Geeveston and Huon Valley Activities
Geeveston has become known as “Tasmania’s Forest Town” and one of its attractions are the life size timber statues of local identities featured about the town. Artists’ galleries and restaurants also feature in a town that has all the facilities a visitor could require.
A half hour drive takes you to the famous Tahune Airwalk and Hartz Mountains National Park where there are gorgeous walks, waterfalls and lookouts. You will also marvel at spectacular views to Federation Peak and the South West Wilderness. Hastings Caves and it’s thermal pool are also within a quick drive as is the fully operational Ida Bay Historic Railway.
Continuing south you’ll pass Tasmania’s salmon farms out in the Southern Ocean. There are breathtaking beaches and stunning scenery all the way to the end of the road at Cockle Creek, which is as far south as you can drive in Australia. See the bronze whale sculpture here at the starting point of some wonderful walks which range from a couple of hours to several days.
Wild, spectacular and beautiful Bruny Island is also within easy reach of Cambridge House and is accessed by a quick ferry trip from Kettering. As well as scenic attractions both Bruny Island and the Huon Valley abound with things to see and do, from exhilarating boat rides and hang gliding to golf, fly fishing, kayaking and bowls. But be sure to visit some of the many wineries, galleries, antique shops, gardens, orchards, the sheep cheesery and a selection of timber craft shops. Enjoy the many cafes and restaurants that make the most of the abundant and varied local produce and seafood.
