On the Huon River, in the heart of Huonville
Relax and Enjoy this Unique stay on the banks of the Huon River, right in the heart of Huonville. This homestead has been in the family since it was built in the late 1800’s. A peaceful and relaxing spot, it has bought much joy to the extended family and all who have enjoyed visiting and staying in her over the years.
Less than 5 minutes walk to the centre of town and a great base from which to venture out and explore the Huon Valley, this stay will provide all who stay in her with truly pleasurable experiences and unforgettable memories. Imagine relaxing on the verandah, taking in the sun’s rays, enjoying the tranquillity of the river and the surrounds. Or may be sitting on the water’s edge and dipping your toes in the Huon or dropping a fishing line or two into the water. Then take a stroll along the esplanade and into the centre of Huonville.
The property is on 2 acres of prime water front, nothing else will compare if you are looking for a property on the water front.
If you are into fishing we provide a number of options to fish the huon river from two singe man kayaks to a small boat to provide ready access to the river and the elusive brown trout in the snags outside river front estate drift up the river casting into the snags and darker voids of the river.
Angling Notes for he Huon River is best described in three general sections:
The tidal reaches of the Huon River below the Huonville Bridge are wide, deep and slow moving and harbour plenty of resident and sea-run brown trout, some of which grow to trophy size, escapee Atlantic salmon and rainbow trout. There is good shore access at many locations between Huonville and Port Huon on both sides of the river although a boat is useful in this section.
Trophy fish tend to lurk deep during the day and for best results you need to get your lure right down amongst the drowned roots and logs - snags and break-offs have to be accepted as a part of the challenge. The edges of rips and currents are also good holding places for trout.
Fishing is at its best in spring when sea-run trout and resident brown trout are chasing whitebait that tend to swim up along the edge of the main current. These whitebait ‘runs’ comprise of juvenile galaxia species, Tasmanian smelt (Retropinna tasmanica) and the Tasmanian whitebait (Lovettia sealii).
Trout also like to ambush whitebait from cavities in the bank or from the calm water down current of small points and bars. The Tasmanian whitebait often spawns on shallow reefs, while other species (galaxias and smelt) frequent the same places. Consequently you will find that some rapids and riffles are renowned springtime hot spots, just below the Huonville bridge being a classic example.
Best time of year: September to December
The mid-reaches between Huonville and Judbury are characterised by steep, forest lined banks with deep drop-offs and the occasional rapid. We have identified the best spots to access the river which can be productive for whitebait feeders early in the season and also for lure casting and fly fishing.
Best time of year: Summer months when the river is low.
The upper reaches of the Huon between Judbury and the Picton River at Tahune are surrounded by dense forest. The bank side vegetation is almost impenetrable and most of the water is too fast to wade therefore the access points at the major river crossings provide the best opportunities for angling. The summer months are recommended when the flows are lower and access along the river banks easier. Above the Picton River confluence the Huon River cascades through steep rainforest. The only convenient access is via the Huon walking track which extends into the Southwest National Park above Manuka Creek.
Please note Park Pass and Bait fishing is not permitted in National Parks
