Wheelhouse Luxury Apartments, Tasmania
As you approach these two stunning air-conditioned contemporary apartments through the backstreets of this charming fishing hamlet, you might see a sign for West Coast crayfish - buy some - as once you arrive, you simply won’t want to leave! Strahan nestles on the banks of Macquarie Harbour (the second largest harbour in the southern hemisphere) on Tasmania's rugged West Coast - and The Wheelhouse Apartments enjoy a spectacular clifftop position overlooking the fishing boats, yachts and Gordon River ferries on the harbour below. The floor-to-ceiling glass windows appear to almost hang over the cliff-edge - and the living areas are cantilevered towards the water on elevated steel girders!
The apartments are the result of a true labour of love for owners Richard and Amanda Dyson who have built and designed these stylish ‘beached fishing trawlers’. Their vision was to create ‘a sense of standing in the wheelhouse of a huge ship’, hovering high above the harbour. The maritime feel is subtly accentuated by the polished timber floors, the uncluttered space and porthole-style windows in the main door. Upstairs, the bedroom has a corner spa bath which takes full advantage of the magnificent views - and there is also a separate ensuite. Downstairs, the kitchen opens on to an expansive sundeck. Strahan sits on the edge of the pristine Franklin - Gordon Wild Rivers National Park - and a ‘must’ is a cruise on the Gordon River aboard the Lady Jane Franklin. You should also take a ride on the restored West Coast Wilderness Railway - a fascinating 35 kilometre journey through one of the world's last pristine wilderness areas.
