The small fishing community of Strahan on the West Coast is remote and wild, just as you'd expect from a place at the gateway to the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. The heart of the village faces the busy waterfront from where the Lady Jane Franklin 11 departs. This luxurious state of the art vessel is the ideal way to experience rainforest wilderness first hand. A sumptuous lunch is included in your ticket and full gallery service is available. Seating upgrades are welcomes.
Your cruise takes you to Hells Gates, the feared entrance to Macquarie Harbour, and out to the edge of the great Southern Ocean. Back within the protected waters of the Harbour you will visit fish farms, cruise the mighty Gordon River, see ancient Huon Pine trees that first took root over 2000 years ago. Also included is a guided tour of the brutal Sarah Island convict settlement. A truly memorable day.
