The weather off Strahan is very unstable, succeptible to high winds and storms (even though Strahan itself may have pleasant weather). If you want to try for a seaplane ride off Strahan, you may be duly disappointed as I did!
As we get into town, we check into our hotel and read the brochures for the local restaurants. Based on the menu, we chose the Macquarie Restaurant. When we drove into town, we noticed that the restaurant was up on the cliff above town, and walked up these stairs. As we climbed the cliff and entered the restaurant, we realized that there were no patrons!
It turns out that the town pretty much closes down during the winter months, so it was not open in late August!
I called the number on the card inside the restaurant, and it turns out that they were open after September 1st!
