at the foot of the hill, just metres from the waters edge.
Franklin Manor is a delightfully appointed, casual boutique hotel on the Esplanade, about one Km (just over half a mile) from the Center of Strahan, and looking over Risby Cove back to the village. The excellent restaurant at Franklin Manor offers modern Australian cuisine with an emphasis on fresh Tasmanian seafood and produce. An excellent wine list adds to the dining experience.
Budget hotels can be found at the Strahan Holiday Park Cabins, situated a short walk away from the main wharf area. Another budget cabin style accommodation is the Driftwood Strahan Villas, located a short drive from the main attractions and the Gordon River Cruise from Strahan departure point.
More upscale B&B style accommodation can be found right on the Esplanade. One unique accommodation worth a look is Ormiston House Strahan, a 5 star property of five well appointed rooms situated right in the centre of things. We do stress again that it is best to book your accommodation in Strahan before driving all the way out there, especially in the December to March period.
None of the accommodation in Strahan is far from the Wharf Area and the Village on the waterfront. You need to be aware that Queenstown is about a one hour drive from Strahan, so when considering accommodation for the activities based in Strahan, it is best to stay in the township itself when possible. Strahan regularly books out, so reservations are advisable, especially in the high season months of December to March.
If you are unlucky enough not to find accommodation in Strahan, the next best option is Queenstown. A full range of budget hotels and motels is available in Queenstown and are worth a look if you are price shopping. >>> Tasmania.com - Hotels in Queenstown (Australia)
There are very few places on the Planet that have not felt the impact of man on the environment. Being an Island, and in a remote corner of the world (you don't get to Tasmania on the way to anywhere else, except Antarctica, and the centre of Australia's Green Movement, Tasmania has wisely locked up over 35% of its surface in World Heritage Wilderness Areas or National Parks. The true cool temperate wilderness of Tasmania has been beautifully preserved for the future. It is one of the few places left where city dwellers can feel the true meaning of a genuine wilderness area without having to hike days with their home on their back. Tasmania is cool, green, wild and friendly. Strahan is in the centre of all this Wilderness.
