Helicopters have been a familiar sight around Strahan for many years.

Scenic tours allow passengers to take off from the heart of Strahan at the Marina offering beautiful vistas right from takeoff.

Strahan Helicopters specialises in scenic tours and transfers using the famous Robinson 44 helicopter. Upon request, a larger helicopter can be available for scenic or aerial work in conjunction with Tasmanian Helicopters Pty Ltd – www.tasmanianhelicopters.com.au

Strahan is a charming seaside hamlet that is an outlying post of civilisation on Tasmania’s west coast, often described as “one of the loneliest places on earth” and is the gateway to the rugged untamed south-west wilderness. Tucked away in a corner of Macquarie Harbour, Strahan was a regular shipping port in the 19th and early 20th centuries, servicing the mining and timber industries in the area. Strahan also has a strong connection with its convict past, being the nearest maritime base for Sarah Island, a notorious penal settlement during the convict era and a powerful reminder of the brutal treatment of Tasmania’s convicts.
