Explore Southern Tasmania before the secret is out

Unspoilt wilderness and renowned local produce

The Huon Valley and Far South regions are among Tasmania’s best kept secrets. Playing host to some of the most remote and unspoilt wilderness areas and chock full of wildlife, this is a nature-lover’s paradise. To get amongst it, try some of the many nature walks, ranging from a short stroll to the multi-day South Cape Bay walk, or jump aboard a kayak and paddle the tranquil waters of the southern rivers. Explore an ancient dolomite cave or bathe in thermal springs. Take a river cruise or raise your pulse rate with a jet boat ride. Or for something a little slower, visit one of the many excellent wineries or cider bars and sample some of the exquisite local fare.

With Hobart only an hour or so away, the Huon Valley provides a perfect base for a day trip to explore this bustling maritime city. Visit the award-winning Salamanca markets on Saturday, take a ferry to the renowned Museum of Old and New Art (Mona) or enjoy some fresh fish and chips off the punts at the wharf.
