We’ve just set up a new website for Driftwood Strahan Villas on the West Coast of Tasmania. I find it interesting to build websites for places like Strahan because the more you learn about what to see and do, the more you realize Australia is an amazing place.
Strahan is located on Macquarie Harbour, which turned out to be 6 times bigger than Sydney Harbor. The area is World Heritage Listed with amazing cruises on the Gordon River, Old Railway lines with Steam Engines, wild stretches of beach, and islands with wild tales from the convict days when they were building great ships from the Huon Pine. Strahan looks like a very cool place to go.
The website follows a pattern that we’ve found to work well. One item we added for this was an embedded like to a Live Webcam Overlooking Strahan. That seems to have worked well. The camera is a project funded by the local tourism organization and it gives the website visitor a great feeling for being in Strahan.
This website is built using BurgundySky. It will give the owners a website they can self-manage as their motel changes. The property is very new and has been winning a lot of awards for being Environmentally Friendly. They also have an interest in promoting Tours and Activities in the area, so they may be adding new pages to help their neighbor businesses.
One of the challenges with this website was finding the right keywords: is it a Motel, or Holiday Units, or Self-contained Apartments, or Self catering Cottages, New Affordable Accommodation in Strahan Tasmania – well I guess it is all of the above. Hopefully, people looking for a great place to stay will find the website.
