Activities/Attractions: Franklin is the little town time forgot. It still retains that special village atmosphere that is so hard to find - not over developed, not spoiled by tourism, and as pretty as a picture resting on the banks of the beautiful Huon River.

There are restaurants, antique and craft shops to visit, and of course the world famous Wooden Boat Centre. The main street boasts many faithfully restored timber buildings, some featuring Huon pine. (The Huon Valley is named after Huon pine, a timber almost worth its weight in gold).

You'll find us in the Huon Valley, just 35 minutes south of Hobart on the A6 highway. The perfect stop-over on your way to the Tahune Airwalk and Hastings Caves.
Simply the best place to stay either overnight or for a few days as you explore the stunning Huon Valley and its many attractions.
