Welcome to Huon Valley


The Huon Hwy traces the Huon River south, passing the settlements of Franklin, Castle Forbes Bay and Port Huon. These were once important shipping ports for apples, but nowadays the old wharves and packing sheds are decaying like old fruit. Nearby Ranelagh is an agricultural hub, while strung-out Franklin is the oldest town in the Huon Valley. The wide, reedy riverscape here is one of Australia’s best rowing courses.
