Claremont

The Tasmanian sweet-tooth trail leads 23km north of Hobart to Claremont and the open gates of Cadbury's model factory which produces more chocolate and cocoa than any other plant in the land.

You must book in advance to take the guided tour which includes the chance to stock up on your favourite sweetmeats at discounted prices.

The town on Hobart's northern fringes takes its name from local settler Henry Bilton's Claremont House, which was built in the 1830s and which, in turn, was named in honour of one of the royal homes of England.

Children and the young-at-heart are constantly beating a path to Claremont"s door to drool from the public gallery at Alpenrail, widely acknowledged as the largest and most realistic model train operation in Australia.

The Alpenrail collection includes faithful miniatures of most of the world"s great locomotives and trains and, perhaps the most loved workhorse in children"s literature, Thomas the Tank Engine. Children are often invited to take the Thomas controls.

Laurel Bank Vineyard


Laurel Bank Vineyard is a boutique vineyard at Granton, Southern Tasmania. Granton overlooks the Derwent River west of Hobart, a 15-minute drive from the city centre (18 km).
The picturesque, three hectare Laurel Bank Vineyard produces a range of medal and award-winning cool climate wines including pinot noir, merlot, cabernet, sauvignon blanc and cabernet franc. You can taste the range of wines at the cellar door by appointment and enjoy the great views of the Derwent River.
Tasmania's cool climate sets it apart from the rest of Australia as a prime wine-growing region. The Island's first experiment with grapevines led to a white wine being shown at the Paris Exhibition in 1848. Since then, the Tasmanian wine industry has grown to over 200 vineyards, producing more than 6,500 tonnes of grapes per year. Tasmania's cool climate with its long, sunny autumns is perfect for growing intensely-flavoured Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Gew?rtztraminer and Riesling grapes.

Claremont: Events

MONA FOMA - MOFO


Hobart's MONA FOMA (Museum of Old and New Art Festival of Music and Art) in Tasmania will be held January 13-18 2016, plus a few surprise events either side.
Curated by Brian Ritchie (Violent Femmes, The Break), MOFO 2016 will be held in Hobart city venues before a frenetic weekend at Mona (Jan 15-17).
The festival will be packed with music and art.
Mofo at Mona will be digging in deep; performances will resonate across the whole Mona site, inside and out; from the Nolan Gallery to the Organ Room; the Escher-esque stairwells to the Moorilla Barrel Room; and the outdoor stage and lawns to the sandstone Void, 14 metres underground.
"Mofo asks you to surrender to music, sound, sight and space", curator Brian Ritchie says. "Mona plus music creates one big pulsing organism. Whether you are a regular visitor or first-timer, Mofo 2016 will show off Mona in unimaginable ways".
