Join us for a tour of the “Apple Isle” in the autumn when the days are still warm and the trees are turning. Meet inspiring families pushing the boundaries in a diverse range of innovative agricultural and horticultural enterprises. Enjoy sampling fresh regional produce from the land and from the sea and visit some of the vineyards and distilleries that define the entrepreneurial spirit of Tasmania. In the north, see Australasia’s largest dairy operation. Down south, wander among the stalls of the makers, growers and producers at the popular Salamanca Market, before experiencing Tasmania’s rich convict heritage at Port Arthur.
