Back from another amazing trip! (my 4th with C R McPhail). China is the most amazing place. Ron and his team really turned it on with the first Fonterra Farmers trip. The hotels were beautiful – we kept saying they couldn’t get better but they did!

A lovely mix of farming venues and sight seeing – the Great Wall, Terracotta Army and then the cruise down the Yangtze to see the 3 Gorges Dam.. mind blowing and should be on everyones bucket list. So many highlights, too many to mention but the food, the people and the culture plus many friends made on the trip.. a lifetime of memories.

Tour Details

Tasmania in Autumn is one of the best seasons to visit the “Apple Isle”; the days are still warm and the deciduous trees are turning, providing a colourful backdrop to a fascinating look at life in Australia’s most southerly state.   Meet inspiring families in a diverse range of innovative agricultural and horticultural enterprises. Enjoy sampling fresh regional produce from the land and the sea and visit some of the vineyards and distilleries that define the entrepreneurial spirit of Tasmania. Visit historic Highfield – the start of agriculture and one of the earliest houses in northwest Tasmania. Down south, wander among the stalls of the makers, growers and producers at the popular Salamanca Market, before experiencing Tasmania’s rich convict heritage at Port Arthur.  With traditional livestock operations, plus whisky, wine and oysters, bulbs and timber, this tour offers a glimpse into an island state really pushing the boundaries in every way.
