Savory Experiences at Saffire Freycinet
Saffire is intent on connection to place and in a short period of time the resort has become synonymous with culinary excellence and meaningful food and wine experiences that involve exploration of this amazing region and connection to the characters on the East Coast of Tasmania that have won national acclaim for their produce such as the Fisher family at Freycinet Marine Farm and Claudio Radenti at Freycinet Vineyard. The compelling combination of the magical settings, the freshest of produce and the enjoyment of being immersed in the methods and stories make for truly memorable food and wine occasions with true Saffire flair.
Freycinet Marine Oyster Farm

Wine and Vine adventures
A wine lover's delight! At the multi-national award winning local Freycinet Winery, you will learn the art of winemaking and indulge in some fine Tasmanian fare – and some wine tastings of course!
Le Pique Nique
Explore iconic Wineglass Bay on a guided 5km walk, taking you to the crystal white sands and azure waters of South Hazards beach. Loaded with history and untouched beauty, you’ll then be greeted by one of Saffire’s skilled chefs who will indulge you with a gourmet picnic of locally sourced produce, served with a distinctly French flavor. Enjoy charcuterie, local oysters, barbequed seafood and free range meats, farmhouse cheese and petit desserts before being ‘chauffeured’ back aboard our Saffire vessel via the peninsula’s spectacular fiery red coastline.
