After doing the Gordon River Cruise we decided to head off to see the show, hubby wasn't keen. On a very cold night, the cast handed out blankets and hot water bottles which we thought was a great idea. We had a very enjoyable fun...More

This was easily the best $20 I ever spent.......the two actors worked very hard throughout the entire play, lots of audience participation which made for lots of laughs. I highly reccomend seeing this show.

Went to see the play following an insistent recommendation from our tour guide (Thanks Ben, you did not disappoint!). And a great follow-up to Sarah Island – it completes the story. Australia’s longest-running play, The Ship That Never Was is a unique and entertaining approach...More

This is a unique and thoroughly enjoyably event. Don't miss it! It will be the best $20 you spend on holiday entertainment. The two actors will take you with them in a hilarious journey through a piece of local history - with props and songs...More

Little live theatre treat! Great story to make all ages enjoy the history of the area. Lots of audience involvement (but not scary!), and children were captivated. Its a Strahan institution that deserves a full house. Dress warm, but blankets supplied.

It is just on the wharf in Strahan. In front of where the red boat leaves. You should not need to book. It was busy, but plenty of seating. You can book where you book cruises and train.
