Huonville

Fruit orchards, farmland and roadside stalls

It doesn’t take long for the Huon Valley to begin casting its spell. Just half an hour drive from Hobart, en route to Huonville you will pass rolling green hills, fruit orchards, neatly-rowed vines and inviting wineries. All this with World Heritage Wilderness in the background including the Hartz Mountains, this drive south of Hobart is always special.

For those who enjoy paddock to plate freshness and meeting the maker, the Huon Valley is the place to do so. Stop in at The Apple Shed and learn about the Huon’s impressive apple heritage, and be sure to sample a cider or two in the process. It may take you a while to get to Huonville by the time you stop and enjoy the surrounding produce- mushrooms, honey, pears, cherries, apricots, fresh salmon – a food lover’s heaven.

Huonville is the last major town heading south, so it’s a good place to stock up on supplies if you intend to travel further south. Located on the banks of the Huon River, the town itself is a lovely spot to picnic by the water, plan your next move or hop aboard the high speed jet boat.

Along the main street you’ll find a collection of shops selling everything from local craft and second-hand treasures to handy stores to stock up on provisions. From here it’s an easy drive to head on down to Cygnet for lunch and a great base to return to if you’re planning to explore the Far South on day trips.
