Huon, Channel, Bruny
In the waterways and wilderness of the Huon Valley and D'Entrecasteaux Channel south of Hobart there's art and heritage; apple blossom and vineyards; farmers, foresters and fishers. The town of Huonville bustles on the willow-clad banks of the Huon River, which flows quietly past Franklin, where boat-builders learn traditional skills with timber. Further south the towns of Geeveston, Southport and Dover shelter in their bays, and dolomite caves guard their secrets at Hastings and Lune River. The road ends at the tiny settlement of Cockle Creek.
Go as far as you can....We went to the Caves Pool...Trees...Geeveston Tauhane Airwalk....Do the Apple store at Huon brings back memories with all the older stuff...Buy the machine they have for sale Peels apples and Potatoes.REMEMBER how they did it though I forgot it looks easy but you forget. I rang them back and asked NO problem for them to tell you. Between us 2 ladies we both couldnt remember.it cuts cleans the skin offmakes grooves and you can bake the potatoes.
Bruny hasnt got anything really if you go on the off season. everything closes. Still nice to have a ride on the ferry and then have a beer just before you get back onto the ferry.
