 Derwent Valley and Surrounds

Come and experience another part of the real Tasmania.

A pristine and beautiful part of the world not well- known, with mountain fresh water passing fertile river flats to create world leading produce - centuries ago, and now...

  • Experience the history of where Australia's hop-growing and beer began – in a remarkably well-preserved colonial farm not open to the public.

  • Learn about Hops and Hopbines (yes that 'b for bine' not 'v for vine'). See some of the largest and most historic hop-fields/buildings in the world. As well as some of the most technologically advanced.

  • Taste those special hops in craft beers with flavour matched food.

  • Travel through beautiful scenery amidst rivers ringed by wild mountains.

  • Enjoy lunch - baking your own bread using preindustrial flour in a convict-built bakery on an Estate that has been a leader in innovation for centuries.

  • Sample award-winning whiskeys, made by a leading craft distiller using barley straight from the paddock

  • Time-out then for a little fish-feeding at some historic ponds. Hear the tales about the origin of all Trout fishing in Australasia. It's quite a story..

What an extraordinary way to spend our Monday! Thank you Kim. We have learned much, eaten well... and the drink! Well we have been totally spoiled. A thoroughly professional, relaxed, interesting experience we will remember always.

The Coastal Channel

Leave the crowds behind and journey along this wonderful coastline, taking in views down into hidden coves and sheltered waters. With a backdrop of rich farming land amongst hills and forests and a picturesque village. (It’s not surprising it caught the attention of the French on their fossicking around here in the 1800's).

  • Taste some of the most mouth-watering, silky textured smoked Ocean Trout and Atlantic Salmon in the world. It’s awards speak volumes.

  • Listen to the 'smoke-master' as he describes his special approach, using his organic apple wood, and local Tassie timbers.

  • Walk through his hill-side 25 acre organic apple orchard picking and biting into their freshness.

  • Learn how to carve your own smoked salmon – preferably with wine and audience to hand.  There’s an art involved, with a good knife needed too – far more fun than the Sunday roast ever was….

  • Drink internationally renowned ciders and perries - some made from rare heritage varieties grown in the orchard.

  • In season, bite into crisp cherries - several different varieties at once - near trees owned by a family whose generations have tended these lovely fruits.

  • And then it is time for some sheeps' cheese - delicious and very good for you.

Thank you for a terrific day, your knowledge of the history and the industry within the region is wonderful. It was wonderful seeing an area I thought I knew quite well in a different and educational and enjoyable light.

Tasman Peninsular – Port Arthur

Come South along the Tasman Peninsula, renowned for its World Heritage listed convict history.  There is much more you could include in your day too.  You decide.  Lose yourself in the changing blue crystal clear water as we pass sandy bays, and towering sea-cliffs.  Feed native animals, and sense the wilderness. Visit a sustainable lavender farm or make gin to your own recipe at Bespoke's exclusive Gin Workshop. 

  • Step back in time with a private tour of the Port Arthur Historic Site, or perhaps at a privately owned colonial probation station (small scale prison - somehow very personal in feel)

  • View dramatic coastal scenery from ancient cliff-tops.

  • Hand-feed kangaroos, and see Tasmanian devils close-up in a bushland setting.

  • Learn about "green" lavender, amidst the fields - including paper made from lavender stalks.

  • Become your own gin distiller at one of Gourmet Traveller’s favourite gin distilleries. Join our exclusive, hands-on 4 hour workshop to discover the skill of gin making using your own recipe and still! Workshop includes a flavour-matched lunch and 500ml, of your own fine spirit, personally labelled to take home.
