Secret spot to take your SevenC’s – Strahan, Tasmania
As you might have guessed already we are taking you to some of our favourite spots around Australia in hope that you will take your SevenC’s and create some incredible memories in the breathtaking spots we have in our backyard. This months edition of ‘secret spot to take your SevenC’s’ is Tasmania! Known as little New Zealand to many with its amazing scenery, Tassie is a popular tourist destination year round. Whether you want to eat delicious food and visit fantastic markets in Hobart or visit centuries old parks in Launceston, Tassie has a lot to offer.
Although the capital cities are wonderful the place that we really recommend you take your SevenC’s for an explore is to Strahan. Situated on the west coast of Tasmania, it has a dark but rich history attached to it. Nearby Sarah Island was once a notorious prison and the ruins are still there today to visit. You can hear all about the history of the area; the renowned mistreatment of convicts who were made to fell pine trees for boat building in the harsh conditions of the island. You can take a cruise around Sarah island or you can take the walking tracks, either way it is a must see!
Once you have had your fill of prison, why not head back to the mainland and explore what the township of Strahan has to offer. Strahan is the gateway to the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, home to 19 national parks and region reserves. If the water floats your boat, we recommend marking Ocean Beach, Hogarth Falls and Gordon River down on your ‘must visit’ list. If rainforests are more your thing, checking out the Frank River Nature Trail and Donaghy’s Hill Lookout will not disappoint.
A silver lining of our international borders being closed is that if we want to go on a holiday we have no choice but to explore our own back yard. Supporting local businesses and local tourism is imperative in todays climate, and we are so lucky that the places on our doorstep are as stunning as Tasmania. Take your SevenC’s along with you and tag us throughout your adventures.
