Hi and welcome,
I am in Australia and love Huon pine, it has a beautiful colour, tight grain and it smells absolutely great. However, making furniture from huon pine is a bit above my budget, it is quite expensive. I'd definitely use an oil finish (Danish oil I'd say in order to have oil plus wax) on it to keep it as natural as possible as the timber is stunning enough in its own right. Wish I lived in Tassie to lay my hand on some Huon at an affordable price ! Organoil that I get from Carbatec would aslo give it a nice warm feel I'd say.
