A CONVICT-BUILT bakehouse is the latest addition to the expanding visitor attraction at Redlands Estate, near the Salmon Ponds at Plenty. Premier Lara Giddings visited this morning to officially open the property to the public.Ms Giddings said the "Old Bakehouse" built upon the previously announced whisky distillery at Redlands.
"Redlands Estate is working with the Pigeon Whole Bakery in Moonah and Callington Mill to produce an artisan bread that will reinforce Tasmania's reputation for unique, high quality produce," Ms Giddings said. "This builds on February's announcement of the Redlands whisky distillery and tourism project which will establish Redlands Estate as a major culinary tourist experience.
"In today's competitive tourism market, it's more important than ever that we continue to create top quality experiences that attract visitors and exceed their expectations. This partnership between Redlands Estate, Pigeon Whole Bakery and the Callington Mill is an example of how collaboration and innovation is helping to grow jobs and opportunities in the tourism industry. This move into bread production will support the creation of jobs at Redlands Estate, the Callington Mill in Oatlands and the Pigeon Whole Bakery in Moonah."
Redlands Estate is now open from 10am daily. For more information visit www.redlandsestate.com.au
