West Coast Reflections Exhibition
The Esplanade, Strahan
Architects, writers, woodturners, gardeners and historians contributed their talents to the acclaimed exhibition West Coast Reflections at the West Coast Visitor Information and Booking Centre. The story of the people of West Coast starts 35,000 years ago with the Aborigines, and proceeds through convict times, mining and forestry. The exhibit includes rainforests, caves, oral history.
The centre also hosts Tasmania's longest running play The Ship That Never Was, based on a real event in 1834 when the last ship built at the convict settlement at Macquarie Harbour was about to sail for the new prison at Port Arthur but was hijacked by 10 convict shipwrights.
