About the taste of Tasmania

Enjoying the flavours of The taste of Tasmania in the sun

Tasmania’s most popular and enduring summer event, The Taste of Tasmania returns to Hobart’s waterfront in December 2017/ January 2018.

Seafood, cheeses, berries, cool-climate wines, boutique beers and ciders and much more, representing regions from right around the state, are on offer at close to 70 stalls located both inside the Princes Wharf No.1 shed, and outside.

The Taste of Tasmania  features a fabulous entertainment program, with more than 100 buskers, local musicians and DJs performing throughout the event. All performances are free, but buskers may ask for a donation after their performance.

Our Kids in the Park space offers classes, performances, activities and a nightly family-friendly movie: something for children of all ages.

Celebrity host Maeve O’Meara introduces local chefs in daily presentations at the Smeg Kitchen. They’re informative, fun and free.

We also have several ticketed events, including a New Year’s Eve party featuring Kate Ceberano and Nicky Bomba’s Bustamento, beverage tasting sessions in the Tasting Table and an eclectic range of Taste Food Tours. Wine critic and writer Huon Hooke will deliver a keynote address on the development of the Tasmanian wine industry over the past 25 years.

The majestic River Derwent, Hobart’s historic wharves and Salamanca Place provide a stunning backdrop to this annual celebration of quality Tasmanian produce and local talent. We look forward to seeing you there.
