During our stay in North East Tasmania, we went to visit the nearby Bridestowe Lavender Estate (you can read all about the experience in the subsequent article we published). It’s a true highlight of the North East, and that’s saying something when you know just how much there is to discover in the outstanding region between the Tamar Valley and the East Coast. We really enjoyed our time at Bridestowe, touring the distillery with farm-manager Anna; inspecting the gift shop and dining in the cafe. But it was winter, so there wasn’t a purple bloom in sight. Luckily, our trusty colleague Dan Fellow has conducted a photo shoot at the farm recently, and has allowed us to share his wonderful images with Think Tasmania readers. Enjoy!

Bobbie the Bear

Not only is Bridestowe Lavender Farm a popular place to visit in person, it’s also home to one famous Tasmanian. The intense popularity of Bobbie the Bear has seen online stocks exhausted and the staff run off their feet trying to keep up with demand. We expressed concern for their stress levels on Facebook, but they assure us they’re “pretty resilient here at the lavender farm – it’s exciting but non-stop – no time to feel tired”. It’s wonderful to hear such an outstanding international success story for a business in Tasmania.
