They were very helpful exchanging our vouchers for tickets on the Gordon River Cruise. We also received some helpful restaurant and attraction information here and purchased some local food souvenirs, jam and homey to take home.

Well worth a visit. There is a little play that happens every day right beside the center. It is well worth the money - funny, educational and very well done. A MUST see while in Strahan.

We only had limited time in Strahan unfortunately, so the staff were good at pointing out the essential things to do around town. They tried to book the river cruises for us, but unfortunately the cruise company office had already closed for the day.

We booked our tour through the visitor centre. The staff were excellent and even gave me a courtesy call to inform us of the time of departure. We went on a Gordon River cruise (please, don't miss this event, memories linger). Take in the play at 5.30pm after the cruise (not to be missed).
