The Great Huon Apple Race: Have you ever raced an apple before? This event, held each year, involves launching a floating apple from the bridge at Hounville and watching it race 300 meters down the picturesque Huon River. It is now part of the Apple and Salmon Race
The owner of the first apple across the line wins. The sale of apples (at $3 each or 4 for $10) is a fund raiser for the Rotary Club of Huon Valley. Huonville is in Tasmania, Australia.
