The location

Queenstown offers a range of activities and attractions such as the West Coast Wilderness Railway, a tourism rail venture that has seen the original mining purposed Abt railway track to Strahan restored, along with the original steam-powered locomotives that plied the route over a century ago.

The town plays host to the Unconformity Festival, a fast-growing contemporary arts festival which explores the rich and fascinating history of the region. Queenstown is also the gateway to the great South-West wilderness area, which incorporates some of Tasmania’s most popular bushwalks.
