The Huon Trail

external image cygnet-seven-inch-beach.jpg
external image 2367139.jpg
The ‘Huon Trail’ begins south of Hobart. It takes you through the Huon Valley, D’Entrecasteaux Channel & Bruny Island – a region of waterways & wilderness; art, craft & heritage; apple blossom and vineyards; farmers, foresters and fishermen.
  • Follow the Huon Trail stopping at the sign posts along the way. Look for the sea eagle and the hand-carved celery top pine-framed signs at 24 locations in the region.

  • If you want to ride wild rivers, meander through peaceful countryside, climb tall mountains in untamed forests, wander deserted and pristine beaches, sail sheltered waterways, partake of fine food and wines, browse in quaint crafts antiques and art shops or just relax and enjoy the stunning scenery, the friendly locals are waiting to share it with you. Come and visit the Huon Trail.

No trip to Hobart and Southern Tasmania is complete without a drive along the Huon Trail.
  • The Huon Valley and the coasts of Port Huon and the D'Entrecasteaux Channel are places of natural beauty, perfect for a relaxing holiday, a short break or even a day trip from Hobart.

  • Rich in maritime and rural heritage and populated friendly creative people, the region is known as much for its gorgeous scenery as it huon pine, apple orchards and boutique wineries and gourmet specialities.

  • By big city standards, the roads are always quiet and there is something different around every corner.
Take in the the fruit growing district of the Huon River valley, Port Huon, Bruny Island and the vast expanse
of the D'Entrecasteaux Channel.

Geeveston is nestled in the lower reaches of the scenic Huon Valley.
  • It has a strong apple growing and forestry heritage and today caters for travellers exploring the nearby forests, Hartz Mountains National Park, and Picton and Huon rivers.
  • Surrounded by rolling hills and the nearby mountains of the Hartz Mountains National Park, Geeveston has a range of shops, eateries and local attractions and a main street full of hand-carved timber sculptures of famous locals.
Apple orchards grow in the lush green valleys nearby and during autumn visitors can buy buckets of Pink Lady, Crofton, Red Delicious, Granny Smith and Fuji apples from roadside stalls.

History of Geeveston

In 1849 William Geeves settled the site of Geeveston. The early years proved a struggle, dense bush a barrier to settlement
  • The construction of the Speedwell timber mill in 1871 and the Huon Timber Company Mill in 1902 provided Geeveston with an industrial base, the Timber Workers Union ensuring that workers were well organised.
  • Following a violent strike in 1921–22 the Company closed its Geeveston mill in 1925 and Geeveston suffered population loss, but the start of banking (1926) and arrival of electricity (1928) assisted slow but steady progress, based on apples and timber.

Britain's entry into the European Common Market curtailed apple exports, and in 1991 the Whale Point wood-pulp pellet site closed, but the opening of a branch of the Bendigo Bank, and a major tourist attraction, the Tahune Airwalk (2001), brought new optimism.
  • There's also a creative community of artists and makers who sell their wares on the main street and at a regular market.
  • Geeveston is a 1-hr drive (60 km) south of Hobart.[1]
  • The main Hobart to Huonville road was not opened until 1855 and the road to Geeveston and Dover was built abound 1883. Prior to that time the main mode of transport was by sea.

Forestry Tasmania (Geeveston) estimate that 30,000 people now visit Arve Loop Road annually to witness the effects of logging and regeneration in a working forest.
  • This place has been identified and assessed in the context of the Tasmanian Comprehensive Regional Assessment/Regional Forest Agreement (RFA) process. The national estate values identified in this RFA region are described in the Tasmanian national estate report (PLUC 1997) and its accompanying maps.
  • Forestry Tasmania (Geeveston) estimate that 30,000 people now visit Arve Loop Road annually to witness the effects of logging and regeneration in a working forest.
The Arve Road is the main road to get from Geeveston to Tahune AirWalk. It is sealed, but there are small patches of gravel where the road is being repaired, so drive cautiously.
  • It is recommended by Forestry Tasmania (who manages this area) that you are always mindful because the road is primarily used by forestry-related vehicles, and log trucks. Also depending on the time of day, traffic to and from Tahune can be quite busy.
  • Scattered along the Arve Road are many great nature walks and lookouts, and it is an excellent way to start or finish a trip to the Tahune AirWalk; or as a separate day exploring.
  • The Arve Road is great for short walks, and really gives you an insight into the history of the forest with minimal effort. Walks along this road range from a short stroll, to 40 minutes return.
    • The Look-in Lookout is probably the best place to start. Further along the track is the Lookout itself, which has a map of all the different walks/lookouts along the Arve Road, and also some stories about the history of the surrounding forest from those who have worked in them.
    • The next stop is Keogh’s Creek.
    • The Big Tree Lookout, and the word big really cannot describe the size of this tree.
    • The West Creek Lookout.
    • The Zig Zag track. The track has been named ‘the Zig Zag track’ because it does quite that; following an old packhorse trail, through forest which hasn’t been logged. This track is less developed than the others but is still worth the effort. Here the trees have some damage and many are rotting due to strong winds that occurred some years ago.

The Hartz Track has been associated with several important phases in Tasmania's development. It was cut to stimulate and facilitate the mineral exploration of central and western Tasmania.
  • It then became an access route for the growing recreational use of the Hartz Mountains, at a period when recreational tourism was becoming an important component of Tasmania's economy. (Criterion A4).
The Hartz track is intact to an uncommon extent, in that a number of tracks with a similar history have been upgraded as roads or otherwise substantially altered over time.
  • The track appears to have retained its original alignment, width and formation, especially in the lower sections, and is hence a good example of foot tracks of period. (Criteria B2 & D2)
Hartz Track, Kermandie Kalls and Picnic Area is significant as a forest place of aesthetic value, important to a community for aesthetic characteristics held in high esteem or otherwise valued by the community (Criterion E.1). The Hartz Track is valued for its spectacular mountain peaks, glacial lakes, landforms and tall forests.
  • This place is important as a forest place of social value, being highly valued by a community for reasons of religious, spiritual, cultural, educational, or social associations. (Criterion G.1)
  • The Geeveston and Cygnet communities have had a long and continuous association with the Hartz Track, having used it for many years to access the mountains.
  • The Track is a highly valued symbol of the past for local people and the Kermandie Falls is valued as a meeting place by them.
  • Indicative Place on the Register of the Naional Estate

  • The timber industry is a major Tasmanian industry and has been operating since the early nineteenth century.
  • The introduction of steam technology from the 1970s led to new technologies, including log haulers and the associated tramways and log haulers. This form of operation included housing or sheltering workers in remote locations. (Criterion A.4, D.2)
The Harveys Creek Spur Huts are uncommon surviving and relatively good examples of timber workers huts associated with this major phase of timber harvesting. While such huts must have been common, very few have been identified and of those the Harveys Creek Spur Huts appear to be in better condition and display a higher level of integrity. (Criterion B.2)
  • The area around the huts includes a log landing and tram line which form an associated complex of sites and provides the historic context for the huts. (Criteria A4, B2 and D2). The log hauler sub-complex is a good and intact example of a timber log hauler site, the most intact such site in the Southern Forests (Criteria A.4 and D.2).
  • Indicative Place on the Register of the Naional Estate

Originally built by the Geeves Family in the 1800s, the grand historical residence of Hillcrest is as old as the township itself.
  • Being a residence of prominence in Geeveston for many years, Hillcrest has served many purposes.
  • From humble beginnings as four-room cottage for the timber mill manager, the present day residence was built in the late 1800s as a guest house.
  • Hillcrest has since been used to host local community meetings, such as the inaugural Geeveston CWA, and the staging location for many rescue missions for walkers lost on Hartz Mountain.
  • Since the mid 1900s and continuing on today, Hillcrest is being used a private residence.

Huonville
Huonville is a town on the Huon River, in the south-east of Tasmania, Australia. It is the seat of the Huon Valley Council area and lies 38 km south of Hobart on the Huon Highway. At the 2006 census, Huonville had a population of 1,806 and at the 2011 census had a population of 1,741. Wikipedia

The first Europeans to set eyes on the Huon River were the crew commanded by Admiral Bruni d'Entrecasteaux. The river was named by him in honour of his second in command, Captain Huon de Kermadec. The name is preserved today in many features: the town, the river, the district and so on. The first European settlers were William and Thomas Walton in 1840.

Huonville was not originally intended as the site of a town. Nearby Ranelagh was laid out as the town of Victoria in colonial days. Huonville grew around the bridge crossing the Huon River and hotels at the bridge. It was officially declared a town in 1891.[3]


Today the Huon Valley is best known as one of Tasmania's primary apple growing areas. Once enormous in its extent, the significance of the industry has declined steadily since the 1950s and today cherries and fish farming are the rising commercial stars of the district.

Most of the Egg Islands are in a natural or near-natural condition and incorporate significant nature conservation values. Important wetland and rushland vegetation communities occupy much of the southern part of the islands. In addition to this, the northern sections of the islands support rare and endangered Eucalyptus ovataforest and woodland, being the largest remnant in south-east Tasmania.
  • The relatively intact vegetation communities of the islands comprise valuable habitat for a range of fauna, especially waterbirds. There is evidence that the Egg Islands provide habitat for seven threatened or significant bird species, one threatened fish, one threatened amphibian and two threatened invertebrates.

The Egg Islands are a relatively recent landform having been created by the accumulation of fine sediment in the lower reaches of the Huon River.
  • They are considered to be the most important and least disturbed of this class of estuarine depositional landform in Tasmania, and they are still growing with expansion of the mud flats in the south.
  • Even though they are now in a largely natural condition, the Egg Islands cannot be considered an untouched wilderness. Indeed, they have played an important part in the history and development of the Huon Valley.
  • While there is no known evidence of Aboriginal occupation, the islands would almost certainly have provided a food source, principally swan eggs, for the local indigenous people.
  • Since the early days of European settlement the islands were used for various forms of primary production and recreation including stock grazing, orchards, vegetable growing, timber harvesting, duck hunting and greyhound training.
  • Little evidence of this use remains on the islands today, with the most significant heritage feature being a canal across the south island, first built by convicts in 1838.

When fully developed, the industry enompassed a broad range of activities and associated enterprises, including the orchards, packing processes and final export. The Former Standard Case Manufacturing Company is of historic cultural heritage significance as the only known extant apple case making factory in Tasmania, and possibly Australia, retaining a relatively high degree of integrity.
These characteristics are found in the external form, construction methods and the detailing, both externally and internally. As a class of place, the factory represents a process that is no longer practiced.

Heritage Listed in 1999. This building is of historic heritage significance because of its potential to demonstrate the principal characteristics of a single storey weatherboard Federation domestic building.
Description: It is a single storey weatherboard building with hipped and gabled roof forms, half-timbered detailing in the gable end, a bay window and enclosed verandah.
  • ARCHITECTURAL STYLE:- Federation domestic
  • Tasmanian Heritage Register #3554
  • Below are extensive notes from Roderick Ewins. former owner, now a resident of White Ridge, towards Port Arthur. (2016)
The LandThe original land grant was to Eliza Walton, famous as the girl who rowed people across the Huon at a point near Ironstone Creek, in the days when there was no bridge and the road stopped at Huonville. At some stage, though I was never able to discover when, she must have sold the land (again, we don’t know how MUCH land in all) to V.J. Skinner.The houseThe original house was built in the period between 1896 and 1900; we have not been able to establish the exact year though the Heritage Register lists it as 1900.
  • It was built as his home by V.J. Skinner, a man of some standing who owned various enterprises in the Huon valley, including sawmills, orchards, and a large apple drying works that stood on the bank of the Huon below the house, roughly where Websters now stands.
  • V.J's son the late Jim Skinner was for many years Warden of the Huon Municipality, and there are other descendants still living in the Valley.
  • V.J. also built the house opposite the drive of this house, now called "Walton", for one of his sons, and the small house opposite Scenic Hill Road (2711 Huon Hwy) that adjoins the property. We have been told that was built for someone that worked for Skinner.
BuilderThe desigher/builder of the Skinner house was J. Lomas, a skilled builder who was the inventor of the first apple grading machine, which he successfully marketed in the US and Europe, and an example of which is in the Huon Apple Museum situated on the highway leading into Huonville from Hobart. Mr Lomas designed and built several of the more prestigious homes in the area, including that which is now

Renovation and Extensions
The house was the first in this part of Southbridge. An early photograph shows it standing in splendid isolation on the hillside — no houses in sight and Scenic Hill still treed and completely devoid of houses.
  • It was subsequently extended and modified in three identifiable stages.
  • Initially it was of a modest size, and had a twin-hipped roof, the frame of which is still inside the roof today — they merely extended the sides up to join in the present very high pitch. This was done during the 191?s, at which time the riverview rooms were added. This I was able to deduce from a complete break in the floor-bards, and also the fireplaces in those two rooms were located in what had been river-facing windows (the outlines of which were still visible in the original rooms).
  • The verandah was built at that time and extended around the north/northwest corner. It provided the main entry to the house. All access was still at that time from the river, access being gained up the hill to the sandstone/concrete steps on the west side of the house. One then walked around the verandah and into the front door which is still on the northern end. The road to Franklin had yet to be built, after which the main access to the house was reversed to the south end.
OwnersIn the 1930s the Skinners sold the house to Rance Heron, another local of some standing who had orchards, including some on the land that now fronts onto the Huon Highway, and all of the land below the house down to Coolstore Road. During the 1930s the Herons had further modifications done. These were undertaken by a brother of Joe Kruse (can’t remember his name) but unlike his grandfather he was not a trained or highly-skilled builder, and the workmanship in his extensions is noticeably inferior.
  • Several years after the death of Rance Heron and his wife, in 1972 the house was purchased from their two sons Bill and Don, by Roderick and Beverley Ewins. Rod was an artist and lecturer at the Tasmanian School of Art, University of Tasmania, and Bev Ewins was a librarian and senior administrator with the State Library of Tasmania.
  • Thus in its hundred plus life the house has had only three owners, each for over thirty years. It speaks to the fact that it is a beautiful home to live in, and generations of children have been fortunate to be raised in it.

Huon Island is just an hour drive — and a ten minute boat trip — from Hobart

Huon Island is an island with an area of 47 hectares in south-eastern Australia. It is part of the Partridge Island Group, lying close to the south-eastern coast of Tasmania, in theD'Entrecasteaux Channel between Bruny Island and the mainland. The island has a small human population and has been subjected to intensive agricultural activities in the past.

In 1792/93, Bruny d'Entrecasteaux sighted and named Huon Island after his second in command; Huon de Kermandec: an island cluster within the D'Entrecasteaux barrier reef in the New Caledonian archipelago, comprising four islets; Huon, Leleizour, Fabre, and Surprise, each about 0.5 mile (1 km) in diameter was named at around this time.
  • Those islets have no permanent human residents but also have a significant bird life.
In 1802, Captain Nicolas Baudin described Huon Island; a small island at the entrance to the port (Port Cygnet) in these terms:
  • “All its surface was overgrown with vegetation, trees and shrubs, which gave the appearance of a beautiful grove”
Another, as yet unsourced French explorer described Huon Island as: “.... an isle of tall trees”
In 1803, Lieutenant Governor Collins, en route from Hobart to Cygnet in the company of the Reverend Knopwood, noted;
  • “I see a beautiful island...in the mouth of the river, an island thickly wooded”

Australia experienced the full evolution of the British penal process and thus reflects all the themes underlying the world's story of convict transportation. The probation system was a theme within this process, but a story unique to Tasmania.
  • Huon Island offers a tangible reminder to the probation period, and in turn demonstrates a role in the human occupation and evolution of the State, such as early settlement patterns and aspects of the regions social, economic and political history.

Convict Probation Station Remains on Huon Island

The Huon Island probation out-station is of historic cultural heritage significance because of its association with the life and work of people and groups of people that were important in Tasmania's history, specifically, Tasmanias Governors of State, Sir Eardley-Wilmot and Captain William Denison.
  • The failure of probation was largely responsible for the downfall of Lt-Governor Eardley-Wilmot, and it turned the majority of colonists into implacable opponents of transportation itself.
  • More than eighty probation stations operated in various locations, for varying periods, throughout the settled districts. Often hastily and poorly built, few remain, and most of those in ruins.
  • Remains of the Huon Island probation out-station are of historic heritage significance because they have the potential to yield valuable information of an archaeological nature that may contribute to a greater understanding of Tasmanias convict past.

Description: The remains of the Huon Island out-station are reported as consisting of a dwelling, cell foundations, well and fences (Huon Valley News 23 November 1996, p 15).
  • While this particular property has no built remains from the convict period it was part of the convict landscape and thus has the potential for subsurface features.

Lune River Area
The most popular fossicking area in southern Tasmania is Lune River, which produces mostly lapidary material.
  • River materials include agate, carnelian, onyx and sardonyx, jasper, petrified wood and petrified fern. Occasionally agate geodes have vughs with clear quartz crystals inside, rarely citrine or amethyst.
  • The materials are concentrated in an underground gravel layer of variable depth. In some places around Lune River you can see the material strewn on the surface, especially after logging. In other places the gravel layer is meters below the ground.
Fossicking in the area yields petrified fern (commonly, but incorrectly, described as manfern), agate, petrified wood and jasper.
  • The petrified fern is highly prized in lapidary circles and this is one of the few sources of the material known within Tasmania.
  • The material is derived from the weathering of some Jurassic basalt and sedimentary rocks and is geologically unique in Tasmania, and therefore of geological significance.
  • see Boris and Chrystine’s fantastic collection of Tasmanian minerals at Lunaris Gemstones, 175 Lune River Road.

LR1. Actaeon Island Game Reserve, Catamaran, TAS, Australia

Aerial View of Actaeon Island, Tasmania by Roger Barnes
Aerial View of Actaeon Island, Tasmania by Roger Barnes

Actaeon Island is a 15.65 ha dolerite island game reserve in south-eastern Australia off Southport Lagoon (largest island to the Eastern end of this map).
It is part of the Actaeon Island Group, lying close to the south-eastern coast of Tasmania, at the southern entrance to the D'Entrecasteaux Channel between Bruny Island and the mainland. There is a navigation beacon on the highest point, 14 m asl
Actaeon Island Game Reserve,
Actaeon Island Game Reserve,


The island, particularly the lower, southern part is completely surrounded by wave-worn dolerite cobbles and these form a narrow tombolo, some 100 m long, which links the two bedrock parts of the island. Ridges and terraces on the tombolo, and a general lack of vegetation (compared to the islands), indicate it is continually reworked by storm waves (Criteria: A.2, D.1).

Interestingly, the critically endangered orange-bellied parrot is historically known from the Actaeon Islands Game Reserve. Other heath birds include the southern emu-wren and the striated field wren.
  • On the evening of 12 March 1835 the George III, a convict transportation vessel, enroute from Great Britain to the colony, struck a reef directly offshore from the Actaeon conservation area. The ship quickly began to break up. Convicts were confined to the hold at gunpoint until the ship’s longboat was launched and taking its first load of occupants to the safety of the nearby shore.
  • The resultant loss of life from this shipwreck means it still stands as Tasmania’s third worst maritime accident.
  • None of the ship’s officers lost their lives, nor any soldiers. However 128 convicts, three children, the wife of a soldier and two crew members were drowned. In 1839 a monument, in the form of an inscribed tomb, was placed on Southport Bluff to record the event. (George 111 Monument).

The area covers most of the catchment of the short coastal stream, Cox Creek. Swampy sedgelands cover the flat valley floor. On the seaward slopes of the Bathurst Range are found rainforests dominated by myrtle, leatherwood and horizontal. The vulnerable plant, LOMATIA TASMANICA, is found in this forest. The very popular south coast walking track traverses the broad fine white sand beach.

The 425 hectare Ida Bay State Reserve is managed for the protection of its historic, recreational and natural values.
  • A narrow gauge railway, built around 1920, and extensively upgraded in the 1940s is located within the State reserve. It runs along the southern shore of the Lune River estuary and terminates at Deephole Bay.
  • The railway was originally established to transport limestone from Ida Bay quarries to vessels berthed first within the Lune River Estuary, and later at Deephole Bay. The railway has, discontinuously since 1981, been operated under a lease agreement as a tourist attraction. There is access to Southport Lagoon and King George III monument via railway operation.
  • Aboriginal middens are present in the reserve. The area is the habitat for plant species with restricted distributions in Tasmania, CAESIA ALPINA (r2) and CALADENIA VULGARIS (r3).

LR8. Lune River Geological Sites Lune River Road, Lune River, TAS, Australia

external image thumbnail.pl?rt55221

Lune River Geoheritage Site is important for its geoheritage values. That is, it contains features or processes which demonstrate the principal characteristics of the regional geodiversity (geology, landforms, soils), or which are unusual or outstanding aspects of it.
  • Geodiversity has intrinsic value within any systematic approach to heritage identification and conservation. It is also fundamental to the integrity of broader ecological processes, contributing to the richness and interest of our environment, and provides opportunities for scientific study of the earth's development.
  • The two first order geological provinces in Tasmania, the Fold Structure Province and the Fault Structure Province meet at the place, demonstrating the basic elements of the Tasmanian landscape. There is a high degree of diversity of rock types and formations representative of these major divisions.
  • The bedrock geology ranges from Jurassic (150 my BP) dolerite and basalt, Triassic (200 my BP) sandstone, Permian (250 my BP) mudstone, Ordovician (424 - 520 my BP) limestone to pre-Cambrian (600 my BP) dolomite. Structural landforms include a fault-line escarpment, strike ridge and residual basalt ridges and spurs. (Criterion A.3) [Identified in an earlier listing]
  • The Lune River Geological Site is the only known place in Tasmania and one of only three places in Australia where Jurassic basalt occurs. It is also the only known place in Tasmania where fossils are associated with Jurassic basalt. These include an array of plant materials from ferns and primitive coniferous trees. Several specimens of the fossil plant material represents type localities for the description of the various species. (Criteria B.1, C.1) [Identified in an earlier listing]
Diverse depositional glacial features overlay the bedrock. The area around Lune River is one of only two places in Tasmania with evidence of glaciation to present sea level. (Criterion B.1)

The timber industry is a major Tasmanian industry and has been operating since the early nineteenth century. During the 1850s, timber getting was revolutionised with the introduction of the timber tramway that enabled the movement of large and regular volumes of timber from the bush to mills and wharves. This form of transport operated until at least the 1950s.

The Lune River Timber Tramway - Marble Hill Spurline is a good and relatively intact example of a timber tramline associated with this major phase of timber harvesting. It retains some of the most impressive timber tramline in the southern forests. While such tramlines have been numerous and extensive, the Marble Hill Spurline generally appears to be in better condition and display a higher level of integrity than most other surviving tramlines. For example, it includes a timber landing which is one of the better preserved features of its type. (Criteria A4 and D2)

The Lune River Tramway Log Hauler Group is a good and highly intact example of a log hauler site associated with this major phase of timber harvesting. While such log haulers have been numerous, the Lune River Tramway Log Hauler Group generally appears to be in better condition and display a high level of integrity. (Criteria A4 and D2)
The following description is based on Kostoglou 1994:
  • Lune River Timber Tramway - The line seems to have consisted of two principal spurs branching off the main line at a point 2 km west of the river side sawmill.
  • The main line departed the mill and traversed an easy grade over a plain before branching at the two km mark. The line can still be plainly traced to the fork. The nominal grade only required minimal bridgework and the remnant line therefore consists of a sleeper sequence with parallel spar rails laid over the top. The numerous fires through this dry sclerophyll plain have destroyed several sections of the main line.
  • From the junction, the northern spur traverses north west for a km before turning due west and following the south bank of Lune River for another 2 km to its suspected terminus. A lesser spurline heads westward from the main line 1 km south of the junction.
  • The southern spurlines are the longer spurline sequence, measuring some 11 km in total. From the junction this line proceeds south for three km before branching into four tertiary spurlines. These tertiary spurs travel to Lune Sugarloaf, Marble Hill, Mystery Creek and Tom's Bottom.

Maatsuyker Island is the second largest (after De Witt) of six islands in the Maatsuyker group.
  • The island is roughly triangular in shape and covers about 190 hectares, its highest point being approximately 280 metres above sea level. The island lies ten kilometres from the Tasmanian mainland.
  • Maatsuyker Island is part of the Western Tasmania Wilderness National Parks World Heritage Area, and is scenically spectacular, with jagged cliffs rising precipitously from the sea and jumbled rocks and boulders on the shoreline.
  • Several sea caves occur on the coast of the island. The smaller Walker Island lies to the north of Maatsuyker Island, and The Needles, a chain of pyramidal rocks 100 metres in height, lie to the south.
  • The latter are devoid of vegetation except a few plants of Bower Spinach (TETRAGONIA IMPLEXICOMA) and Pigface (CARPOBROTUS ROSSII) near their summits.
  • Walker Island is small (11 hectares) and steep-sided with severely stunted, wind-pruned vegetation. It provides breeding habitat for many species of birds.

De Witt Island, also known as Big Witch, is an island located close to the south-western coast of Tasmania, Australia.

De Witt Island is important for natural landscapes and for its undisturbed catchments. It is a relatively undisturbed area with topographic and catchment integrity where natural processes remain essentially unmodified and unimpeded by human intervention (Criterion A.2).

Dwelling in the underground world of caves is an astonishing array of fascinating creatures. Tasmania has one of the richest known cave faunas in temperate Australia, including spiders, crickets, beetles, slaters, snails, harvestmen, millipedes, pseudoscorpions and many other invertebrates.

Cave ecosystems directly depend upon the surrounding surface environment. This means it is essential that we maintain the natural soil, vegetation, and water quality around caves. The special nature of karst makes it particularly vulnerable to degradation and such areas should be treated with special care.

SPIDER DEN is a significant site in terms of the evolution of invertebrate fauna, with important implications for evolutionary biology and the relationships of species within their particular zoological classifications.
  • It is suggested that such species may have important implications for determining the effects and evolution of climate change (Hamilton- Smith, 1970; Holsinger, 1988). There are several new species including cave adapted Invertebrates: isopods, millipedes, spiders and a troglobitic harvestman (Clarke, 1997a).
  • Caves such as SPIDER DEN act as a refugia for invertebrate species In both evolutionary and bio-geographic distributional terms. Some cave invertebrate species such as Hickmanoxyomma cavaticum (Variety 3): [a species for which Spider Den is the type locality] have a disjunct (vicariant) distribution and/ or are distributional relicts which have evolved as reproductively isolated species in SPIDER DEN with no present surface-dwelling ancestor species (Clarke, 1997a; Hunt, 1990).
The section of the surrounding North Lune limestone karst in the broader nominated area has been glaciated and this glacio-karst area has evolved with significant natural features. These important features along with the subterranean drainage contribute to the overall integrity of the SPIDER DEN site and the inter-connected karst bio-space which contains the invertebrate cave fauna (Clarke, 1997b) and assist in the maintenance of the cave refugia for gene pool diversity and speciation.
Tasmanian cave spider
This endemic spider is the largest in Tasmania. A troglophile (an animal that can and does live in caves, but is capable of surviving outside), it is common in the entrance, twilight and transition zones of caves.
  • It also dwells in suitably dark, sheltered surface habitats such as in hollow logs or underneath buildings. It spins a large horizontal sheet web, around 1m across.
  • The spider’s main prey is cave crickets. Tasmanian cave spiders are believed to live for many years.
  • Mating involves a prolonged courtship, which begins with the male signalling his approach to the female by gently plucking the silk strands of her web. He carefully approaches the female whilst gently tapping her with his front legs. This signal seems to deter the female from attacking and eventually the two may join together.

(including abandoned sections and operating sections)
The Ida Bay Railway is the last original bush tram in Australia with the outer terminus being the southernmost railway station in the country. The quarry (and thus the railway) is of heritage significance as a rare and outstanding example of of the Decauville method of removing quarried stone from the work face by means of portable narrow gauge track sections.

Description: The site includes approximately six kilometres of operational railway track from the Ida Bay Works to Elliot Beach and all rolling stock associated with the railway and its former operations including the Malcolm Moore Rail Tractors, Hunslet B-N 1844 steam locomotive of 1936, rail motor, bogie flat wagons and associated buildings.
History:
The Tramway was opened in 1919 to facilitate the transportation of Limestone from the quarry west of Lune River to a jetty at Ida Bay.[1]During 1975, freight operations ceased. The Tramway was purchased by the Tasmanian Government in 1977 and leased to private operators for the purpose of a tourist attraction.[1] Various lease holders ran the railway for years struggling to make a profit, but in 2004 the Line re-opened and has been running successfully for the last several years.

The two-hour round trip runs from the Lune River station through buttongrass bushland to the banks of Ida Bay and then onto the old limestone pier at Deep Hole, for a beachside stop before returning to the station.
Marked bushwalking tracks lead to Southport Lagoon. Barbecu facilities, toilets, picnic lunches, group bookings, twilight tours and overnight camping spots are also available.

  • Originally Registered by the Tasmanian National Trust
  • Located on the eastern outskirts of the Southwest National Park, near the Ida Bay Railway, the Mystery Creek Caves track is a unique walking experience combining railroad and mining history with accessible and stimulating caving experiences.
  • Originally constructed as a tramway to facilitate a limestone quarry, the trail is mostly flat and easily managed by walkers of all levels.
  • The trail begins at the information shelter adjacent to the carpark and follows the muddy tramway track through spectacular dense forest for the first 1km. Keep an eye out of the many mining and rail relics that litter the edges of the trail as you meander your way through the forest.
    The quarry is soon reached and the trail continues along the lefthand side of the quarry face.
