Stanley On Show

In Stanley, we know how lucky we are to be able to access the fabulous produce that our region produces -  we present it in our Bistro, along with Tasmanian cool climate wines, to be able to share the experience with our guests.

Recently Stanley featured in the episode of Gourmet Farmer Afloat on SBS, presented by Mathew Evans, Nick Haddow and Ross O’Meara.

To satisfy their inner gourmands, Matthew, Nick and Ross will explore the rich culinary experiences that lie along Tasmania’s shore and in its picturesque inlets and estuaries. To keep things authentic, they’ll also create and consume heritage dishes eaten by the 17th and 18th century navigators and early colonists.

After 8,000 years of isolation, Tasmania was once again joined to mainland Australia when a telephone cable was installed across Bass Strait. Matthew, Ross and Nick travel westward across the north coast, heading for the port of Stanley. Here, they want to re-create the historic menu from the 1936 inauguration of the cable, at a dinner for 50 people.
