Wikipedia

Strahan Airstrip in Tasmania is an airport located 2 nautical miles (3.7 km; 2.3 mi) west of Strahan. It is the main airport for the West Coast of Tasmania and is owned and maintained by the West Coast Council. The need for an airport in the area was suggested in the 1950s, and suggestions for upgrades have occurred over time.
Helicopter and fixed-wing flights operate from here for charter flights into the south-west wilderness area, or over locations in western Tasmania. In May 2019, Par Avion commenced a thrice-weekly service between Hobart and Strahan.
Lack of animal-proof fencing has created a need for the landing strip to be checked and cleared before emergency landings by the Royal Flying Doctor Service.
