‘A Taste of the Huon’, now in its 27th year, is a celebration of fine food, wine, entertainment, arts and crafts from the Huon Valley and Channel region – held at Ranelagh which is only 30 minutes scenic drive south of Hobart.
This region produces an abundance of apples and although Tasmania is still recognised as the 'Apple Isle', cherries, mushrooms, salmon, vineyards, berries and truffles are also farmed in the area and along with much more, promoted at the Festival.
Entertainment is at its very best and each year there is a new programme. And most importantly there will be loads of attractions to keep the children occupied.
This Festival is one of the most popular regional events in Tasmania. The Huon Valley, D’entrecasteaux Channel and Bruny Island regions of Tasmania are now being recognized as one of Tasmania’s leading tourist destinations.
Tasmania’s renowned Huon Trail winds through this region and as such it has become synonymous with fine food and wines which can be found in the abundant cafes, restaurants, wineries and farms that are scattered amongst the rolling hills and along the stunning Huon River.
