Tasmania’s finest produce will be proudly on display in the coming week at the boutique Taste of the Huon. With no shortage of culinary delights, children’s entertainment and local celebrity appearances, the 22nd year of the event is touted to be better than ever.
Located in the idyllic town of Ranelagh, just thirty minutes south of the capital of Hobart, the event marks a celebration of fine food, wine, entertainment, arts and crafts from Tasmania’s charming Huon Valley and channel region. This year’s event will run on the 9th and 10th of March and will feature almost 100 stores providing the best that this coveted area has to offer.
Enjoy majestic vistas as you navigate down one of Tasmania’s most scenic roads. The Huon Valley is bursting with charming countryside, boutique eateries, cheese makers and world-class wineries. No motorhome journey around Australia’s island state is complete without experiencing the sheer beauty of the Huon Valley located just south of Tasmania’s striking capital.
Sample fresh Tasmanian cider at iconic William Smith Cider or try a range of award-winning wine at Home Hill Winery including their award-winning pinot noir. Stop by Cascade and sample a beer or two from Australia’s oldest operating brewery, enjoy a steaming cup of coffee from Coffee for a Cause or savour the flavour of creamy home-made ice cream at Ice Cream of the Valley or Tasmanian Fine Ice-cream.
The event will also feature a range of entertainment including Pepper the Pig and Dora Explorer for the kids, “pot a plant” exhibition courtesy of Mitre 10, ‘The Chef and the Showman’ presented by Paul Foreman and John X and the inaugural Apple Pie Off Competition where Damon Wise from Southern Cross will face off against Dominic Bury from Cascade. With cooking competitions, plenty to do and see for the kids and local music groups, this event will keep the entire family entertained all day long.
Turn this event into a peaceful southern Tasmanian getaway and stay at tranquil Huon Valley Caravan Park. This park is just a hop,skip and a jump from Ranelagh and offers affordable accommodation for caravans, motorhomes and campers.
