Cygnet - Cities, Towns and Localities

When the French navigator Bruni D’Entrecasteaux back in 1793 observed a large number of swans in the area, he named the bay Port des Cygnes (Port of Swans). Visitors today can enjoy this very special place known as Cygnet and Port Cygnet which offers a easy lifestyle that casts a spell over those who visit.

The centre of fruit growing for the Huon Valley, Cygnet also attracts artists and musicians seeking that alternative lifestyle with its own rhythm and creative inspiration.

It is here that artists converge for the annual Cygnet Folk Festival. There are several art studios, craft shops and galleries that showcase the immense talent in the region.

Visitors can explore the Huon River and D’Entrecasteaux Channel, visit some of the other nearby villages and townships, enjoy the local pubs or relax at one of the trendy cafes after a day of inspiring pristine scenery.

Check out our listing of Cygnet accommodation, Huonville accommodation and Huon Valley accommodation. In addition to our listed online travel guide information, contact the local tourism visitor centre for your destination for more attractions, tours, local maps and other information.
