Willie Smith's Apple Shed is the hottest hut in the Huon Valley: craft ciders, locally sourced lunches, and plenty of space to sit, chat and roll in the hay. They've partnered up with other like-minded locals to throw a mid-winter festival to celebrate the region's apple-picking history.

At its core is a focus on wassailing: the ages-old tradition of scaring nasties out of cider apple trees, from orchard to orchard, in order to bring on a stellar autumn yield.

Now, things may seem a little strange at first: kings, queens, processions, giving gifts to the trees, shouting, banging, fire, candlelight, and so forth, but what else would you expect? And if none of that bobs your Geeveston fanny, that's okay too - there'll be cider, feasting and folk music in abundance.
