About Franklin

Franklin is located 35 minutes south of Hobart in the Huon Valley on the A6 highway. It is the ideal stop over on the way to the Tahune Airwalk and Hastings Caves.

Franklin, lying on the banks of the beautiful Huon River has that lovely village atmosphere that is becoming harder to find.

Whilst visiting Franklin enjoy the restaurants, antique and craft shops, the world famous Wooden Boat Centre. The main street has some beautifully restored timber buildings, several featuring huon pine, for which the valley is named.

Franklin became an important settlement after Lady Jane Franklin (the wife of Sir John Franklin, Governor of Van Diemen's Land - 1836-43) bought and distributed land to poor in 1839. Lady Franklin personally interviewed every applicant before handing over the 100 acre allotments.
