Miss the recent Live From Aus special with Matthew Evans, aka The Gourmet Farmer, on the Bay Of Fires Lodge Walk? Catch up with this short video of his Top 3 moments and get a sneak peak at this phenomenal Great Walk Of Australia!
Best known and loved for his work on SBS’s long-running TV show The Gourmet Farmer and cookbooks, Matt has become a proud Tassie ambassador, having moved from the mainland many years back to start up the brilliant Fat Pig Farm and put his chefs skills to good use, growing, producing and entertaining guests at his renowned long lunches on the farm.
We were chuffed to have Matt come to the Bay Of Fires Lodge Walk and have him and Sadie show everyone some of what makes this Great Walk Of Australia so special, including it’s incredibly spectacular and remote location on the North Eastern tip of Tasmania.
A few clouds didn’t deter Matt from wandering the amazing, vast white sand beaches, going for a kayak or even taking a dip in the world’s greatest outdoor bath tub – a special treat exclusively for the use of guests on the walk!
