Journeys : August September 2009
In Tasmania today beef and local wines. Then, after your day of visiting the growers and makers of the region, the Food Trail booklet includes a menu for a memorable evening meal that highlights the produce you’ve collected. Cygnet is a creative paradise for an eclectic and creative group of artists and artisans. Take the Cygnet Art Trail to visit their galleries and working studios in and around the town – you’ll meet potters and painters, furniture makers and jewellers. Take it easy along the Huon Trail T hings are happening at key sites along the Huon Trail, south of Hobart. In Huonville, Cygnet, Franklin and Dover, visitors to this popular and scenic part of the island will find everything they need to know about the region in soon-to-be refurbished information booths. Like the recently redesigned interpretive signage at points of interest along the touring route, the booths will reflect the bold new Huon Trail colours and branding. Use the booths for ideas on things to see and do; to find places to eat and stay; and to make your travel plans for the next day. Those plans should include three innovative and interactive experiences in the area – the Huon Food Trail, the Cygnet Art Trail and the Geeveston Circuit. An initiative of Huon Bush Retreats, the Huon Food Trail lets you become a gourmet ‘hunter-gatherer’ as you follow the seasonal routes to discover oysters and salmon, mushrooms and saffron, grass-fed The Geeveston Circuit is a stroll through the rich history of a town that’s the gateway to the southern forests. The walk makes a loop around the town’s highlights, including the Forest and Heritage Centre, with its interactive displays and exhibits; the Southern Design Centre, which showcases Tasmania’s specialty timbers and the skills of the region’s designers and artists; the Big Log, a massive section of swamp gum; and the Kermandie River, where there’s every chance of spotting a platypus from the viewing platform. The three new trails – and the wider Huon Trail itself – are great ways to discover the many local and regional specialties that make this lovely part of Tasmania unique. Remember that an exploration of the Huon Trail can begin at the Shot Tower in Taroona and take you across to Bruny Island or to the end of Australia’s most southerly road at Cockle Creek. It’s just impossible to experience it all in a single weekend! Put a little spring in your step...
