Located just 50-minutes outside of Launceston, feel free to pop in and indulge in the incredible vistas of this Tasman icon. Being the largest lavender farm within the southern-hemisphere, Bristowe Estate houses almost endless rows of lavender flowers, drenching the fields in a breathtaking purple hue.
Visitors are welcomed for tours of the farm all-year-round, though, the usual time to see the famous view of the lavender in full bloom is from December through to early February. Although, this can vary slightly every year depending on the conditions of the season. If you are visiting during the blooming season, you can expect to pay a $10 entry fee, though, this is voided if you are a Tasman resident, just bring I.D.!
When you’re done smelling the flowers, stop by the visitor centre to browse unique products containing Bridestowe’s famous lavender oil and dried flowers. They also offer an extensive range of fragrant Australian-made gifts created for the bath, body and home and, of course, the world-famous Bobbie the Bear.
