The nights may be growing colder, but Willie Smith’s Apple Shed is heating up for this year’s Huon Valley Mid-Winter Fest. Wassail!!
Hints of the dark arts and age-old secrets from the Vaterland. Recipes and ratios, barter and brine…sounding more like medieval alchemy than modern day cooking! This is the story of the Woodbridge Smokehouse, one of Tasmania’s best kept secrets…but for how much longer…?!

The 4hr return walk to Cape Hauy will not only expose you to stunning panoramic views of the cape, but also north towards the Devil’s Arch and south towards Cape Pillar and Tasman Island.
