The Huon Valley follows the Huon River in southern part of the state. Tasmania is known as the "Apple Isle", and the majority of apples (and other fruit) are produced in the Huon region. Roadside stalls selling the local products are commonplace. Huonville is the largest town in the region.

The Huon also serves as a gateway to the Hartz Mountains National Park, entered via the turnoff at Geeveston. Slightly to the west of the river is Port Cygnet, the associated town of Cygnet being the centre of local berry production.
