Dairy Destination Experiences

Bruny Island Cheese

For an experience that ticks all the boxes, Bruny Island Cheese is the place to be. Home to cheesemakers, farmers, bakers and brewers, this location offers the finest cheese, beer and breads at their busy Cellar Door.

The team are passionate, skilled artisans who produce high quality cheese and beer with a strong connection to the place they are made - on their very own dairy farm, Glen Huon Dairy Co. in Tasmania.

Only 15 minutes drive from the Bruny Island ferry terminal, visitors are given the chance to sit under the eucalypts and enjoy a cheese platter, cold beer, coffee or cake and stay on for a long, lazy lunch with the locals.

If that isn’t tempting enough, you can also take a loaf of their wood-fired sourdough bread for the road.

For more information, please see Bruny Island Cheese.

Salamanca Markets

One of Tasmania’s most visited tourist attractions, Salamanca Markets, is a must-do while in the Hobart area on a Saturday.

Open from 8.30am to 3.00pm the award-winning outdoor markets offer up to 300 stalls with Tasmania’s biggest selection of locally made produce. A variety of hand-worked glass, Tasmanian timbers, stylish clothing, bespoke jewellery, artworks, ceramics and most importantly the finest handcrafted local cheeses, breads, wines and spirits are available for purchase.

Make sure you come hungry as there are plenty of delicious breakfast and lunch options to enjoy!

For more information, please see Salamanca Market.

The Wicked Cheese Co

Boutique cheese maker, Wicked Cheese, has emerged, in a few short years, to become one of the most impressive, high quality, hand-made cheese producers in Australia.

Based in the Richmond area, The Wicked Cheese café serves traditional cheese platters as well as a range of small meals and tasty desserts. A new offering is the handmade Wicked Gelato that is made by the cheese makers in the factory to be served as fresh as possible to café customers.

Surrounded by lawns and child safe areas for you and your family to enjoy, the Wicked Cheese Co is a destination to spend several hours.

For more information, please see Wicked Cheese.

Coal River Farm

Coal River Farm is Tasmania’s hub for cheese, chocolate and berry picking. Either taste-test and watch the handmade batches of cheese and chocolate being made for yourself or take a walk through the orchard, picking seasonal fruits while overlooking the Valley – it is a win-win.

A trip to Coal River Farm would not be complete without a visit to their farm restaurant where hungry visitors have the chance to tuck into modern Australian cuisine curated with the finest locally grown and sourced produce. In true Tasmania style, the menu changes with the seasons.

For more information, please see Coal River Farm.
