trivia

  • Tasmania’s first apple trees were planted by Captain Bligh on Bruny Island in the 1700s.

  • With the world’s cleanest air – that’s not an idle boast, that’s a fact – Tasmania’s the perfect place to grow naturally brilliant apples and pears.

  • During the 19th century, word was that cider could be a cure for various ailments.

  • The Huon region is still Tasmania’s biggest apple grower – somewhere around 80% of apples grown in the state hail from there.

  • Today, Tasmania only has 20 major orchards – down from over 2,200 in the 1970s. Call it a case of quality over quantity.

  • Before Europeans settled in Tasmania, Tasmanian Aborigines made their own cider from the fermented sap of a special gum tree variety.
