Foodie Holidays in Tasmania

The majestic beauty of Tasmania offers up a whole selection of activities for any intrepid explorer to enjoy, and foodies will particularly love the unique cuisine on offer, in restaurants in beautiful locations and bustling cities.

Where should I go?

Launceston, the second largest city in Tasmania has a great range of restaurants, including budget eats at Morty’s Food Hall, the stunning Bellini overlooking the waterfront, and upmarket restaurants like Stillwater and Quigley’s.

Similarly, Hobart has an abundance of restaurants, cafes and bistros ranging from cheap and cheerful to luxury dining. The Salamanca Market offers lively street food, while Mures Fish Centre serves Tasmanian specialities like scallop pie and deep sea trevalla.

What should I eat?

As already mentioned, Tasmania really specialises in seafood, with an abundance to choose from and sample. Try some of the tastiest salmon you’ve ever tasted which thrives in the pristine waters of Tasmania, or the unusual abalone shellfish. King Island cheese is also another favourite of Australia, produced here, and it’s also Australia’s main producer of wasabi. Think about it’s humble beginnings when dipping your sashimi in it in a trendy sushi bar in Sydney!

Do I need to plan anything?

You’ll need a visa to enter Australia, which will can be used for three months over the course of a year. The ETA Tourist Visa is usually needed by most people, but if you’re embarking on a tour of the country or going travelling, you’ll need a more specialist visa. Visas4Oz has a whole guide to the type of visa you’ll need here.
