Port Huon to Geeveston walking track

Inform

For many years, the Huon Valley community has expressed a desire for a walking path that links Port Huon to Geeveston.

Council was recently successful in obtaining a $1,250,000 grant from the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional, Development and Communications for the construction of approximately 3km of walking track to link the two towns. Council has allocated $365,000 to the project.

The project proposal includes a gravel walking track that connects the existing Brownell Street, Geeveston Footpath to Sacred Heart School, providing a pedestrian bridge over the Kermandie River. Following the school, the walking track will cross the Huon Highway at Doodys Hill Road, and continue along the water’s edge via a raised walking track to the Port Huon Sports & Aquatic Centre.

Local contractors will be used to supply and construct the walking track.

A copy of the draft plan can be found here.
