Eating in Tasmania's southeast is an indulgent pleasure. If the Midlands were originally Tasmania's food basket, this baton has now been passed to the southeast, where cheese, stone fruit, berries, oysters, seafood, beer, cider, wine and of course apples are some of the best you'll ever taste. Venues range from hippie cafes to smart winery restaurants and roadside oyster shacks. Enjoy!
