apple-shed

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

Kitchen

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.

Please email us at appleshed@williesmiths.com.au to book a table, or for same day bookings or to discuss options call us on (03) 6266 4345 ext. 3

Distillery

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.

Huon Valley Cider & Sail

Enjoy a quintessential  Valley day out at two of the Huon’s much-loved destinations – lunch with us at the Shed, before a cruise aboard the 1930’s Danish ketch “Yukon” on the beautiful Huon River.

Just 25 minutes south of Hobart, you’ll arrive at our old apple packing shed where you’ll enjoy a feast of local Valley produce, followed by a slice of our famous apple pie.

Then drive just 10 minutes down the road to Franklin, on the banks of the Huon River. Here you’ll board the Yukon’ the two-masted sailing vessel for the afternoon’s Calm Water Cruise departing from and returning to, the Franklin Marina.

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!

 

Events

Sunday Sessions

Sundays at the Apple Shed are all about good food, live bands and delicious beverages. Grab a table outside and enjoy the sunshine, or keep warm on those cold winter nights inside the shed while making the most of the second day of the weekend!
