What to eat

“Culinary life embraces a journey that begins not in the kitchen, nor the market, or even at the farmers’ gate but extends from the soil and the sea itself’.

Bernard Lloyd, 2003.

Tasmania has a reputation for fantastic food. Its temperate climate, volcanic soils, clean environment and generous rainfall help create lush pastures, where temperate climate fruit and perfect vegetables are grown, where some of the world’s best cheese is made from fresh milk and where sparkling Tasmanian water is transformed into single malt whisky.

In Burnie you can taste fresh produce at the Farmers’ Market and at the farm gate. You can buy award winning cheese at the factory outlet and taste whisky at the cellar door. There are restaurants to linger in and well stocked delis to tempt you with gourmet treats.
