Welcome to our simple English blog about the Huon Valley. We write this blog for backpackers on a working holiday and for other travellers like you.
Where to church
Hello traveller! There are many lovely churches across the Huon Valley, in far south Tasmania. Today I want to share with you about three churches near Huonville which welcome travellers like you.
If you are a backpacker on a working-holiday visa, any one of these traveller-friendly churches may be good for you. I will list them in alphabetical order.
C3 is a Charismatic church. They are informal and focus on worship. They sing modern songs from places like Hillsong. And they meet at 2:30pm, Sundays at 8 Heron Street (a large scout hall in the middle of Huonville).
