Tasmania Fruit and Berries
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?
