The self-guided tour app of the Huon Valley was developed for Huon Valley Roamers Landcare and Landcare Tasmania and was launched in conjunction with the 2015 Landcare Conference.
The app lists a number of sites in the Huon Valley region in the categories of Landcare, Wildcare, Angling and Nature Walks. Over 60 sites are listed, and a user can pick and choose from the sites to create their own custom trail. Each site has a detailed description, photos, a map and navigation instructions. You can also launch GPS navigation from within the app.
There is a strong focus on Landcare sites where volunteers can spend time caring for a high-value environmental site.
The self-guided tour is a web app, which allows it to be opened on all types of mobile devices as well as PCs and Macs. The web app is downloaded to the users device once accessed, which allows it to be accessed offline in the future.
