Cygnet is a pretty little town south-west of Hobart (map). It’s on a sheltered bay so it’s a yachting town as well as a farming town. It welcomes tourists, of course, and I know it as the home of a very good post-Christmas folk festival (still going ahead this summer although in a much reduced format).
We spent a few hours there, wandering around the town, visiting an exceptional Community Garden and looking at the water birds on Burtons Reserve and the wetlands – including, as my title implies, cygnets swimming with their parents.
