Visitors to Tasmania looking for a unique experience this summer would do well to consider the dramatic beauty of Bridestowe Lavender Estate at Nabowla, which is widely regarded as one of the state's most spectacular destinations.
During January the 265 acre site is in full bloom, offering you unrivalled views of vast lavender farms in all their glory.
There is no better time of year to witness this remarkable gift of nature and Bridestowe is truly the perfect place to appreciate these wonderful flowers.
Recognised for its immaculately-manicured fields, picturesque gardens and first-class tourist facilities, the farm attracts visitors throughout the year but in summer its popularity is immense.
As you stroll among the delightful fields it is impossible not to become transfixed by the amazing scenery that surrounds you.
You can dine on lavender-inspired cuisine in the lovely cafe or picnic under the old oak trees, as well as learn more about the special flower from the knowledgeable staff.
It is also possible to pick up some fabulous locally-made arts and crafts to take home.
Adult tickets for this majestic experience are just $7, while children under 16 can enter for free.
The estate is currently open daily from 09:00 am to 9:00 pm before closing time goes back to 5:00 pm in February.
