Zeehan is rich in mining history with grand relics of its early days and some of Tasmania's best fishing spots nearby.
Hidden in a valley of rugged hills and rainforest, Zeehan was established in the late 1800s after tin, silver and lead discoveries sparked the largest mining boom in the west. Nicknamed 'Silver City', it quickly grew into Tasmania's third largest town and social hub for the entire West Coast region. Today the town attracts geologists from around the world due to the unique geological structures of the region.
Not surprising then that the West Coast Heritage Centre and Pioneers Museum, with its excellent displays on the area's indigenous, pioneering and mining past, has one of the finest collections of minerals in the world.
Zeehan, like other West Coast mining towns, has seen many booms and busts, making it a living museum full of character and fascinating stories. Today, Zeehan's Main Street is lined with grand old buildings like the Gaiety Theatre, supposedly visited by Dame Nellie Melba, beautifully restored and still entertaining locals and visitors.
And for something different, at the end of the street, you'll find the Spray Tunnel, a 100-metre abandoned railway tunnel that you can walk, ride or drive through.
Nature lovers can enjoy the views from the top of Mount Zeehan, explore the wild West Coast at Trial Harbour and Granville Harbour, climb the massive Henty Dunes behind Australia's longest beach and explore the nearby wilderness.
Zeehan is also a fishing hotspot with trout caught at Lake Pieman.
Zeehan is a 1 hr 50-min drive (150 km) south-west of Burnie, and a 40-min drive (50 km) north-east of Strahan.
Zeehan is a town on the west coast of Tasmania, Australia 139 kilometres South-West of Burnie. It is located north of Strahan, Tasmania and Queenstown, Tasmania. In the early 1900s, it had its own council. It is currently part of the Municipality of West Coast.
