Fresh Tassie Strawberries

Here are some more fun food photos from our terrific Tasmanian honeymoon! While on the road to Port Arthur we found a strawberry farm. You could pick your own or buy some ready-picked.


Strawberry sales office

We opted for the ready picked version as we were in a bit of a hurry. We wanted to leave plenty of time for seeing the historic site at Port Arthur. We were welcomed by two very cute dogs - you can just make out one of them in this picture.

This tray of strawberries was about $5 if memory serves me correctly. (It was only a few months ago! My memory is starting to pack up already!)


Yummy berry

Back in the car we enjoyed these berries all the way down to Port Arthur.

If you're going to Tassie, I really urge you to spend a day at Port Arthur. It's fascinating, moving and melancholy and an important reminder of Australia's convict heritage and the people who eventually helped to build our country.

    Yum Strawberries!
    Port Aruthur is such a sad place, but so beautiful too *sigh*

    Jimmy Trinket reckons he remembers this little strawberry place. Unfortunately, I don't. Probably because I was concentrating on driving - as per usual. But that's a story for another day... ;)

    Will you come and visit us when we move to Tassie? (JT is very keen!)

    Hi Clare, Port Arthur is hard to describe isn't it? It's so beautiful, so sad and so interesting. So many horrible things happened there, but it seems so peaceful now.

    Hi McHills/Strawberry! Of course we will come and visit you when you move to Tassie! Hurry up and get down there so I've got an excuse to take a holiday! I think "Claremont" sounds like a nice surburb to live in ;)

    Luv the strawberry action shot in the car! =) I love strawbs! And I love those little roadside fruit sellers too.

    Hey AG, it's nice to have a little memento of that hire car. It was our constant companion during the nine days and 1500km we spent together!
