For PRIVATE GUIDED TOURS telephone (03) 6264 0326

SIGHTS: Huonville is the largest town in the south west and a good place to stay, if you are touring this area. It is in the apple growing country and is very picturesque, when the apples are in bloom in spring.

ROUTE: From HOBART drive south on the A6 Huon Highway for half an hour and you are in Huonville. Alternatively from Kingston drive south on the B68 Channel Highway. This does a picturesque tour of the Channel Coast. It takes about two hours to do the complete coastal route. If you diverge West to Cygnet, you can cut the journey time down considerably.

Leaving Huonville you must ensure that you are on the A6 Huon Highway, if you are intending to go to the south west. If you are going to BRUNY ISLAND or the east, then you must take the B68 Channel Highway. This is because Huonville is divided by the Huon River and the only place, where you can cross the Huon River is at Huonville.

Mount Sleeping Beauty can be reached by driving north from Huonville to Grove on the main A6 Huon Highway. At Grove drive north on C617 to the start of the walk to Sleeping Beauty.
