DISTANCES: Launceston 33Km

Just 33 km out of Launceston is the rural village of Hillwood, home of some of Tasmania’s finest produce. Many of this picturesque hamlet’s orchards and farms are open daily for inspection and tastings, so take the time to sample some of the local produce. 

Enjoy the luscious berries at the Strawberry Farm and be reminded of the real taste of apples and pears at the Miller’s Orchard, or try the succulent cherries and stone fruit, available in season.

Throw a line in at the Hillwood Jetty or use the gas barbeques. 

Take a hike up to the Mt Direction semaphore and get the best panoramic view of the Tamar Valley.

Top off your experiences with gourmet dining, cheese and wine tastings and accommodation in one of the local B&B’s.
