Map of the Huon Valley
There are so many areas to explore in the Huon Valley!
Cygnet is brimming with artists and paddock to plate food experiences.
When you are in Huonville, make sure to stop at Willie Smiths Apple Shed for a cider and Kate Hill Wines and Home Hill Winery for a pinot. Nearby in Glen Huon stop into Glen Huon Dairy for some cheese and fresh bottled milk.
Franklin is a great place to get a taste for Wooden Boat Making and hang out by the beautiful Huon River. Franks Cider House and Cafe is perfect for lunch.
Geeveston has a beautiful Visitor Information Centre run by local volunteers, a platypus walk, and 30 minutes down the road you will find Hartz Mountain National Park and Tahune Adventures.
Dover has a stunning bay called ‘Port Esperance’ overlooked by Adamson’s Peak. Make sure to explore.
Southport is a great place to base yourself on all that the Far South has to offer and is close by to Hastings Caves and Thermal Springs.
Drive the furthest south you can to the end of the road at Cockle Creek and you won’t be disappointed. There are no shops or petrol stations there…but that is part of the attraction. Just beautiful sand, clear blue waters and walks into the wilderness such as the South Cape Bay Track.
