Liveability and Prosperity

The Huon Valley is a great place to live, work, invest and produce.

As Australia’s southernmost municipal area the region extends west from the Wellington ranges to Port Davey and south to Tasmania’s southern tip at South East Cape with the southernmost driving location being Cockle Creek. Its 5,497 square kilometre range is dominated by meandering waterways, forested hills, rich fertile landscapes, and stunning and clean waterways.

Just a 30-minute drive from Tasmania’s capital city of Hobart, the area provides inspiration to many innovative, creative individuals and professional businesses, all of whom contribute to the Huon Valley’s appeal as a great destination to not only visit, but call home. Offering an idyllic lifestyle, the Huon Valley is on the cusp of great opportunity for a bright and prosperous future.

The Huon Valley’s regional identity reveals the truth and reasons behind why we pursue and enjoy the lives we have chosen here. By embracing the Huon Valley’s brand and identity, we can maintain a clear, consistent and shared direction, and together contribute to building its presence, and benefit from its growth and increasing strength.
