TrailGraze is set to return for 2023, with a line-up of the best food and wine Tasmania has to offer.

Due to the resounding success of its inaugural event last year, TrailGraze has excitedly returned for another weekend of delicious food and drink in the rolling hills of Tasmania’s north-west. This celebration of the best producers in the region is bound to impress any foodie, and showcases the abundance of this wonderful state.


The beauty of Tasmania


The TrailGraze experience

TrailGraze is an event including more than 30 producers, experts in everything from wine, craft beer, cheese, meat and confectionery. Guests of the event are provided with a map of a set trail through the Tasmanian region, enjoying workshops, tastings, live music and vendors around every corner.

Inspired by the stunning landscape, participating chefs were challenged to develop recipes that championed local ingredients and culture, as well as the perfect drinks to match. This collection of meals will be available to try along the track, and features in a souvenir book available at the end.

Last year, over 1000 guests attended TrailGraze, with even higher numbers expected at its second season. The event is run by Tasting Trail, who host year-round self-guided tours of Tasmania. Tasting Trail has withstanding relationships with some of the region’s best producers and farmers, who have collaborated with the team to create an interactive online map and itinerary.

Cooking up a storm

Ahead of the event’s launch, TrailGraze will host some of Australia’s finest chefs, giving them a hands-on look at the area and its offerings. Industry leaders such as Lilly Trewartha, Danielle Alvarez, Mike Bennie, James Welsh and Sabina Newton are joining last year’s star-studded team to ensure visitors get the full trail experience, curating delicious menus and opportunities to engage with cooking in a whole new light.

Meet the producers

Across the trail, there will be tons of seasoned producers, each offering a unique experience. Those who visit The Truffle Farm will have the chance to participate in a guided truffle tour and hunting experience, where they can see truffle dogs at work firsthand. The Farm allows everyone to learn the history of truffles from the people that know it best, enjoy a tasting, or even indulge with a platter-style lunch.

For cheese lovers, Ashgrove Dairy Door is the ideal location. Watch cheesemakers at work in their facilities, learn about the process, and enjoy their award-winning products including milk, specialty cheeses, and gelato. Plus, visitors can stay for high cheese, a high tea with a twist.

There are also several breweries and wineries on the trail, such as Prickly Mo Wines. Located on a stunning farm that spans acres, the cellar door is home to wonderful views of the surrounding landscape. With live acoustic music and food trucks on site, guests can spend the afternoon basking in the sun and sampling plenty of rich wines from an extensive collection.




Or, for those who prefer spirits, spend some time at Western Tiers Distillery. They pride themselves on their collection of triple-distilled whiskeys, premium gins, and unique vodkas, all brewed in a state of the art distillery. A tasting bar will be open for visitors to sample their exceptional range, showcasing their passion for quality and flavour.

There’s plenty of other producers featured on this year’s trail, and TrailGraze is busy preparing for 22 and 23 April. The event is free for everyone, but registration is required.
