We had an excellent tour of the Huon Valley last week. We had a great time in the Hastings Caves and treetops at Tahune Airwalk. Our guide Renke was very informative and my son especially was delighted to learn all about trees, apples, and this beautiful part of Australia. It was an experience we’ll treasure.

Enjoy a great escape from the Tassie capital to the island’s tranquil south on this Huon Valley Tour from Hobart with Hastings Caves and Tahune Airwalk. It offers a day of discovery in the valley’s patchwork landscape of emerald green pastures, bountiful apple orchards, pristine bushland, ancient forests, and quaint Huon River townships. You’ll fall head over heels in love with this slice of paradise!

Departing the CBD at 8am, your Huon Valley Tour from Hobart begins with a relaxed two-hour drive south from the capital and deep into the Huon region. The first stop is Hastings Caves and Thermal Springs — a shimmering subterranean world that will take your breath away. Led by a specialist guide, you’ll explore the largest accessible dolomite caves in Australia. See stunning stalactites, stalagmites, columns, and shawls.

You may even want to take a quick dip in the onsite swimming pool, which is fed by a thermal spring. The naturally heated water is a delightful 28 degrees Celsius all year round!

From there, the tour heads towards fabulous Tahune Adventures — one of Tasmania’s top attractions. Between October and April, you’ll make a stop at the historic Kermandie Hotel. Built in 1932, this characterful pub is still the heart and soul of the town of Port Huon. Enjoy a delicious lunch (at your own expense), accompanied by spectacular views over the Huon River marina. In the colder months, lunch can be purchased at Tahune Adventures’ café.

Following lunch, you’ll have around two hours at Tahune Adventures to soak up the beauty of the Tahune Forest. Walk among the treetops on the Airwalk (a steel walkway suspended 50 metres above the forest floor), do a forest walk, or brave the swinging bridge across the Huon River.

Your Huon Valley Tour from Hobart ends with drop-off in the CBD at around 5pm.
