New thread in response to the great interest recently expressed in my last Hobart Wine tasting/Craft beer/Whiskey/Cider/Gin tour of 2018.

Proposed dates so far 1. Australia Day weekend
2. 20/21/22 March to coincide with Aust vs NZ one day international
3. Easter but there are often family commitments at this time.

Any other thoughts please add and maybe a higher level than myself can create a poll.
And just to entice any maybes out there, consider this desert created in Hobart as a Pastry Chef’s Breakfast.....just to prove we can fulfil the ‘Food’ component of the tour.

Do we have to wait until next year?;) I really want to get to the tulip farm which is open from 26th September to the end of October so if there is enough interest in an October get together I can do both (and please QF can we have a DSC soon) :p

March or October 2020 both have international cricket....

I would prefer shoulder seasons (autumn, spring) than the “heat” of winter - it’s freezing

I can’t commit to October as this may be when I need to move office (25 of us) , if it doesn’t go ahead then it will be anytime between then and March. That said my initial plan was a road trip, so maybe a long weekend FIFO will have to do?

Looks great - March dates would be the best for us. Shouldn't be too busy but still warm-ish

Table Cape is 4.5+ hours from where Tassieoptom is proposing/planning this event, you would need to be able to stay a bit longer than a weekend to do both

I’d love to do this as well. Depending on the dates I could do both a tulip farm trip this year and a wine tour trip next year. ;)

I may work out that we do a smaller tour to coincide with a tulip trip and a larger one that suits better wrt fly in fly out attendees.

At this stage I can't commit to any of the proposed dates. Australia Day is definitely out as will be in NSW for a few weeks.

Still interested, but very unlikely that Easter will suit, and unsure at this stage about the other dates. I’m happy with whatever date is set - if I can make it, great, if not, too bad.

I think Easter would be expensive, but then again Australia Day might be too? The dates in March would be my pick.
