Ten Tastes of Tasmania!
While sight-seeing the gorgeous view Tasmania has to offer, here are our top 10 places you must dine at!
1. Fish and chips
Fish Frenzy is famous for its freshest seafood, fish 'n' chips & hot chowder on Hobart's historic waterfront ,overlooking the docks and working port. This is what you would need after a long flight to Hobart.
One of their standout would be the chowder with hot smoked salmon pieces in it, especially on cooler Hobart days.
Blue eye trevalla is one of the recommended dishes to try too.
2. Whiskey (Sullivans Cove)
Are you a single malts fan? Then do not miss the opportunity to visit this World Famous Distillery. Their whiskey has been awarded the best whiskey in 2012. Sullivans Cove single malt is hand made using traditional methods and 100% Tasmanian ingredients.
For $30 per individual you can sample their three styles plus the base uncasked liquor. Due to the limited number of bottles you will rarely find these in a bottle shop. What are you waiting for?
3. Lavender Infused food items
Bridestowe Lavender Estate has the largest singular plantation of lavender in the southern hemisphere, if not the world. They have taken advantage of this by growing not just lavender but also potatoes, onions, carrots and rows of vineyard grapes, so there's a fantastic food bowl right here on their home ground!
The lavender scones are divine. The hint of lavender being just right, not too strong, and the cream and rhubarb lavender jelly with the scones are something to die for. Add on the lavender tea, you will probably think it's magic. They also have pure lavender, lavender chocolate and lavender blueberry ice creams to add on to your taste buds.
4. James Boags beer
Over in Tassie you can have the opportunity to discover what goes into producing Australia’s premium beer. Step inside the historic brewery for a fully guided tour, including a fascinating insight into James Boag’s history. Enthusiasts will appreciate a look at various stages of the brewing process that results in a range of award-winning beers.

5. Leatherwood honey
When it comes to choosing the best honey, we highly recommend the Tasmanian leatherwood honey. Leatherwood honey exudes a natural fragrance and it has that hint of a woody flavour to its taste. It's said to be one of the best honey tasted that's so good to be consumed on its own. You can also add it to your tea as it contains an extremely high amount of antioxidants. Truly an enjoyable way to boost your immunity system on a daily basis. This is also a natural goodness for your skin. One of the easiest way to keep a youthful look is just by applying it directly to your skin. Such a natural goodness!
6. Scallop pie at the Salamanca market
The Salamanca Saturday Market is a great market and a MUST if in Hobart on a Saturday. A must try is the famous Scallop Pie. It's less or not curried as compared to the other scallop pies commonly found in Tasmania and it's filled with scallops! YUM!
7. Cheese haven
The Bruny Island Cheese Company is a definite must see and visit. The service staff are very informative and patrons would have a great variety of different types of cheese. Patrons are also served the cheese slices with freshly sliced warm baguette. A hungry traveller can easily be satisfied.
8. Boysenberry ice cream, the pie, and the pancake
Kates Berry Farm has a cafe that offers stunning views of Kate's working berry farm and the east coast vistas. She also has gluten-free options made in her own kitchen. The jams are available for tasting, before you are in a dilemma about which one you are going to bring home.
