The Huon Valley is a vibrant, semi-rural community, 30 minutes south of Tasmania’s capital city, Hobart. It is Australia’s southernmost municipal area with a population of more than 16,000 people.
The Valley’s 5,497 square kilometres are dominated by meandering waterways and forested hills. The region’s fertile landscape produces a dazzling array of quality foods that has helped Tasmania earn its reputation as a food lover’s paradise.
The Huon Valley is also a haven for yachting and boating enthusiasts with easy access to the Huon River and D’Entrecasteaux Channel. These waters offer world class fishing, sailing, diving and rowing.
The area is also renowned for its produce, award-winning wine, cider, seafood, fruit and other gourmet delicacies. The gourmet food festival, Taste of the Huon, held each year in March, is a weekend celebration of the best produce the Valley has to offer.
