Strahan Village is a motley collection of buildings and eateries all under the Federal management. The room we chose, a mini-suite on the waterfront, was quiet, spacious and comfortable, with good views over the harbour. There was an unpleasant smell of drains some of the time, but these things happen. We also had to walk past an oveflowing dustbin to get to the room, and the hotel should have been able to do something about that. The hotel is conveniently located close to restaurants, Gordon River cruises etc.
Strahan is an attractive town where we only spent two nights. The full day was taken up with the Gordon River cruise whiich is enjoyable though a bit commercial with c 200 people on board. If you have time and are going up the western Explorer (which is a fantastic drive), the Pieman or Arthur river cruise would probably be more intimate and enjoyable. We did not go on the Wilderness railway, though on reflection, that might have been as good a trip as the river cruise. A drive out to Ocean beach or Henty Dunes is well worthwhile.
