Cut off from the Australian continent over 10,000 years ago, the island of Tasmania has a unique ecosystem that benefits from its proximity to Antarctica.
It takes the ‘clean, green’ benefits for which Australian produce is known to a whole new level of purity.
Unlike the mainland, the island’ enjoys a cool climate, plentiful rainfall and rich, fertile soils, in addition to the pristine waters direct from Antarctica..
The island is also know for its strong convict heritage. It was Australia’s second penal colony after Sydney, receiving over 70,000 men, women and children as English convicts until the mid-1800’s.
This remarkable combination of natural and human history has today produced some of the most amazing alternative, break-the-rules kind of foods.
The antidote to a mass-produced modern world, Tasmania celebrates terroir, with wineries and small-scale growers, brewers and artisan makers.
