About Huon, Channel and Bruny

Stay247.com has a range of Huon, Channel and Bruny accommodation.

Situated on the banks of the tranquil Huon River and surrounded by the colours of fruit-filled valleys and the peaks of the World Heritage Area, Huonville is a great base for exploring far-south Tasmania.

The Huon Valley generates more than half of Tasmania’s apples. In season you can test your tastebuds on more than 500 varieties, together with apricots, plums, cherries, pears, mushrooms, honey, wine and seafood. Better still, visit in March when the annual Taste of the Huon brings growers together to celebrate their harvests.

Get your heart racing on a jet boat ride up the Huon River or explore it at a more leisurely pace in a paddleboat. A cruise on the Southern Contessa will take you 30 kilometres (18.5 miles) along the river, into the habitats of pelicans, sandpipers and many other waterbirds.

Fishing is popular in the valley’s many open watercourses, or you can barbecue your own catch at the Snowy Range Trout Fishery.

Further south are Tasmania’s magnificent southern forests, where you can stroll through the canopy of a mature forest high above the confluence of the Picton and Huon rivers on the Tahune Forest AirWalk.

You may even find your own piece of Huon pine on your travels through the valley. Although these slow-growing trees are now protected, timber on the forest floor is can be used as craft wood for hundreds of years and pieces are available in stores in Huonville and further down the valley.

The French explorer Bruni D’Entrecasteaux named the Huon River in 1792, after Huon de Kermandec, captain of one of his ships. The town today has a population of approximately 1,700. Huonville is a 40-minute drive south of Hobart along the A6 highway.

Bruny - Wild seascapes and sweeping surf beaches, wonderful coastal walks, birdlife and wildflowers, tall forests and an historic lighthouse are all features of South Bruny National Park. Access to Bruny Island is a 20-minute crossing by vehicular ferry from Kettering, 35 minutes' drive south of Hobart. Head south, crossing at the narrow Neck (the isthmus connecting North and South Bruny Island) to reach the park boundary near Adventure Bay or south of Lunawanna. Walks include the coastal track to Penguin Island and Fluted Cape, from Adventure Bay; beach walks on Cloudy Bay; or the full-day circuit of the Labillardiere Peninsula. The lighthouse at Cape Bruny was built between 1836 and 1838 with convict labour. 

You’ll enjoy your stay at Huon, Channel and Bruny.
