Explore Tasmania's stunning south with a local private guide
This tour starts with a drive south from Hobart into the main apple-growing region of the Huon Valley, where we stop to discover some of the history of this area in the Apple Shed museum and café. The journey continues on into the beautiful Southern Forests, among some of the tallest trees in the world.
At the Tahune Airwalk visitors can experience this extraordinary environment from above the tree canopy, towering more than 45m above the forest floor! We will then explore the Huon pine forest bushwalk where you will discover the amazing, endemic Huon Pine - some of these trees are more than 2000 years old.
We finish our forest experience with a visit to the Forest Heritage Centre at Geeveston, before returning to Hobart.
This tour starts from Hobart, driving south to Huonville where we have a brief stop. We reach the Southern Forests by late-morning, and enjoy lunch at the Tahune Airwalk, before heading on to Geeveston. We will be back in Hobart by 5pm. My tours are very flexible, and we could also stop at the Wooden Boat Centre in Franklin, the craft furniture factory in Geeveston, and any of several short forest walks, if time permits. We can also visit any location we pass that catches your attention - just let me know and I will do my best to accommodate your wishes!
