There is always something spectacular to be found hiding away in beautiful Tasmania. The Bridestowe Estate Lavender Farm is the perfect example of this and it's ready to enchant and delight you.
Who knew that beautiful, vast fields of lavender could be awaiting you in Australia's southernmost state?
If you head to the lavender farm during summer you're sure to be greeted by the most spectacular sight – a sea of soft purple lavender stalks as far as the eye can see. However, even in the winter the area is still magnificent, with the green garden space still a spectacular view.
Self-guided tours are available all year round, with guided tours available by appointment. There is also an audio visual presentation that provides guests with an insight into the history of the estate, as well as the harvesting and distillation process. Self-guided tour information is available in Chinese, Indonesian and Japanese.
Along with the audio visual presentation, the Visitor Centre showcases a range of lavender products, including oil and dried flowers, as well as locally made crafts.
There's also a cafe where you can have a rest and grab a coffee or tea – and even have a taste of flower honey, jams, relish, biscuits and other treats.
In the winter months, Bridestowe Estate is open from 10:00 until 16:00 from Monday to Friday, and in the weekends by appointment.
This could be the perfect location to spend a special occasion with a loved one or your family – but it is also a great place for the kids to roam around and explore. Go on, make the most of this natural beauty.
