Nestled at the feet of the beautiful Mount Koonya, this little hamlet was historically part of the Port Arthur colony and today his home to a vibrant community of writers, artists, farmers and retirees. At the heart of Koonya is the Koonya Hall, a historic building that is impeccably preserved and plays host to numerous live music, food and art events. The Koonya Hall is also home to the world famous Koonya Garlic festival, a fantastic event that takes place each year towards the end of February.
