At last year’s inaugural Tasmanian Travel Expo, we came oh so close to being voted most popular stand. But the North East region will be back again this time around… with a bigger, better and tastier offering!

North East at Tasmanian Travel Expo

The Tasmanian Travel Expo will be held in the new Princes Wharf shed, straight opposite Salamanca. Visit Friday 9 September 5:00pm-9:00pm or Saturday 10 September 9:00am-4:00pm. Entry is FREE.

Before or after (or in-between!) stocking up at the Salamanca Market on Saturday, come in and see what the North East of Tasmania has to offer. Rosemary and Tony from the local tourism association will be joined by Kama from Bridestowe Lavender Farm and Gina from the Yondover goat dairy and cheesery.

Nose your way to the North East stand for a tasting treat of goat cheese, rhubarb chutney or syrup, and Pipers Brook wines. And while you’re there don’t miss the chance to win accommodation at any one of Anabels, Belle Cottage, Beulah B&B or Platypus Park Country Retreat. There will also be a draw for a six pack… of Janz methode tasmanoise… it’s Tasmanian for champagne!

What more reason do you need to visit the Tasmanian Travel Expo in Hobart this weekend? Who will get your vote for most popular stand?
