Regatta Point, Tasmania
|Line length||51 km (32 mi)|
|Track gauge||3 ft 6 in (1,067 mm)|
It linked two private railways: the Mount Lyell Mining and Railway Company railway line (now known as the West Coast Wilderness Railway) between Queenstown and Regatta Point and the Emu Bay Railway between Zeehan and Burnie.
Early photographs of the Strahan wharf and buildings adjacent taken from the north usually have the railway tracks in the lower section of the photograph, as the line followed the shore from Regatta Point around the bay before passing northward in what is considered to be West Strahan today.
It was a critical link, due to the difficulties of shipping negotiating the entrance Macquarie Harbour and was essential during the 1912 North Mount Lyell Disaster. The track gauge of the lines between Burnie was the same all the way to Queenstown.
Flooding and fire affected the most important link, the Henty Bridge, at stages in the lines history. 1920 was one year where the break in the line is recorded 
Following its closure, parts became tracks and eventually the formation was made into the Zeehan-Strahan Road.
