Geeveston (25 minutes drive south of Huonville, 1 hour from Hobart) is the gateway town into the southern forests. Made famous as the location of the filming of the television series Rosehaven. A good stopping place on your way to Tahune Airwalk and Hartz Mountain National Park.

This small timber town is named after the Geeves family. The main street features a collection of hand-carved wooden statues of local identities each with a plaque explaining their personal stories.

Right in the centre of town, you will find the Geeveston Town Hall Visitor Centre. Here you will find some friendly locals who will enthusiastically help you with some advice on your visit to the Huon Valley. They have a large range of locally made arts, crafts, and produce for sale as well as a display of interesting information on the region’s history and key features.
