Redlands Estate, established in 1819. “What was once the most productive farm in Tasmania is now home to one of two ‘paddock to bottle’ single malt whisky distilleries in the world.” We really enjoyed our visit to Redlands. We explored the historic gardens, ponds, canals, old bakehouse, stables (home of two Hobart Cup winners) and outbuildings. This is a place we would be happy to return to again and again, friendly proprietors and lovely ambience.
We looked in vain for platypus, but what a beautiful setting. Apparently there are many platypus’ at Redlands, they were hiding the day that we visited, but the grounds were so lovely, green and damp that just searching for them was enjoyable.
