Zeehan to Strahan Road is a 51km, grade 2 One Way hike located in West Coast Tasmania Tasmania. The hike should take approximately 3 days to complete.


This is an historical route followed by car for 51km.

15km south of Zeehan, an unsignposted 4WD track leads west, close to the Badger River. This track follows the former railway easement for 5km while the road here takes to higher ground. Take care: after 5km the track stops abruptly at the top of a steep ravine, where there was once a railway bridge. On the other side, the railway continued a further 1km before rejoining the alignment of the road. A compaign is in place to keep the old formation clear of scrub but this should not be relied up on. please travel with care.
