One of the hardest pieces I’ve had to write. Because my puny words just can’t do this incredible place justice. You will have to see it for yourself.
Freshfield Grove olive oil from Tasmania delivers a burst of peppery sunshine on the tongue that reminds you just how good this is.
A tiny stuffed fox praying to be bought? A glass case of ivory beside it? An emporium as big as the MCG? Latrobe may be tiny, but the delights are big.
Hobart’s near city wine trail is hard to beat for variety, passionate producers, glorious wine and food. How lucky, Hobart?
Frogmore Creek still delivers art on a plate under the guidance of Ruben Koopman. And what art it is.
