About the neighbourhood
Just 50 minutes drive from Hobart and central to all the attractions of the Huon Valley: 10 minutes to Home Hill Winery or The Apple Museum, 20 minutes to Franklin Eco_cruise, 60 minutes to Hartz Mountains National Park and Tahune Airwalk, 80 minutes to Hastings Caves and Ida Bay Railway. Right onsite is the Mount Misery Walk. Enjoy a 3 hour return walk through oldgrowth and rainforest, sub alpine heathland, to a mounta and a small waterfall. The track is well constructed and zigzags through the sometimes steep terrain. Interpretive panels describe the Aboriginal, early European and current uses and environmental practices.
Getting around
Best to have your own or rental car. Public bus Hobart to Huonville 5 times daily, then taxi to Huon Bush Cabins.
