Out of the Grey

Any part of the South-East region of Tasmania is accesible as a day-trip from the capital city, Hobart. It ranges from the Mt Field National Park in the west to Bruny Island and the Huon Valley in the East. The South-East is also a gateway for expeditions into the World-Heritage wilderness of the South-West, in particular trail-heads for Federation Peak, Precipitous Bluff and the South Coast Track. The South East also includes the Richmond-Campaigna area and the Tasman Peninsula, to the north-east of Hobart.

The South-East developed as a centre of forestry and agriculture, particularly apple-growing in the Huon Valley. Other important primary industries are grazing, beer hops, and aquaculture. Population centers besides the greater Hobart area are Huonville and Geeveston to the South, Sorell and Richmond to the North, and New-Norfolk to the West.

A limited itinerary should at least include a day-trip to the Tasman Peninsula, Mt Field National Park or the Huon Valley. Those with time to explore could make a weekend of Bruny Island, travel further south to Geeveston or Lune River, or take an extra few days in for a hike at Mt Field, Tasman Penisula or the Hartz Mountains National Parks.
