Australia's island state boasts the perfect conditions for producing top-quality, flavour-filled produce — and an exceptionally talented roll call of passionate people doing spectacular things with it.
There are kitchen gardens and cooking classes, herds of happy dairy cattle and pigs free-ranging in fields. And award-winning sparkling and oceanside distilleries, salty fresh oysters and mushrooms grown in abandoned train tunnels. Taking the helm of these gastronomic pursuits is a passionate community of growers, business owners and bona fide tastemakers, all of them enlivened with a love for the land and quality produce.
Whether you have a deep love for dining out, have an appreciation for paddock-to-plate or you simply enjoy top-quality nosh, a trip to Tasmania needs to be top of your list. Together with Tourism Tasmania, we’ve taken a delicious bite into the state to discover the stories behind the places and people of the Apple Isle. But don’t just take our word for it: jump in the car with two CP writers who road-tripped along stunning stretches of Tassie.
