Huon Road, formerly The Huon Highway, runs through South Hobart and was the major road during the latter half of the 20 th century. Autumn time during the 1950s would see apple trucks continually travelling along this road carting apples to Europe, thus helping Tasmania to earn its title of ‘The Apple Isle’.
