Fruit and Berries in Tasmania
Tasmania is known internationally as the apple isle because it was, for many years, one of the world's major apple suppliers. Today, Tasmania continues to produce a myriad of apples as well as stone fruit, pears, berries and much, much more.
There are many tourist-friendly farms on the island that allow you to pick your own fruit at reduced rates. What better way to break up the drive than a healthy and rewarding afternoon in an orchard or berry patch? As an extra incentive, Tassie fruits are generally grown with less to no chemical. Why not ask a staff member about it while selecting your home-made ice cream or jam from the shop or farmer's market stall after an afternoon spent picking some of Tasmania's finest offerings?
