Food and wine

Clean air, pure water, rich nourishing soil and a mild climate are the perfect ingredients for Tasmania’s award-winning fine food and wine.

Tasmania’s produce is celebrated across the globe. Each year the state hosts spectacular food and wine events like Hobart’s Taste Festival and Launceston’s Festivale.

Incorporating fine food and wine into your event is easy. Cherries, apples, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, gooseberries...

On any given day Tasmanian Atlantic salmon, blue eye trevalla, scallops, abalone and Tasmanian oysters are delighting discerning taste buds in fine dining restaurants far and wide.

Tasmanian wines are being celebrated at wine shows and cellared by connoisseurs. Tasmanian beer makers are widely regarded as the authority on all that is cold and gold. Our peat and perfect water make the finest whisky.

And let’s not forget the other Tasmanian liquid gold – honey. Cheese-makers are pushing boundaries and achieving brilliance in every corner of the state. Tasmanian beef, lamb and game are exported daily. Nuts, chocolate, fudge, preserves, truffles...

From affordable quality to effusive opulence, the standard of food in Tasmania is superb.

From innovative chefs ready to plate a dinner for 1 000 on a mountain top to exquisite dining experiences on the waterfront... from paddock to plate and farm door to the cellar door, there is a food and wine experience in Tasmania to engage the toughest critic.

With such an abundance of options at your fingertips Tasmania is truly a place to indulge.
