Gordon River Cruise
Aboard the Spirit of the Wild
The Gordon River Cruise offers a tranquil tour through some of the world’s untouched wilderness. From a chef-prepared buffet, to character interpretations of Australia’s earliest explorers, uncover new knowledge, take a relaxing walking tour (in two of the tours) while sipping on Tasmania’s fine wines, beers, and whiskey.
The Ship That Never Was
Acclaimed theatre show
Take a step back to 1834, where the Frederick sets sail for the newest convict prison at Port Arthur. With plans of a great escape, follow the story of ten convict shipwrights in the intriguing tale produced by live theatre company The Round Earth Company. The production has its 25th Anniversary in January 2019, to celebrate its status as the longest running Australian production.
In Summer, the production runs daily from 5.30pm. In Winter, a movie of The Ship That Never Was is aired at 5.30pm.
The Longest Beach in Tasmania (30 km | 18.6 miles)
If long walks on the beach are the thing of your dreams, then this is a long walk on a beach. Look on out to the edge of the earth, and wonder if flat earth theorists have a point (well, not really). In September, the mutton bird population migrate 15,000 kilometres to this beach in what is a beautiful spectacle across the summer evenings.
One of the sixty great short walks in Tasmania
Among a scenic short walk, hikers will see interpretations of the area from local school children, in what is a beautiful interpretation of the land that is walked upon. Beyond that is, of course, the Hogarth Falls that starts at the top of the Peoples Park. For a longer walk, stroll directly from the accommodation, or town centre.
Traverse iconic Tasmanian dunes
The Strahan ATV team offer a safe and thrilling tour of the Henty Dunes made possible by the world-famous Roaring 40 winds. A short ocean beach walk with waves crashing, a sunset tour of the Macquarie Heads, and a gourmet hamper offers a beautiful option to escape your past and be caught in the present. The inclusive tour offers adventure, fun, laughter, and a self-guided cruise at your own pace. What a thing to do in Strahan!
