Things to do in the Huon Valley

The Huon Valley is a highlight when it comes to touring Tasmania. The valley and its surrounds are a truly mesmerising part of our island and are home to many passionate producers who throw their doors open to visitors from far and wide.

The picturesque Huon Valley is the perfect place to visit with your family whilst on holidays in Tasmania

Tahune Airwalk

Tahune Airwalk is a favourite Huon Valley attraction. First opened on 1 July 2001, it has since become one of the most visited tourism attractions in Tasmania. The Airwalk is in 357 hectares of special recreational area in the original Tahune Forest Reserve, which borders on 1.6 million hectares of World Heritage listed forest.

Visitors love the breathtaking bird’s-eye views of the forest canopy and, from two spine-tingling swinging bridges, see the Huon and Picton rivers rushing below. Soar like an eagle across the Huon River on the Cable Eagle Hang Glider, enjoy Tasmanian food and wine in the café, and browse the visitor centre – there’s a day of fun and excitement for everyone.
