Strahan Backpackers offers backpacker accommodation on Tasmania’s west coast. Strahan is four-and-a-half-hours west of Hobart (298 kilometres) and south west of Launceston (290 kilometres).
Set among native forest, Cosy Cabins Strahan is a 10-minute walk to the Strahan town centre. Guests can chose from rustic private huts, double or twin rooms or dormitory rooms. The property has shared bathroom facilities, two communal kitchens, a large common room and laundry. There is also outdoor seating in the extensive grounds and a barbecue area.
Strahan is a harbour side village on the edge of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. You can explore Macquarie Harbour from a sea kayak, try jet boating or visit the 30 metre-high Henty sand dunes. There are seaplane flights from Strahan over the wild forests of the southwest wilderness and cruises on the glassy water of the Gordon River. Treat yourself to fine Tasmanian food and wine, including freshly caught seafood, at one of Strahan’s restaurants or cafes, or browse the craft shops for a Huon Pine artefact made by a local artist.
