Through various Think Tasmania social media channels, we invited readers to contribute photos of Strahan. We’re currently working with west coast tourism organisation Discover Strahan on a brand new promotion due to be launched soon. That will lead on to additional coverage of the wider west coast region. In the interim, we thought it might be nice to share some of the photographic memories you have.

Photos of Strahan: From Fans of Tasmania

When we say memories, some of these photos of Strahan are exactly that. They’re not necessarily recent snapshots; in fact some of the images date back quite a few years. Some of them even MANY years! Obviously when people can still recall a favourable experience of Tasmania’s west coast from a long time ago, the experience was really worth remembering.

We’ll be inspiring Think Tasmania readers to create new memories when we share all that is great about current-day Strahan. Meanwhile, please enjoy these flash-backs while noting this was not an exercise purely for professional photographers. We do value the work of the experts, very highly in fact. However, we like to incorporate “holiday snaps” in our repertoire to represent exactly what you’ll see when you undertake your own first-hand journeys.
