The West Coast is the gateway to Tasmania's wilderness. Coastal populations include Strahan, situated on Macquarie Harbour, and the picturesque shack sites of Granville Harbour and Trial Harbour. The inland population centres of Queenstown, Zeehan, Tullah and Rosebery and the small historic townships of Gormanston and Linda are all within a short distance from magnificent lakes, rivers, rainforests, dunes and historic sites.

Due to safety concerns with a landslip in Denison Street Queenstown, changed traffic conditions have been implemented for public safety. Please adhere to traffic management that is in place.

Some changed traffic conditions have been put in place at Macquarie Heads Road at Swan Basin. Please adhere to traffic management that is in place and proceed with caution.
