Brook Eden Vineyard

Brook Eden Vineyard in north-east Tasmania produces exquisite, cool-climate still and sparkling wines. Established in 1988 on the banks of Pipers Brook, Brook Eden is nestled in a picturesque valley of rolling green hills. The vineyards are sited along an ancient ridge of deep, gravelly, well-drained, volcanic soil, with Pipers Brook on one side and a spring-fed, native wetland on the other. At 41º south, and the start of the famed roaring forties, Brook Eden is true cool-climate viticulture. With more sunshine hours per day in summer than on the mainland and our cool, sometimes wind-swept site, our old, well-established, unirrigated vines must struggle a little. They slowly ripen their fruit during a growing season which is one of the longest in Australia. This long slow ripening produces fruit with exceptional flavour and aroma and an ideal balance of sugar and acid. This results in elegant, aromatic wines with intense varietal flavours and distinct regional characteristics. You can taste our award winning Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and a lively Pinot Rose from our cellar door.

Gunns Plains Caves

Mr Bill Woodhouse entered Gunns Plains Cave in 1906 after a hunting trip. The cave consists of a series of caverns and short passages through which visitors are escorted along well lit concrete pathways. The cave entrance is situated 30 metres from the car park. Upon entry a flight of 54 concrete steps are descended. From this point the pathway is fairly level apart from a short ladder to be climbed down. The tour route into the cave is 275 metres long. Occasional dampness underfoot is not troublesome provided visitors wear low-heeled walking shoes. It is not recommended for those with health or mobility concerns. Please check first. The cave was formed by an underground stream that still flows and contains Giant Freshwater Lobster, fish and eel. Platypus sleep and nest in the sandy banks along the river. Lofty chambers contain many varied formations including magnificent calcite shawls. "The cave is renowned for magnificent shawl and flowstone formations. Improvements including LED lighting will assist visitors to enjoy the cave experience." Gunns Plain Cave is open daily (closed Christmas Day) Please see our website for tour times.

Highfield Historic Site

Highfield Historic Site offers a historically accurate vision of a gentleman's home and farm of the 1830s. It sits on a hillside overlooking the lands the manager would have once controlled, with views across to Stanley, The Nut and Bass Strait beyond. The house is being restored over time and its elegant Regency design, convict barracks, barns, stables, and a chapel are surrounded by a large ornamental garden. Edward Curr, the chief agent of the Van Diemen's Land Company, started construction in 1832, and later additions were made by John Lee Archer. The VDL settlement began in 1826 on 350,000 acres granted under Royal Charter by George IV. Today, the original farm has reduced and covers around five acres, which is open to visitors daily from 0930 - 1630 from 1 September to 31 May. During June, July and August the site is open Monday to Friday. The site is also available as a venue for weddings, meetings and artists in residence. School groups and coach groups are also welcome. Highfield is the story of success or tragedy - you decide.
