Spreyton Cider Co.


Spreyton Cider Co. produces premium Tasmanian ciders made from our own apples. Our Cidery located on our working orchards in Spreyton offers tastings for $10, allowing visitors to try all five ciders and receive a glass or stubby of their favourite.
Spreyton Cider Co. is the latest venture from Spreyton Fresh, home of the finest Fresh Apple Juice since 1998. Our families have been growing apples in Spreyton since 1908. Building on our expertise in producing the best fresh apple juice, our range of ciders are classic examples of the cider maker's art.
All our ciders are made from 100% Tasmanian apples and pears, with most grown in our own orchards right here in Spreyton. We use traditional cider making techniques with a modern twist to create our unique range of ciders. Our cider undergoes secondary fermentation in the bottle and is then bottle conditioned to achieve a light carbonation and a supreme flavour. We have five ciders in our range and the Vintage cider won bronze at the 2013 Australian Cider Awards.
You may wish to purchase Barringwood Park wines from us, as their cellar door recently closed.

The Arboretum is a 66 hectare botanical tree park and nature reserve in Tasmania's North West.
Only a few kilometres from Devonport but a million miles from care, the 66 hectares of landscaped Arboretum and natural bushland was founded in 1984. It offers the opportunity to walk among collections of woody plants from around the temperate world, including many of Tasmania's woody plants.
Set in a peaceful and beautiful valley, you may see some of Tasmania's wildlife, such as swift parrots and platypus.
Cultural and natural heritage combine in the Limestone Heritage Walk, a self-guided walk linking the geology with a century of human activity contributing to colonial and national development. Two hour guided walks are available for a reasonable cost, and can be booked online. Bookings are essential.
The Arboretum offers three picnic shelters, two with coin operated electric barbecues. There are also two general shelters and a platypus observatory and bird hide on the shore of Founders' Lake.
The Tree Park Kiosk offers light refreshments and audio tours. It is operated by volunteers and opens between October and May from 1100 to 1600.

Quiet Cone Latrobe - The


The Quiet Cone, located in Latrobe on Tasmania's beautiful northwest coast offers an incredible experience. Shape, sound and scent and a combination of ancient knowledge in a modern setting create a new level of serenity and quietness.
Your unique experience begins when you enter a giant cone shaped structure designed to offer comfort, resonance and atmosphere. You make yourself at home on the comfortable mattresses and cushions, looking up into the seeming endless cone, while the aroma of sandalwood infuses the air, instilling a sense of well-being and relaxation.
Quietly you hear the resonating tones of symphonic gongs, being softly struck within the dome that encases you. Added to this we have the beautiful tones of Tibetan Singing Bowls and the wonderful sounds of Corinthian Chimes. The sound and vibration together with the sandalwood scent and placid atmosphere of the cone make you feel relaxed and serene.
Even if you have never meditated before, you cannot help but enter a supremely restful yet energising meditative state.
This is an experience you will be keen to repeat and share with others.
A gift shop, gardens, a 'Walk of Contemplation' and other healing therapies on site.

Home Hill


Now owned and operated by the National Trust, Home Hill was the family home of Tasmania's only Prime Minister, Joseph Lyons, his wife Dame Enid Lyons - the first woman elected to Australia's federal parliament - and their 12 children.
Built for the family in 1916, it became their haven from public life and remains largely as it was when Dame Enid last lived there in 1981.
Dame Enid's style is evident throughout the house, with an amazing array of wallpapers from the 1940s to the 1970s beneath classic pressed tin ceilings; and in the garden through the rock walls and paths, the pond and the garden rooms.
Every part of Home Hill houses a rich collection of the political and personal mementos of two people who dedicated their lives to public service and their family, providing an unexpected insight into Australian political life and international relations during the momentous events of the mid-twentieth century.
Situated only a five-minute drive from either the centre of Devonport or the Spirit of Tasmania dock, Home Hill is accessible by guided tour only.
Bookings recommended. Age 6 and under free. Child price is for age 7 to 16.

Edward 'Teddy' Sheean Memorial and Sheean Walk


The Edward 'Teddy' Sheean Memorial and Sheean Walk is a military memorial at Latrobe, North West Tasmania. Latrobe is a ten-minute drive south-east of Devonport (9 km).
The Walkway begins in Latrobe's main street, where you can see the Edward 'Teddy' Sheean Memorial, commemorating the courage and sacrifice of this young seaman. Born near Latrobe in 1923, Edward 'Teddy' Sheean served aboard the HMAS Armidale during the World War II. While en route to Timor in 1942 the Armidale was attacked from the air and destroyed. Although seriously wounded, Teddy Sheean manned an anti-aircraft gun in defence of the Armidale's survivors, remaining at the gun as the ship sank and sacrificing his life to save his shipmates. Teddy was posthumously Mentioned in Despatches, second only to a posthumous Victoria Cross. A Collins Class Submarine has been named after him - the first Australian warship to be named for a Junior Sailor of the Royal Australian Navy.
You can follow the Sheean Walk from central Latrobe to its conclusion at Bell's Parade. Plaques placed along the route commemorate the actions of Australian soldiers who fought in World War II and in the Malaya, Borneo, Vietnam and Korean conflicts.

Bells Parade Reserve


Picturesque Bell's Parade is situated on the Latrobe inlet of the Mersey River. It is named after Robert Bell, who with his half brother Henry Bentinck constructed a wharf and a store on the site in 1855.
From the 1880's it was the main port on the river, becoming northern Tasmania's second major trading port for a period.
Old English trees abound along the Parade adding natural splendour to the tranquillity and with barbecue facilities available it makes an ideal location for a picnic. It is also a popular spot during the warmer months for wedding ceremonies and photo opportunities.
In 1988 as a Bi-Centenary Project, Bell's Parade was extensively restored and beautified through community efforts, with significant contributions from Latrobe Service Clubs and local pioneer families. The history is beautifully depicted on sculptures by Tasmanian artist Stephen Walker, and located at Bell's Parade in an area known as 'Settlers Wharf'.
The 'Henley-On-The-Mersey' carnival is held at Bell's Parade annually on Australia Day, 26 January and has been a major social and sporting event for in excess of 85 years.

Henley-on-Mersey


Celebrate Australia's proud heritage and pioneering spirit as well as our unique quirkiness at Henley on the Mersey.
Try your hand at archery, whip cracking, sheaf tossing, egg throwing, scarecrow competition and the hurdy-gurdy.
A major feature of our program are the annual ferret races; this involves the ferrets being placed in one end of a long pipe that traverses up and down and around hay bales, with the first ferret to fully emerge from the pipe at the other end being the winner.
There are quite some anxious moments when the ferret starts to emerge, the crowd roars with delight and the ferret promptly retreats back into the pipe. There are also the delightful ferret fashion parade and ferret 'chocolate wheel' in which visitors and participants can win great prizes.
