About Huonville

Huonville is a bustling town, and it is the gateway to the Huon Valley. It is located on the Huon River 39 km southwest of Hobart. This small community is known for its apple orchards, hops fields and timber industry.

Huonville was named by the French Admiral, Bruni D'Entrecasteauxis after Captain Huon de Kermadec, the commander of his support ship.

More than half of Tasmania's apples are grown in the area around Huonville. Throughout the year Huonville produces some of Tasmania's best fresh foods including, luscious plums, cherries, apricots, peaches, apples, pears, honey, mushrooms and seafood. During March the Huon celebrates the annual Taste of the Huon festival which brings growers together to celebrate their harvests.

It is here that Europeans discovered the beautiful Huon Pine, a softwood that is ideal for boat and yacht building. The timber was unfortunately over-harvested leaving the valley almost devoid of this famous pine. A few stands still remain on the Huon River, which are now protected, the commercial forests are today found along the Gordon River in western Tasmania.

The Huon river offers visitors the opportunity to enjoy jet boating or if you want to enjoy a more sedate ride try a pedal boat.

Fishing is also very popular in the valley.

Huonville is also an ideal base to explore Tasmania's magnificent southern forests, and experience the famous Tahune Forest AirWalk, where you can walk on a bridge through the canopy of a mature forest high above the Picton and Huon rivers.
