Forest Walks Lodge
Deloraine forms the centre of a rich agricultural district and increasingly local farmers
are turning to specialty crops to diversify their incomes. We have access to local venison, organic lamb, free range pork, fresh wasabi and truffles.
Some of our dishes feature fresh Tasmanian fish. Because the raw ingredients are sourced locally, as well as being fresh,
this also reduces the food miles on our meals. We cater for a range of diets.
Local cheesmakers Asgrove and Elgar Farms provide a variety of cheeses, milk and yoghurt.
Other foods are sourced from a local traditional smallgoods maker and salmon and ginsing
producer 40degree South. Free range eggs and organic meats come from the neighbours at High
Marsh. Fresh fruit and vegetables, much of it organic, come from the valley and increasingly our own garden and orchard.
We have a small cellar of Tasmanian wines, chosen annually, to compliment our food. Our wines include the award winning Vello Reisling 2010 and
Iron Pot Bay Chardonay/Pinot Noir Kyra Vintage 2006, several Pinot Noir's including the local Three Willows Vinyard release and a Chardonnay and
Sauvignon Blanc from Stefano Lubiana.
For a special occasion birthday or anniversary we can cook almost anything you would like, as long as it is local, including crayfish in season.
Crayfish will add to the cost of an evening meal and needs to be ordered a week at least ahead of your arrival.
Reviews from Trip Advisor
Evening meals typically consist of three courses, an entree, main course and desert or
cheese platter. Our chef will discuss the menu with you before preparing the meals to
discover your preferences. All meals are prepared individually with whatever ingredients
are to hand at the time. There is no set menu and we have experience with a range of diets
including gluten free, lactose free and low fat.
Breakfasts feature a full range of fresh and home preserved fruits, breads, cereals, yoghurt,
as well as hot dishes such as eggs, bacon and tomatoes.
Lunches are either a picnic hamper or a soup and salad combination with fresh home-baked
bread and local cheese.
