The Southeast

Still harbours, misty valleys, a fringe of wilderness – Tasmania’s southeast has much to entice. The apple-producing heartland of the Apple Isle, this fertile area also churns out cherries, apricots, Atlantic salmon, wines, mushrooms, cheeses, vodka…and apple cider! The wide, tea-coloured Huon River remains the region's lifeblood and pretty much everything that claims 'southernmost in Australia' is here.
