The Derwent Experience

Evening

The Derwent Experience showcases the highlights and reveals hidden gems of the Derwent Valley AND surrounding areas – that covers a big chunk of Tasmania; Mt Field NP, Lake St Claire, Coal Valley, even down to Lake Pedder and Gordon Dam.
We offer small group circuit tours out of Hobart that focus on the ethos of ‘Taste. Explore. Relax.’ We currently run two public tours on certain days of the week: Drink Derwent Valley (by day) and Crafty Hobart (by night).
We are also available for charter and curated small group experiences for up to 11 passengers in our Executive class Renault Master Bus with Driver for “Your Day, Your Way.”
So please contact us and we can quote based on your preferences and interests – for anywhere in Tasmania.

There is so much to see, taste and experience in the Derwent Valley and surrounding areas – especially for lovers of wine and craft drinks, cellar doors and meeting the makers.

Life is better with a Derwent Experience.

Indulge your beer curiosity…or your passion for great beer.
Hobart is blessed with at least 8 beautiful breweries and in this small group guided tasting tour you will be introduced to all of them and we will visit four.
The tour includes a half nip of classic cask Lark Whisky at their Cellar Door. We then visit four breweries around Hobart,
including out to Moonah and we do this safely and comfortably in The Derwent Experience executive class 11 seater bus.
Drinks at each of the four breweries is included. You will have a wonderful opportunity to taste a wide variety of styles and
experience some special places with great company.
A welcome from the venue owners and staff is also a nice way to connect with a place and its products. Light snacks will also be provided, and plenty of water as well.
We finish the tour at our last venue around 9.30 pm, after which we can take you back to your accommodation or home.
While our Public Tours follow a friendly route, we are also happy to offer your group a custom experience. Please

Tasmania’s best Craft Drinks tour for Diversity, Quality & Value – there is something for everyone.
Drink Derwent Valley will introduce you to over 25 unique drinks across four gorgeous venues – Wine, Whisky, Gin, Vodka, Rum, Ciders and Ales.
Each tasting comes to life in beautiful country settings – all in Hobart’s backyard.
The venues we visit have collectively won numerous awards, and many of their labels have loyal followings, often selling out very quickly upon release. Maybe you will have a wow! moment and purchase a bottle or two – often hard to resist.
The countryside we travel through is serene and beautiful. We follow the Derwent River in comfort, and through expert guiding will learn a little about the history, characters and economy of the Valley to form a positive connection and enhance the delicious food and drink.
Tastings at each venue are included. Lunch will be at a 19th Century country pub serving delicious food, except between $11-$25, but byo snacks or lunch is also fine.
