The Purpose

The purpose of the website is to:

  1. Promote our town and region to visitors to entice them to visit, and

  2. To encourage local residents to spend locally when they see the wide range of options available to them in their own region.

Who should get involved?

We envision that every business and organisation in the greater Geeveston area, from Castle Forbes Bay to Surges Bay will benefit from listing on

  • Full-time businesses

  • Part-time businesses

  • Artisan businesses

  • Work-from-home or on-demand businesses

  • Volunteer organisations

  • Recreation organisations

  • Clubs

  • Interest groups

If you would benefit from increased awareness of what you offer, then please consider listing in our town's


In fact, if you don't have already have a website or online presence, then your own page on may be all you need. It's a very low cost way to establish your presence online.

Targeting Local Residents

Many new residents are coming into our region and they have a challenging time discovering everything that is available in the community. Let's face it, there are many 'best-kept secrets' in our region.

By providing a directory we can easily show them what is right here. This encourages them to shop locally and get involved in local activities.

Targeting Visitors

Many visitors love Geeveston ... once they get here. This website supports the word-of-mouth promotion that travellers often share with each other.

While many visitors can easily discover what is on the main street of Geeveston, this website can help them discover highlights that are a bit out of the way.

Our intention with this website is to maximise the time and money that visitors spend in Geeveston, and to encourage them to get the most out of what we offer. We expect this will flow on to return visits and also for them to tell other visitors to make sure to visit us.

The Big Picture

As more and more people go online to search for information about where to visit and where to spend money, it's necessary to move online if you want people to become aware of you.

We expect that in due course, each township in the Huon Valley will eventually have it's own website featuring its attractions, services & amenities.

We also envision that all these local websites will link to each other, and that they will be linked in an umbrella website of the Huon Valley.

This is a citizen's initiative, kicked off by the Franklin Progress Association with their FranklinTasmania website. Geeveston is the second town to get on board, and we're certain that other towns will follow soon.

The Huon Valley Council is aware of this project, and we are in ongoing discussions about how these township websites will eventually integrate with their own tourism initiatives. 

We also link to regional tourism websites such as:

  • Pristine South

  • Southern Trove

  • Discover Tasmania

  • Hobart and Beyond

The Geeveston Progress Association plans to take out advertising in various regional tourist magazines in order to encourage readers to visit our website to learn more about our town and all that it offers.
