No Lavender

Happy to again visit but still no Lavender, wrong time of the year but we were happy to browse the gift shop, and we were not charged.

The lavender was flowering and the air was humming with bees and the smell of lavender. It was amazing to see the contoured rows of purple lavender. It costs to visit the farm except for resident Tasmanians but the memories you will take away make it worthwhile even if you have to pay for entry. Entry includes a map and... More

It is a 3 kilometre drive from the main road turn off to the Bridestowe Estate. Only when we arrived there did we discover that they charge a. $7.50 entry fee per person if you are not a Tasmanian. We turned around and drove out, I think this is a discriminatory rip off for visitors. I am sure if entry... More

This place is like a blind date u got set up with. Lots of hard sell n ravings but u are sceptical abt its authenticity. But its surprisingly pleasant. We arrived without the blooms on a dreary day but the fields still looked magnificent n the shop entices with lavender everything. The lavender ice cream pancakes were yummy. Just get... More

Though we missed the lavender season, we can still smell the beautiful fragrant. The lavender bear is overpriced, nearly $70 each. I don't recommend anyone to go for the bear, rather there are a lot of other great souvenir options in the shop.

Having a partner who is right into lavender, a visit to Bridestowe Lavender Farm was a must do on our tour of Tasmania. This is a very popular attraction for lavender lovers, and quite an impressive business for those not as much into lavender as others. The lavender had been harvested before our visit, but still, the area of lavender... More

I'm not really a lavender fan but was curious as to how it was grown and what it could be used for. The owners boast that it now is the largest in the world ( if I heard correctly) The tour was very informative, even though the lavender was not in flower.The distillation process was very interesting, differentiating between the...

Regretfully we missed the beautiful (according to photos...) Lavender fields, because the harvest had been completed before we got there (You can't win them all....). However, the fields are still beautiful, even in their "naked" green colour, and the scenery around the farm is still very pretty. The shop is a Lavender lover's dream....anything you could imagine that has Lavender... More

A lavender farm was not my first choice, but, ever-obedient, off we went! As others have mentioned, it's quite a drive from Launceston (about 40 minutes) but through pleasant country - it also gives some variety to take a round trip back through George Town. The farm was in tip-top condition - late February, so the lavender had been harvested,... More
