“Must Do Experiences”
It’s no secret that Tasmania is a food lover’s heaven. Take a look at some of our top mini-adventures that we think you ought to consider when ticking the ‘Tassie foodie experience’ box.
“Paddock to Plate Tasmanian style at Fat Pig Farm & Agrarian Kitchen”
Do you really want to experience the low food mile lifestyle that Tasmania is famous for? Then you need to check out Gourmet Farmer Mathew Evan’s, Fat Pig Farm as well as the Agrarian Kitchen. Both offering authentic and uniquely Tasmanian paddock to plate experiences that are sure to be the talk of the group.
Go to the Fat Pig Farm for a perfect leisurely afternoon, while sitting at a long table in their country farm kitchen. They will serve you multiple dishes straight from their own gardens and paddock. Be prepared for a long lazy afternoon, giving your delegates the chance to feast, unwind and get to know each other more.
If you’re wanting to get more of a hands-on experience then look no further than the Agrarian Kitchen Cooking School & Farm. The day begins with gumboots and foraging in their garden for the ripest fruit and vegetables. Once the collection of all the delicious produce is done, you continue to their kitchen for preparation and cooking. Then it’s feast time!

“Enjoy a cruisy time and eat your way around Bruny Island”
Off the south East Coast of Tasmania, you will find Bruny Island.
You’ve heard of progressive dinner… well, this is a progressive day of feasting. With freshly picked berries, handmade chocolate and fudge, some of the best cheeses our island state has to offer and oysters freshly shucked as you watch, how can you go wrong?
Of course, you’ll need something to wash down all that food. That’s where Bruny Island Premium wines and the Bruny Island House of Whiskey comes in, to help round off your day of indulgence.
