  • Loved this.. as a former sawmiller, I loved the tours. Brought my dad back the next day to have a look. Will be buying from you soon.
  • Visiting this Mill was one of my highlights visiting Strahan, and Strahan was one of the highlights of my first trip to Tassie. A definite ‘MUST DO’ in my opinion because it is just so fascinating to see skilled timber workers do their stuff and do it so well. Kiah gave such an impassioned and informative commentary and after completing our trip around Tassie, the prices and variety of gifts (made of huon pine) are the best I have seen anywhere by far. What IS it about the beautiful aroma of huon pine? You never forget it. This is one of those rare establishments where you feel directly connected to real history and a way of life that is utterly unique. Thank you Strahan and thank you Morrison’s Mill!
