No visit to Strahan Tasmania would be complete without going to see this live play called The Ship That Never Was. Entertainment plus and part of Australia's history told in such an engaging way.Longest running play ever not to be missed.

They were wonderful. We needed to book accomodation and they found Franklin Manor. Extremely quick response. They also booked a World Heritage Cruise with Gold Pass. They were wonderful.

Arrived in Strahan with no accommodation booked so called into the Visitor Centre and after finding out what we would like, the young lady proceeded to find us some fantastic accommodation a the Castaway Cottages. In future, when visiting a new place with no accommodation booked, go straight to the local Information Centre and they will certainly assist you in... More

Centre was just average, however the staff were very friendly and helpful. The night time stage show sounded like it was worth seeing, however we didn't have the time.
