Food-lovers planning a trip to Tasmania will find plenty to savour during their trip to the island state.
Tasmania is developing quite a reputation as one of Australia’s top food destinations, with plenty of emphasis placed on organic and locally-grown produce.
During your visit, you might want to sample one of the famous cheeses made on the island – brie and camembert are popular local varieties, although you’ll find plenty to choose from – or try some of the acclaimed wine produced from cool-climate grapes.
In fact, James Halliday’s 2011 Wine Companion ranked Tasmanian wines as some of the highest-quality – and most reasonably priced – beverages to be found in the country, including chardonnays, pinot noirs and rieslings.
If you are planning to travel to Hobart, you’ll find plenty of local fare at the numerous eateries at Salamanca – and you may even wish to browse through the market here for fresh produce. And if you travel further afield, you’ll find you are treated to gastronomic delights right across the state.
From salmon farms at Mole Creek to the Nant Whisky Distillery at Bothwell – only a short drive from Hobart – you’ll be able to enjoy a delicious taste of Tasmania wherever you choose to visit.
