Bridestowe Estate is the largest lavender farm in the Southern Hemisphere, famous for the spectacular view of the lavender in bloom in December and January.

House of Rhubarb


This is your opportunity to taste-test the many products of Tasmania's RhuBru; a company focussed on value adding nature's grade rhubarb stalks harvested from the fertile volcanic soils of Tassie's North East.
The House of Rhubarb is a small shop front, established to encourage those who are visiting Scottsdale to sample all the rather unique, award winning rhubarb based products made right there in the town from produce grown just down the road at one of the southern hemisphere's largest rhubarb farms.
Taste the relish, jams, syrups, cordials - all based on rhubarb - you can even get a bunch of fresh rhubarb from the home garden. Holger and Jan welcome you to Beulah - the home of the House of Rhubarb and invite you to call in, have a taste and a chat about a business that is decidedly focussed on producing quality Tasmanian condiments by utilising perfectly good stalks that are just not quite beautiful enough for the fresh stalks market - it's nature's grade!

Barnbougle Dunes


Barnbougle Dunes is a links golf course with breathtaking views near Bridport, north-east Tasmania. The dramatic scenery and challenging 18-hole championship course is among the best links courses worldwide.
The layout is a mix of voluptuous dunes, sandy waste and rough typical of a links course. The same blend of fescue grass extends from tee to green, and there is dramatic movement in its bumpy fairways and rolling greens. This is best exemplified by the outward nine, which plays through a series of saddles that both shelter and direct play lines. The back nine is striking with multiple panoramas of the course, adjoining the bay and the town of Bridport in the distance.
Enjoy the par-71 design which does not require brute strength, but allows you to exert power to an advantage at certain points. No matter what your ability, this course lends itself well to strategy and plotting a suitable path. There is a driving range, putting green and chipping green with bunkers for you to hone your technique. At the end of the day enjoy the spectacular public clubhouse or stay in the Barnbougle cottages.
Barnbougle Dunes is approximately a one-hour drive north-east of Launceston (83 km).
