History and attributes

In 1993 the municipalities of Esperance, Huon and Port Cygnet were amalgamated to form the Huon Valley Council.[3] Remote subantarctic Macquarie Island, which is located some 1400 km southeast of Tasmania proper, was part of Esperance until then, and has been administratively part of the Huon Valley since then.


Huon Valley is classified as rural, agricultural and very large (RAV) under the Australian Classification of Local Governments.[4]

The townships in the south east region of Tasmania that experienced the largest growth were Huonville, Franklin (where the population was up by 1,300 people) and Cygnet (up by 440).[5]


The Huon Valley Council is composed of nine Councillors elected using the Hare-Clark system of proportional representation as a single ward. All Councillors are elected for a fixed four-year term of office. The Mayor and Deputy Mayor are each directly elected for a four-year term. The Mayor and Deputy Mayor must also be elected as Councillors to hold office. Elections are normally held in October, with the next election due to be held in October 2022.[6] Neither the Labor Party nor the Liberal Party endorse local government candidates in Tasmania.

In 2016 the entire Huon Valley Council was sacked by the state government after a long period of severe dysfunction.[7][8] and the municipality was controlled by a Commissioner, former Glenorchy mayor and Elwick MLC Adriana Taylor,[9] until new elections were held over a three-week period concluding on 30 October 2018.[10]

As elected in 2018 the Council had 9 members:[10]
