Summary

The bustling tourist town of Strahan lies on the northern end of Macquarie Harbour. The trail follows the foreshore, offering wonderful views of the historic town and its harbour. Now a fully sealed, concrete trail, it follows the former railway that connected the Abt rack railway from Queenstown with the main line north to Zeehan and Burnie. The Abt railway is now an operational tourist railway which operates daily.
