Families And Kids Activities In Westcoast
West Coast
West Coast is one of Tasmania’s most popular travel destinations with everything that you require for the perfect family holiday. Strahan sits on the shores of Macquarie Harbour, which is six times bigger than Sydney Harbour! The town has a real charm, with its restored buildings in and around the wharf area, where the majority of shops and restaurants/cafes are located. It is a working fishing port and trying the delicious locally caught seafood is a must. Whilst in town, you have to take a tour up the magnificent Gordon River and on the harbor with World Heritage Cruise. West Strahan beach is a great picnic spot with safe beach, playground and amenities. Enjoy the fun of ‘The Ship that Never Was’, an amazing interactive, fun open air theatre production that takes you back in time. Great fun for children and adults. Queenstown Once the hub of the Tasmanian mining boom at the turn of the 20th century, it still remains the largest town on the West Coast and is home to the Wilderness Railway. They offer a range of trips on the old steam train through the neighbouring countryside and even over to the seaport of Strahan. When in town, check out the Galley Museum or do an underground minetour. The nearby Spion Kopf lookout is an 8 min walk and gives great views over town and the infamous gravel football oval! Montezuma Falls, a 10 min drive out of Roseberry, is Tassie’s highest waterfall at 104 metres. It is an easy 3 hour return walk (4km one way), to see the spectacular falls, and walk across the suspension bridge.
