Taste your way around Tasmania expedition style
Experience one of the most beautiful parts of the world like never before.
Tasmania has long been recognised for its wild and untamed natural beauty, but in recent years, it’s also become an international culinary destination. Foodies not only from the mainland, but from all corners of the globe are flocking to the island state in search of all things gourmet.
With this in mind, Coral Expeditions is once again running its popular seven-night Tasmanian Expedition, which aims to give guests a truly deliciously immersive experience in and around the stunning island.
The tour will allow travellers to experience a whole range of the island’s unique microclimates, including the dry East Coast – which is famous for its Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc – and then back up again to the island’s North, which experiences heavy rainfall and is known for growing some of the world’s best beef.
“We extensively travelled Tasmania experiencing the island’s many culinary spoils before handpicking the very best ones for our Tasmanian itinerary,” says Tamara Sweeting, Coral Expedition’s Hospitality Operations Manager.

“Not only did we see what the local suppliers could offer but ultimately what Tasmania had to offer.
“The goal for the Tasmanian Expedition was to develop local and regional food systems with a governing approach, building one that holds economic and environmental sustainability. The itinerary allows guests to visit these local communities or towns and try their produce firsthand.”
Some of the other producers visited along the way include Grandvewe Cheeses, the only organic sheep cheesery in Tasmania and is a family run business. They also own Hartshorn Distillery, the only sheep whey distillery in the world.
Then there’s Joanna’s Jams. A small family owned and operated business priding itself on sourcing quality fruits direct from small growers throughout the state.

Guests can also look forward to traditionally hand-smoked salmon by Woodbridge Smokehouse and pristine Bruny Island oysters from Get Shucked, a locally owned and operated oyster farm and bar.
Coral Expeditions runs a seven-night Pristine Tasmania expedition cruise from Hobart annually throughout January to March. Prices start at $4,990 per person twin share.
