Hobart, the nation’s second oldest Capital has a quality of life the envy of all other states. The City’s population live work and play in a thriving community offering a range of lifestyle choices with all amenities in close proximity.

Hundreds of thousands of tourists visit Hobart annually; many take day tours to such sought after areas as Wine Glass Bay at Freycinet on Tasmania’s East Coast, Port Arthur and the world’s best wild brown trout fishery in the Central Highlands.


The Huon trail is a link to other activities in the region - jet boating, cruises to Atlantic salmon farms from Dover and Port Huon, alpine walks in the Hartz Mountains, riverside forest walks in the Southern Forest, shopping for arts and crafts in studios in Margate, Cygnet, Huonville, Franklin and Geeveston, boutique vineyards and in season pick-your-own berry farms, and beach and headland walks on Bruny Island.

The Huon trail is a driving trail. At 24 roadside locations there are dramatically designed, timber crowned signs telling tales of frogs and fossils, logs and lighthouses, tall trees and tall ships, Gondwana plants and Golden Delicious apples, wooden boats and whalers, bandicoots and blackcurrants.
