Ocean Beach - Strahan
Tasmania’s longest beach is 33‑kilometre Ocean Beach, west of Strahan. A road south of town leads to the start of the beach and a spot where you can look out over Hells Gates – the entrance to Macquarie Harbour – and across to the slender 1899 Cape Sorell Lighthouse that guards the outer head. Visitors can also reach the beach on a road directly west of Strahan or by another that leads north to the popular Henty Dunes. The dunes reach as high as 30 metres, so it is recommended that you bring something to slide on. At sunset from October to March, a walk along the beach might reveal short-tailed shearwaters returning to their burrows.
