Drives through rolling, craggy countryside are so scenic you might not want them to end.
Until you get hungry that is. It’s a tour worth falling for.
Wide open spaces, high rainfall and lush green valleys. From Hobart on the southern tip, to Launceston in the north, Tasmania boasts the cleanest air and freshest water in the world.
Spring brings new life for animals and vegetation; artichokes, garlic scapes and asparagus abound. The grass is lush and green, days are longer and we’ll take you on travels over land and water. If you’re thinking of extending your visit around the food tour, this is a perfect time of year to continue unearthing more of what Tassie has to offer.
Dining in Tasmania is diverse. From rustic country cafes and open-air farm BBQ’s to smart city venues, the produce is invariably locally sourced and treated with respect; we’ll experience the best on offer. Fresh produce gathered, the courtyard fire glowing and sun setting, a dinner to remember will be created alongside one of Tassies favourite farmers at a special cooking class. This is what food memories are made of.
Scattered around this island state, food producers operate mainly as cottage industries rather than big corporate entities. Differing values and cultures within these businesses mean consumers enjoy cared-for marbled steak from traditional cattle breeds, stone fruits picked from local orchards and plump salty oysters plucked out of clean, ice-cold waters. Sounds divine? Well, it is.
