Visiting vineyards in Southern Tasmania
Arguably Australia's most distinctive city, Tasmania's capital Hobart, combines heritage charm and cultural diversity in a setting of exceptional beauty. It is a city of fishing boats, fish punts at the docks and coffee under the sun-umbrellas where the famous Salamanca Market is held every Saturday. Visitors to Hobart can take a harbour cruise past square-rigged yachts, or drive to the summit of Mt Wellington for a bird's eye view of the intricate pattern of islands and estuaries that reach out to the sea beyond.
The wine regions surrounding Hobart and further up the East Coast are rich with a variety of landscapes and experiences ranging from architecturally designed, ultra-modern restaurants to quaint heritage-listed cottages. We extend a very warm welcome to you to come and visit our cellar doors and try our ultra premium Tasmanian cool climate wines and enjoy the Tasmanian ambience while you taste.
Stop to taste award-winning cool-climate wines en route to the colonial village of Richmond in the Coal River Valley, on your way to sampling some of the Huon and Channel regions' mouth-watering fresh produce or on your way to catching a trout in the Derwent Valley. There are more cellar doors to visit and sample wine when heading further out to the spectacular white beaches of the East Coast and Freycinet National Park or South East to the famous site of Port Arthur.
