Enjoy our stories of Tasmania's wild west and our wilderness cruises from Strahan

Tasmania's West Coast is a place like no other.  The wilderness here is rugged and the stories that have forged the characters of today run as deep as the cool water of the Gordon River.  Strahan is the western launchpad for the UNESCO Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area and we are here to help you explore it.

We were thrilled to recently host Samuel Johnson aboard Spirit of the Wild as part of his huge tour of Australia, raising money and awareness for cancer as part of 'Love Your Sister'.

Samuel is spending two whole years on the road around our great big country, partly in his van and partly... believe it or not... on a unicycle!  This is a result of a dare from his sister, that kicked off this wonderful and selfless initiative.

We took Samuel into the wilderness to see some of Tassie's most pristine rainforest as well as the history of Sarah Island, on our Gordon River Cruise.  He then stepped ashore again in Strahan to raise money for Love Your Sister.

Finally, we ran a contest to raise awareness for Love Your Sister and Tameika M. was our deserved winner!
