Prepare

What to pack

When travelling in Tasmania it is always best to be prepared and pack for all weather conditions whatever the season and travelling to the West Coast usually means rain sometimes as our abundant rainforests need rain to thrive.

Weather conditions in Strahan range from perfectly still to the perfect storm. The sanctuary of your apartment is never far away, but warm layers, a cosy jacket, a raincoat, and some sturdy footwear will be your best friends when exploring outdoors.

It is advisable if visiting national parks whilst in Tasmania to purchase a Parks Pass also.

History, Partnerships & Accreditation

HISTORY

Your hosts, the McDermott’s, an original Strahan Family, are pioneers of the modern hospitality industry in Strahan, building the original units, Sharonlee, and more recently Marsden Court, on the site of the West Strahan Railway Station.  The Tasmanian Government Strahan to Zeehan Railway was built in a little over 12 months and operated from 1892 to 1962 to support the mining industries on the West Coast.  Unfortunately, there is little that remains of the railway except for the turntable pit which has been turned into a rose garden with some 160 roses delighting our guests.  The railway turntable was donated by the McDermott family to the restoration of the west Coast Wilderness Railways and although modified is now in use at the Regatta Point Station.

Terry McDermott

Founder of Sharonlee Strahan Villas/Marsden Court

Strahan Tourism Pioneer

1926 - 2020

Vale to a true Tasmanian Tourism Champion
Terry McDermott, developer of Sharon-Lee Holiday Villas and Marsden Court, Strahan, passed away this week aged 94.
Active right until his passing, Terry was born in Strahan in 1926 and lived his entre life in his beloved West Coast town.
Terry’s working life was spent on local council, the Port of Strahan, the local water treatment centre, and aerodrome before he entered the fledgling tourism industry in the 70’s. Extremely passionate about the West Coast and particularly Strahan, Terry was one of the early pioneers of the local tourism industry, developing Sharon-Lee Holiday Villas in the 1970’s.
Together with his brother Harry, at one point Terry owned the General Store, Newsagency and the iconic Hamer’s Hotel.
Terry’s contribution to the development of Tasmania’s tourism industry was recognised in 2008 when he was awarded the industry’s highest individual honour – The Outstanding Contribution by an Individual Award at that year’s Tasmanian Tourism Awards.
Terry will be remembered fondly as one of the Tasmanian tourism industry’s pioneers and long time legends.
Terry and his wife Dawn (dec) were regular members of TasVillas sales and promotion teams that toured mainland Australia in the 80’s and 90’s selling Tasmania and Strahan to hundreds of travel agents and thousands of consumers at countless holiday and travel shows for many years.
Terry is survived by his son Mark and wife Pam, grandchildren, and daughter Terry-Lee, not to mention his developments in Sharon-Lee and Marsden Court.
