Welcome to the 2021 Great Eastern Wine Week
East Coast Tasmania, 3-13 September 2021
YES you read that right! The Great Eastern Wine Weekend, is now extended to be held over a WEEK!
Join us for a celebration of the region’s finest wine and fare. Stretching along a coastline envied for its cool climate drops, the weekend features exciting events and experiences. Vineyards, wine producers and makers, local tourism operators, restaurants, cafes and Freycinet Lodge, come together to share the hidden delights of East Coast Tasmania.
Why not combine an event with mountain biking in St Helens, a boat cruise in the Bay of Fires, exploring Freycinet Peninsula and Wineglass Bay or a visit to Maria Island to see their unique blonde wombats. There’s so much to do!
