Lovely River

The Picton river makes a good place to take a driving break to enjoy a picnic while watching the fishermen and birds like we did.

Hired a kayak and did an hour of kayaking on this peaceful river. Saw lots of birds and also of people fishing from the bank. Definitely a good quiet activity to do.

This is definitely worth your travel. Go all the way to tahune airwalk to get an amazing view of Picton River and you can walk across the swinging bridge over the river. Huge stringy bark trees to see along the walks. Sony T miss this out of your travels you won't be disappointed

What a great river to enjoy on the water or just to sit & enjoy the view while having lunch etc. Worth a visit but then again, Tasmania has plenty of spots to enjoy & it would be hard to see everyone of them. Love Tassie!

The whole Huon Valley area is just beautiful. There are lots of quirky eateries and producers. It's easily accessible from Hobart and well worth exploring.
