Hotel Overview


On the quiet bay of Macquarie Harbour on the island’s west coast.

Rooms at Strahan Village

Spread out between the waterfront and the hilltop, the accommodation at Strahan Village ranges from standard rooms to cottages to the Village Family Loft, ideal for larger groups. Choose from views of the harbour or the garden, with some having their own decks for relaxing and soaking up the fresh air.

Food and facilities

Thanks to the thriving fishing port in Strahan, fresh fish and seafood like crayfish, Atlantic salmon and trout are never too far from the menu in View 42 degrees, situated on the hilltop looking out over the village and the harbour. Hamer’s Hotel is another option when it comes to mealtimes – a bistro with a cosy log fire, with local ales on tap and a seasonal menu to choose from.

Activities at Strahan Village

Strahan Village is made for those keen to explore Tasmania’s nature and beautiful landscapes – appreciate it all from a Gordon River cruise, past ancient rainforests and along the tranquil waterways, stopping to walk through the woods at Heritage Landing. Head to the Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park to behold its dramatic gorges and valleys, and the rivers twisting through them, or take a twilight cruise to Bonnet Island to visit the resident colony of Little Penguins in their natural habitat.
