About Cygnet ( we're 2 minutes out of Cygnet centre )
Cygnet is a small town of approximately 1000 people, situated in the Huon Valley 45 minutes southwest of Hobart and 12 minutes out of Huonville. Cygnet was originally named in 1793 by French navigator Admiral Bruny D'Entrecasteaux during a voyage in search of a missing explorer. Because of the number of black swans in the bay, he used his own language to name the inlet Port de Cygne Noir (Black Swan Port) which was later changed to Cygnet.
The town is the centre of a fruit growing district now favoured by retirees and artists, due largely to the beautiful scenery in the area. Some local attractions include cherry orchards, fossicking, craft shops which display some of Tasmania's finest work, the Hartzview Vineyard and the Talune Wildlife Park which features a range of native animals, including the Tasmanian devil and koalas. It is fascinating bush-walking territory. Events in Cygnet include the Cygnet Folk Festival and regetta. Small film festivals and art exhibitions are also held in the town.
