Celebration of fine food, wine, entertainment, arts and crafts from the Huon Valley and Channel region.
This region produces an abundance of apples and although Tasmania is still recognised as the ‘Apple Isle’, cherries, mushrooms, salmon, vineyards, berries and truffles are also farmed in the area and along with much more, promoted at the Festival.
Entertainment is at its very best and each year there is a new programme. And most importantly there will be loads of attractions to keep the children occupied.
This Festival is one of the most popular regional events in Tasmania and draws over 20,000 local, intrastate and interstate visitors through its 2 day programme. This event is run by a voluntary committee with proceeds being injected back into the community via funding of groups who volunteer on the day.
The Huon Valley, D’entrecasteaux Channel and Bruny Island regions of Tasmania are now being recognised as one of Tasmania’s leading tourist destinations. Why not extend your stay? Tell your friends that you have experienced the exhilaration of climbing Hartz Peak or driven to Australia’s southern most point – Cockle Creek.
Tasmania’s renowned Huon Trail winds through this region and as such it has become synonymous with fine food and wines which can be found in the abundant cafes, restaurants, wineries and farms that are scattered amongst the rolling hills and along the stunning Huon River.
Bring along your deckchairs and rugs and take advantage of the sprawling lawns around the ground
And remember it is an outdoor event so slip slop slap.
