Journeys : August September 2009
In Tasmania today Glass artist Richard Clements In the town’s original courthouse, the Petty Sessions Cafe and Gallery offers an imaginative menu featuring local specialties such as Atlantic salmon, Huon Valley mushrooms and local coolclimate wines. www.pettysessions.com.au Further afield You can buy Summer Kitchen Organic Bakery’s splendid wood-fired bread at Salamanca Market – but it’s even better to call in to the source in Ranelagh, just north of Huonville. Their organic sourdough is a special treat. Marguerite Street, Ranelagh Crossing to Woodbridge on C627 from Gardners Bay brings you to Hartzview Vineyard, home of delicious fruit wines and a fine pinot. It’s also the site of the heritage-listed pickers’ huts village, sensitively restored and maintained by vineyard owners Rob and Anthea Patterson. Take a self-guided walk to discover the stories of the Huon’s smallfruit industry. www.hartzview.com.au Across the D’Entrecasteaux Channel on Bruny Island, winter touring can bring the drama of wild weather, big seas and changing cloudscapes – or the beauty of calm, clear winter skies. At Great Bay, call Hartzview Vineyard and historic pickers’ huts in for Nick Haddow’s wonderful creations from the Bruny Island Cheese Company; and pick up some of Joe and Nicole’s Get Shucked oysters at the Adventure Bay shop. The many attractions of the Huon Valley, D’Entrecasteaux Channel and Bruny Island deserve more than a day trip – if you can get away on Friday afternoon and stay a couple of nights, there’s plenty to fill a pleasant autumn or early winter weekend.
