The small township of Geeveston is at the southern end of the beautiful Huon Valley and is the gateway to the Arve River forests and Hartz Mountains National Park. Apple orchards grow in the lush green valleys nearby and during autumn, you can buy bags of Pink Lady, Crofton, Red Delicious, Granny Smith and Fuji apples from roadside stalls.
Surrounded by the dense forests of southern Tasmania, the town is the administrative centre for the region’s timber industries and once the focal point of dissent in Tasmania’s forestry wars. The town’s forestry heritage is evident in the woodcarvings of local historical figures found around the town, with accompanying stories telling of their exploits.
Many artisans and crafters have made Geeveston home and there’s a number of beautiful cafes, bakeries and roadhouses in town. There is also a large playground for kids and fenced dog park, so Geeveston is the perfect place for a rest stop-off on your drive South.
Other activities nearby are the Hasting Caves and Thermal Springs.
Geeveston is a 1-hr drive (60 km) south of Hobart.
