TASMANIA: North Coast
"It's About People and the Places They Live"
A Long History of a Uniquely Productive Landscape
The north-western coastline stretching from Devenport through Burnie, Wynyard and on the the west coast 'outposts' of Arthur River and Marrawah provide some very diverse settings for a land of wonderful produce and wildlife. Wineries, cheesemakers, chocolate, agricultural fresh produce and some of the freshest seafood from a 'distant' ocean will contribute to an exciting stay.
But it is the people and their stories that will really make this a time to remember. Despite its seemingly remote geography this area was very quickly seen as a settlers paradise and soon after Launceston weas settled as early as 1804 farmers and the specialist food producers that followed them have been supplying the world with their specialties.
To talk with the whiskey distiller, the wine-makers and the cheesemakers and to sample firsthand their produce while listening to their stories you will come away with new ideas and a frsh outlook to match the landscape.
Then there are the 'regular things' like surfing, cruising on the Arthur River, crayfishing, seeing the abalone divers come in with their catch, the fresh-seafood restaurants, the night tours to watch the Tasmanian devils in the wild and a list of other 'regular' activities experienced like never before.
After all, this is the very unique North-western Coast of Tasmania.
