Local history. Great food. Real cider.

A large rustic barn surrounded by green pastures and old wooden outbuildings, Willie Smith’s Apple Shed is the home of Willie Smith’s Cider. It’s a place to learn about the apple history of the Huon Valley while enjoying food made in our kitchen from local, seasonal produce.

The shed is a hive of activity year round – see our menu and what’s on below.

Willie Smith's Apple Shed is a ciderhouse, distillery, eatery and live music venue only 30 minutes drive from Hobart, in the Huon Valley, Tasmania, Australia


Quality Produce

Our menu is crafted with produce from local providers, meaning it’s quality, delicious and showcases the best of southern Tasmania. If salmon from the purest water on earth, or cheese made from the happiest sheep you’ve ever seen, sounds like something you’d enjoy, make sure you pay us a visit.

See our Contact page for Booking link.

** A reminder we are closed form the 14th to the 18th July for our annual festival.

Our Still

We produce an aged apple brandy from our still, in the same style as Calvados. We also produce a lighter apple spirit, Charles Oates Apple Blanco, a delicately flavoured spirit which you can learn more about below.

Apple Museum

Living history

Take a tour through the Apple Museum and learn about the rise, fall and recovery of the once infamous ‘Apple Isle’ of Tasmania and the Huon Valley, which was at its heart.

The self-guided tour takes around 20 minutes to complete, with many relics from the past and storyboards to guide you through. Our infamous apple wall contains over 390 varieties of apples – it’s definitely worth a gander!



Join the family

Our heirloom apples are grown, juiced, fermented, and bottled here, on our farm.

As a Cider Club member, the pick of these ciders are delivered, twice a year, straight from our farm to you.

You’ll discover a mix of member-exclusive and heritage release ciders, to drink and celebrate (yes, they’re that good) with your friends and family.

We’ll also throw in 15% off our cider and spirits online, free shipping, and invites to the odd dinner or two.
