Tasmania's quality food and wine attract foodies from interstate and all over the world. It has built a reputation over recent decades as Australia’s Gourmet Island. At Tasmanian gourmet gifts we have hand chosen produce from the best our state has to offer to include in our Hampers.

We are really sorry about this - and will have it fixed as soon as we can get a the tech team in on the phone to sort it out. Monday can't come soon enough!... continue reading

Honey! Did you know?

Western Australia's Department of Agriculture and Foods in conjunction with Quarantine WA are serious about protecting their honey! Currently, the Western Australian honey industry is free from a known European Foulbroad Disease, which has been found in other states of Australia. The Disease can kill bees, and WA are keen to keep their bees safe! It is possible to bring honey into Western Australia if the honey has been heat-treated and the individual obtains a certificate from a relevant Quarantine Authority. But, the easiest way is not to bring it in at all. The Tasmanian honey selection available in our hampers are safe and free from the spores that carry the European Foulbroad Disease, but as the majority of Tasmanian honey products are not heat-treated, we are unable to send them to Western Australia. If you are sending a gi... continue reading
