Barnbougle Dunes & The Lost Farm
One of Australia’s premier golf destinations. Ranked number 35 in the world by U.S
Golf magazine and Australia’s number one public access course.
Located on the undulating coastal dunes at Bridport, North East Tasmania, Barnbougle Dunes golf links has become one of the world's iconic golf destinations. The 18 hole course echo's the character of the traditional golf courses of Scotland and Ireland with rolling fairways and challenging greens have been shaped from the natural contour of the coastal dunes that "link" the farmland to the beaches in the same fashion as the original Scottish courses; with little impact on the surrounding environment.
Enjoy local produce and spectacular coastal views in the clubhouse restaurant and take an opportunity to stay on site in one of the beach cottages or self-contained Executive Villas. Stay a night, experience the wellness centre, the restaurant, the club rooms and sports bar.
Bridestowe Lavender Farm
Located in Nabowla, Tasmania, Bridestowe Estate Lavender Farm was established in 1922 and is one of the worlds largest, single commercial lavender farms that produces the finest quality lavender flowers and lavender oil used traditionally in the perfumery industry.
Tours of this world renowned farm are available during December to January when the flowers are at their best. You are also welcome to picinc under the trees or grab a bite to eat in the Woodcroft Cafe.
There are also lavender products and locally made arts and crafts that can be purchased while on site that would make a great souvenir.
Just miutes away from the township of Ringarooma are the magnificant Ledgerwood 'Memorial Tree Sculptures'. This history of the tree sculptures is based on local men killed in action during World War I.
The trees were orginally planted in honor of the fallen men, but the council recently delclared the trees unsafe, but instead of cutting down the trees completely, Eddie Freeman was commssioned to sculpt a story into each of the tree stumps.
Each sculpture depicts the story of a fallen soldier and has for ever immortalised the memory of these men making the drive out to Ledgerwood an opportunity not to be missed.
Situated around Pyengana is the St. Columbia Falls which are Tasmania's highest water falls which drop nearly 90 meters.
Also while in Pyengana, why not try out some of the local cheeses made at the Pyengana Dairy Co. There are plenty of samples and an opportunity to see the cheese being made with the equipment used when the factory first opened more than 100 years ago.
Once you have finished with the delicious cheese, you will then need to wash it all down in one of Tasmania's oldest pubs, The Pub in the Paddock. As the name suggests, this pub is quite literally situated in the middle of a paddock. Licenced since 1880, The Pub in the Paddock offers hearty country meals and nice cold beer.
These are just a sample of great places to visit within North Eastern Tasmania. Speak with Rob to learn about other great places to visit to truly customise your tour.
