Tasmania Day 5 – Huon Valley

Set off from Electrona to go south on the Huon Trail, home of the Huon Pine. First stop was at the Huon information centre and Honey Pot for some local prickly box honey, mead and postcards. Talking to the local apiarist we discovered that Tasmania doesn’t have african hive beetle (yet) and only get a 1% infection rate of american foul brood as opposed to 3% on the mainland, so say!

Second stop was at Geevston Bakery for a Devonshire cream tea for elevensies. I’ve been hanging out for one for a while. The scone was lovely but I was more than a bit miffed the jam wasn’t locally made given jam fruits are one of Tasmania’s specialties!
