Tastes of Tasmania

Culinary Delights

The range of Tasmania’s regional fare is extensive – wasabi, gourmet sauces, handmade chocolates and fudge, sauces, jams, condiments, honeys, herbs, seafood, wines, cheeses, liqueurs, ciders, beers and whiskies. You can meet the producers and sample their wares at Salamanca Market in Hobart any Saturday, visit one of the specialist delicatessens across Tasmania or take a drive out to a farm or factory where they are produced

Beverages

Tasmania’s naturally elegant wines are made from grapes grown in climates similar to much-celebrated European wine regions – with mild summers and long autumn days that slowly ripen the grapes, providing elegance and intensity of flavour. Tasmania’s boutique yet burgeoning wine industry boasts seven distinct wine growing regions. All are within easy reach of major centres or are located en route to some of Tasmania’s iconic attractions.

Farm Gate

The bountiful supplies of Tasmanian fruit are renowned for their delicious flavour, the island’s temperate maritime climate provides a diversity of produce to be harvested from early summer to late autumn. Locals and visitors alike can source the freshest fine produce direct from the grower, from bags of apples to cherries, apricots, berries, seasonal stonefruit, cheeses, olives, meats, wines, jams, pickles and liqueurs. Increasingly too, Farmer’s Markets conveniently held in towns and cities are becoming the focus of many itineraries.
If you are touring around Tasmania, you have the privilege of obtaining produce direct from its source. You can pick your own fresh Tasmanian berries, head up the driveway of a rural property with shed door sales and sample quality produce and flavours that you rarely taste in their just-harvested state.
