Strahan Airport airport codes|SRN|YSRN is an airport located 3 km west of Strahan, Tasmania, Australia. It is the main airport for the West Coast of Tasmania, and is owned and maintained by the West Coast Council.

Strahan Airport, previously known as Strahan Aerodrome, has a north south alignment and runs parallel to Ocean Beach. Like the rest of West Coast Tasmania, Strahan Airport airspace is controlled from Melbourne Airport in Victoria.

Helicopter and fixed wing flights operate from here for charter flights into the south-west wilderness area, or over locations in western Tasmania. There are currently no regular passenger flights to Strahan from other airports in Tasmania.

Previously, in the 1970s, a runway was utilised at Howards Plains - just west of Queenstown and Strahan, and if weather conditions were difficult at Queenstown, Strahan would be the alternative landing location. Airlines of Tasmania ran the service.

Climate averages from the period 1976 to 2004 are available from the Bureau of Metereology.


Strahan has a mild and wet climate. The highest recorded temperature in Strahan was 37.2°C on 14th February 1982 and the lowest being -3°C on 30th June 1983.
