Along the way make sure you take the time to get to know the friendly locals, explore the nooks and crannies and expect the unexpected around every bend – because it’s these behind the scenery experiences that will make your trip extra special so you can really appreciate all Tasmania has to offer.
Tassie’s lure extends from travellers to connoisseur’s the world over, seduced by the cool climate and rich soils that allow small-scale producers to flourish, growing and harvesting unique local specialties like wild abalone, truffles, leatherwood honey, saffron, wild wasabi and wagyu beef. There are foraging tours, cooking schools, roadside stalls, innovative eateries, farmers’ markets, gourmet walking tours and providores scattered all across the island. Set against eye-popping iconic scenery that will leave you feeling energized, but also prepare to see how the influence of the island’s pristine environment has led to superb produce and cuisine, an appreciation and genuine concern for nature and a way of life that guards the very things that make it so special.
