This lovely tour provides a real mixture of history, wonderful scenery and a bit of food production.
Our first stop is at the Signal Station at Mt Nelson; wonderful views and an interesting display of how ships were signaled.
Depending on time we may have a quick stop at the Margate Train with its quirky shops in the old rail carriages.
Just down the road is the Channel Heritage Museum, what a great place this is, wonderful displays depicting life in the area from the local indigenous people right through to the present day.
We then travel down through the wonderful Channel area with its special scenery to arrive in the pretty village of Kettering to visit with John at Nutpatch. What a treat this stop is, John is a true Chocolatier and loves to share his knowledge and passion, the only problem with this stop is trying to decide which ones to take home!
Not too far down the road is Grandvewe Cheese, Tasmania’s only sheep’s cheesery. Here you will receive a warm welcome from Di and her family who will explain all about making the cheese and caring for the “girls” to ensure they are healthy and happy (very spoilt sheep here!). And of course there is some wonderful cheese to sample.
Travelling over the hills, taking in spectacular scenery we arrive at the lovely village of Cygnet which is our lunch stop.
Our route to our next stop takes us along the side of the Huon River, again beautiful scenery, to our last stop is a visit the amazing Apple Shed and you may to try some wonderful Willie Smith Organic Cider. The Apple Shed is full of the apple growing industry heritage, from machines to labels, many things to explore here. The cost per person includes samples, entry fees, morning tea but lunch
