Every town has a story.
This bold new Huon Valley podcast project takes you on a journey like no other.
The Huon Valley Council has partnered with storytelling tech company Storytowns, to produce new audio tours and a revolutionary experience for travellers.
Simply download the app and tune in while podcast hosts guide travellers through their experience of meeting the locals, hearing the quirky stories, and discovering new places. They will recommend stops, offer travel tips only the locals know, unravel hidden histories and reveal the best places to explore, connect and discover.
Featuring four locations – Dover, Cygnet, Huonville and Geeveston – travellers are taken on a deep dive into the heart of these stunning Tasmanian towns and along the way will learn why the Huon River is the lifeblood of the area, the best gourmet food and cidery stops, a B&B with a difference, and much more.

This project was made possible by the Australian Government’s Regional Arts Fund, which supports the arts in regional and remote Australia.
Storytowns is a new storytelling podcast and tech start-up dedicated to creating an immersive rich experience for listeners to deeply connect to a place. Stories are a powerful way to breathe life into tourism experiences and can bring a visitor on a creative, nourishing and memorable journey while preserving the essence, character and histories of the places and its people.
Whether it’s an exploratory townscape, themed tour (such as street art trails), amazing objects or a quick stop in the landscape, Storytowns is an innovative channel that bridges the gap of knowledge and experiences often lost, overlooked or only available in traditional tourism mediums such as websites, brochures or plaques.
The aim is to seduce the listener into an authentic cultural exchange of connecting to the place through narrative and audio. The hyper-local content is focussed on engaging travellers, visitors, wanderers and the curios, who seek unique and interesting perspectives, histories or features told by the local characters who know them best.
