Your taste buds will lead the way on our escorted food and wine journey to Tasmania in Spring 2017. Escape the stresses of life for a week and live it up aboard the beautiful Sun Princess as you cruise south to the Apple Isle, now famed worldwide for its premium, cool climate wines. 


Sailing from Brisbane or Sydney, you’ll cruise to Burnie for a guided tour inland for our first taste of Tasmania’s gastronomic fare. Then explore the ruins of the former Port Arthur penal settlement before we trace Tasmania’s spectacularly rugged coastline to Hobart for an overnight stay. Vineyards are closer to Hobart than in any other Australian capital city so your second complimentary tour will take you on a short drive from the docks to the rows of vines that sweep up the Coal River Valley - one of Tasmania’s top wine producing regions. Sample the vintages of Coal Valley Vineyard, Puddleduck Vineyard and Pooley Wines as well as palate-pleasing taster plates from Wicked Cheese in the picture-perfect heritage village of Richmond. Explore the colonial town’s many galleries and gift shops and walk over Australia’s oldest bridge, built by convicts in 1825. The local ducks are sure to help you frame a picture of the iconic Richmond Bridge!


Aboard Sun Princess you’ll cruise in style in a balcony cabin and be welcomed onboard at an exclusive Cruise Express cocktail function. You’ll also experience a special wine and food event at the brand new ‘Share' by Curtis Stone specialty restaurant onboard which aims to bring people together around the table through a combined love for mouth-watering cuisine.
