The pristine Huon Valley is flush with incredible natural beauty. From the flow of the Huon River, as it threads past wilderness, pastoral land and cultivated orchards to escape out through the far south coastline's D'Entrecasteaux Channel, to World Heritage-listed national parks, imbued with mountains, tall forests, caves and iconic bushwalks.

You'll need more than a day to explore the full breadth of this verdant wonderland. Stay for a beat, basing yourself in one of the many gorgeous accommodation choices on offer. 

Lying south of Hobart, the region is also well known for its long history of apple growing, craft cider makers and makers markets, boutique vineyards and quality salmon producers. It's a sublime region for sampling a taste of Tasmania's finest. The best way to do it? Unwinding on a balcony at sunset, or cosying up fireside, a glass of Kate Hill Pinot Noir in hand and your own finely crafted antipasto board of local Huon produce set beside you.

For some inspiration, we've gone ahead and rounded up the best Huon Valley accommodation for your next boutique escape.
