Local Attractions

Cygnet is a small town of approximately 1,000 people, and is situated in the Huon Valley. It is approximately 45 minutes southwest of Hobart and 12 minutes from Huonville. Cygnet was originally named in 1793 by French navigator Admiral Bruny D’Entrecasteaux during a voyage in search of a missing explorer. Because of the number of black swans in the bay, he used his own language to name the inlet Port de Cygnet Noir (Black Swan Port), which was later changed to Cygnet.

The town is the centre of a fruit growing district now favoured by retirees and artists, due largely to the beautiful scenery in the area. It has a lovely harbor worth a visit. Some local attractions include cherry orchards, craft shops which display some of Tasmania's finest art, great local restaurants and cafes like "The Red Velvet Lounge ", the Hartzview and Panorama Vineyards. Events in Cygnet include the Cygnet Folk Festival (2nd weekend of January) small film festivals and several art exhibitions are also held in the town.
