With a population of just under half a million, Tasmanians are renowned for their friendliness. Come and meet the farmers who grow our produce, have a yarn and sample their wares. Chat with berry farmers, boutique cheese producers, beekeepers selling their honeys, stay overnight on a farm such as Curringa Farm and Brickendon Farm and watch the farmers at work. Or have a cooking lesson at the Agrarian Kitchen and see how fresh produce is turned into a gourmet delights.
Tasmania’s clean waters fresh from the Southern Ocean are ideal growing conditions for seafood such as oysters, scallops, abalone, crayfish and fin fish. Our Atlantic salmon, abalone, scallops, octopus and rock lobster are served in the best eateries around the world. Cast a line for a plump trout, shuck oysters fresh from the sea and make sure you have some packed to take back home.
Look out for chocolate truffles, Tasmanian specialty timbers such as Huon Pine, tasty leatherwood honey, hand-knitted woollen wear, art & craft, fine cheeses, superb wines, antiques and much more. Tasmanian wool is rated as amongst the finest in the world. Our berries, apples and stone fruits are juicy and still full of flavour; and our chocolates and beers world-winners. But don’t miss the famous Salamanca Market in Hobart on Saturdays.
