Geeveston is a small township nestled in the lower reaches of the scenic Huon Valley. It has a strong apple growing and forestry heritage and today caters for travellers exploring the nearby forests, Hartz Mountains National Park, and Picton and Huon rivers.
Surrounded by rolling hills and the nearby mountains of the Hartz Mountains National Park, Geeveston has a range of shops with local art works and local products for sale, eateries and a main street full of hand-carved timber sculptures of famous locals.
Apple orchards grow in the lush green valleys nearby and during autumn visitors can buy buckets of Pink Lady, Crofton, Red Delicious, Granny Smith and Fuji apples from roadside stalls.
There's also a creative community of artists and makers who sell their wares on the main street.
Geeveston is a 1-hr drive (60 km) south of Hobart.
- Bushwalk to the summit of Hartz Peak in the Hartz Mountains National Park and see the south-west wilderness in all its beauty
- Take a dip in an outdoor thermal springs pool (terrific in winter) or a tour of Hastings Cave.
