Bridestowe Lavender Estate is one of Tasmania’s premier tourist destinations, located a 50-minute drive from Launceston in Tasmania’s scenic North East. Bridestowe Estate is the largest lavender farm in the Southern Hemisphere, famous for the spectacular view of the lavender in bloom in December and January. Visitors are welcomed to the Estate all year round to see the seasons of Tasmania beautifully reflected in the ornamental gardens, manicured fields and native bushland set against the striking backdrop of Mount Arthur.
The visitor centre is stocked with unique products containing Bridestowe’s famous lavender oil and dried flower. We 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. The Woodcroft Cafe offers a delicious range of lavender inspired delicacies including our signature range of lavender ice-creams and light seasonal meals. You can take home the experience with a purchase from Bridestowe’s gourmet range, which includes lavender flower honey, artisan jams and jellies, and culinary lavender, which is used in many of foods available in the cafe. An entry fee of $10 per adult applies during the flowering season. Under 16s welcome free of charge.
