About Geeveston

Geeveston is a small timber and apple growing town in the Huon Valley, 62 km south west of Hobart on the Huon Highway. During the apple season the fields beside the road are thick with apple trees sagging under the weight of their fruit.

The town was named after William Geeves, an English settler who was given a land grant by Lady Jane Franklin. Today Geeveston is home to the Forest and Heritage Centre which features displays on forest management and products.

The Geeveston Community Church dates to the 1880s. It is the most prominent building on the highway and is well known for its tiny steeple which appears out of proportion to the rest of the building.

Hartz Mountains National Park
15 km from Geeveston lies the Hartz Mountains National Park a spectacular combination of glacial lakes and unusual flora and fauna. Hartz Mountain has an elevation of 1255 m and forms part of a dolerite plateau. The flora in the park includes alpine moorland, Tasmanian waratah, Tasmanian snow gums, yellow gum and alpine heath.

The Swamp Gum
