An 'Agritourism' Journey

The Journey offers a uniquely curated agricultural and tourism (agritourism) experience across the north, meeting the produce and passion of farmers/producers in the place where they create.

Each day promises a unique adventure, guiding you through varied landscapes to enjoy local cuisine and beverages, musical performances, and the inspiration behind the food we eat. The Saturday and Sunday experiences are different and can be booked together or separately depending on your interest.

On Saturday, you venture into the Lilydale region, indulging in a range of delights, from charcuterie to exquisite champagne.

Sunday finds us delving deeper into the culture and heritage of a different part of the region, uncovering the essence of its local produce.

Start your Journey at a time to suit and meander your way through the array of experiences available.

How to travel through the Lilydale region

The Journey is designed to be enjoyed with family and friends, connecting life’s experiences through the pleasure of local food.

We encourage you to travel together. Embarking on a shared journey contributes to our efforts to minimise the carbon footprint associated with the Journey.

The Journey will start each day from a single location and will include everything you need to embark on the ‘Journey’ for 4 to 5 hours. To help minimise the impact on the landscapes we will travel to, we ask you to select a time for arrival during the checkout process that best suits you.

Sunday 4th August

The Journey will head into the southern part of the region, close to Relbia and Evandale. Starting with a Farming Yarn on Country, participants will have the chance to learn more about healing country and the cultural practices used over thousands of years through the voices of Tasmanian Aboriginal Community members. The conversation will be shared with the farmer, who will talk about their knowledge and the practices they use. Share Indigenous food over morning tea and immerse yourself in a space where ‘knowledge’ meets ‘knowledge’.

Following the Farming Yarn, we will then move to Harland Rise where we will continue the discussion on the importance of land management and food production. A panel session Chaired by Caroline Brown (Chair agriCULTURED), including Luke Mabb (Australian Association for Bush Adventure Therapy), and Larna Pittiglio (Heartlands Tasmania, & Tasmanian Produce Collective), will talk through the importance of local food production, and the land management ingredients needed to produce great food. You will have the chance to lean more about the restoration of the Chapel and the accommodation available.
