What is included

Conversations in the city

Join us for a Conversation dedicated to exploring the power of standing out whilst embracing individuality.   
 

This forum brings together visionaries, innovators, and changemakers to discuss and celebrate agritourism’s vital role in regional tourism.  

Listen to keynote speaker Lauren Douglass, CEO, Australian Regional Tourism, as she discusses her passion for regional tourism and where agritourism fits in.
 

Hear inspiring stories from operators who have carved their paths and made a difference.  Engage in meaningful discussions about authenticity and the importance of embracing your story to make a lasting impression. 

Network, connect, and spark new ideas with operators from Tasmania and beyond.

The 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.

A Spark in the Dark

Witness the captivating beauty of Tasmanian wildlife corridors captured in black and white imagery accompanied by the melodious sounds of a harp within a darkened cellar door.  
 

Afterwards hear from a thought-provoking guest speaker on wildlife conservation and ignite your own conversation around a fire, holding a warm mulled cider under the starlit sky.

Producers Dinner

Sharing an occasion just for agritourism operators from Tasmania and beyond, we will learn more about the produce of our local agri-food producers and where tourism fits in.
