West Coast Attractions



Cradle Mountain

Cradle Mountain forms the northern end of the wild Cradle Mt - Lake St Clair National Park, itself a part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area

Wee Georgie Wood

Take a nostalgic train ride with us and experience what it was like to travel by train to an isolated West Coast community in the early 20th century.

Montezuma Falls

Situated just south of Rosebery, the car park near the old Williamsford township is the place to start. One of the best 3 hour walks on the West Coast should not be missed.

Pioneer Museum

The Zeehan School of Mines and Metallurgy was established in 1892 and ran courses in geology, assaying and surveying. Today it has been converted into the Zeehan Museum.

Henty Dunes

20 minutes drive south of Zeehan are the Henty Dunes. A vast expanse of sand dunes extending several kilometres inland. Pine plantations have attempted to stop the migration of the dunes inland.

Ocean Beach

Ocean Beach is a long stretch of beach running north of Macquarie Heads and Hells Gates on the West Coast of Tasmania.

Macqaurie Heads

Maquarie Heads and Hell's Gates is the name of the mouth of Macquarie Harbour on the West Coast of Tasmania. It is a notoriously shallow and dangerous channel entrance to the harbour.

Strahan

Historically Strahan has been a port to a small fishing fleet that braves the west coast conditions and Hell's Gates. Nowdays it's the port for Gordon River Cruises and other wilderness tours.

Wilderness Railway

The West Coast Wilderness Railway is a steam train journey through mountainous Tasmanian wilderness from Queenstoen to Strahan and return. Tours depart daily.

Queenstown

The mountains surrounding Queenstown have unusual pink and grey hues that come from the conglomerate rocks on the two most adjacent mountains - Mount Lyell and Mount Owen.

Nelson Falls

Along the boardwalk to Nelson Falls you will come across interpretation panels highlighting the ancient plants you see along the way, including at least seven species of fern.

Gordon River Cruises

How could any visit to Tasmania be complete without a cruise on the world-famous Gordon River? The fight to save this natural treasure in the early 1980's attracted international attention and support.
