24 Dec 2015 - Tasmania Day 11: Bridestowe Lavender Estate

The journey from St Helens to Bridestowe Lavender Estate took us about 2 hours.
This 265 acre site is noted for its manicured fields of lavender, beautiful gardens and sophisticated tourist facilities and attracts visitors throughout the year.
The farm is in full bloom mid December.  The harvest process begins in early January and runs for 4-5 weeks.  As such, we were here at the right time!
In the past one week, we had come across several lavender farm but they were nothing compared to Bridestowe Estate.  Look at all these photos and you'll know why.
Did you notice a black spot at the top right hand corner of below photo? Enlarge it to find out what it is.  I did not realize it until I reviewed the photos back home.
While waiting for the guided tour, we had sausages and pancake for lunch at the cafe.  Of course, we will not miss the popular Lavender Ice Cream!
The guide brought us around the farm and explain all the seeding and harvesting activities throughout the year.  Very informative!
At the end of our visit, we bought some souvenirs at the gift shop.
