Welcome to the
   West Coast Council

The West Coast is the gateway to Tasmania's wilderness. Coastal populations include Strahan, situated on Macquarie Harbour, and the picturesque shack sites of Granville Harbour and Trial Harbour. The inland population centres of Queenstown, Zeehan, Tullah and Rosebery and the small historic townships of Gormanston and Linda are all within a short distance from magnificent lakes, rivers, rainforests, dunes and historic sites.
