A half-hour meandering drive through wild forests and mountain views takes you from Geeveston to the famous Tahune Forest Airwalk, where you can stroll over the Huon River among the tree tops. A drive of an hour or so further south takes you to fascinating Southport and, to the west, the Hastings limestone caves and warm thermal springs.
If you drive south via Huonville, on the return north to Hobart turn right just across the Huon bridge and be rewarded with a drive to Cygnet, along the coast past Garden Island and up the D'Entrecasteaux Channel via Woodbridge, Kettering, Snug and Margate.
A marvellous day or half-day option is to take the vehicular ferry at Kettering to picturesque Bruny Island, rich in scenery and coastal pursuits, including splendid fishing and Atlantic salmon farms.
Turn left when entering Kingston to return to Hobart along the old Convict Trail for breathtaking views of the coast. Visit the old Shot Tower.
And you've had a marvellous week! Get more information in the free brochure The Huon Trail.
