Tamsin's Table: exploring Gippsland's Secret Garden

A day spent at Tamsin’s Table in south-west Gippsland, is like dropping in on the nurturing, food-loving country aunt you always wished you had.

Back in September, I had the great pleasure of realising a dream and spending a day at Tamsin's Table, a self-sufficient farm, creative retreat and foodie's paradise located in the lush green hills of west Gippsland.

Every weekend, owner Tamsin Carvan opens the doors of her beautiful hilltop farmhouse to a handful of visitors who come for a range of hands-on workshops and seasonal lunches.

Depending on the time of year you might spend the day baking bread, learning the art of floral arrangement, bottling the summer harvest, or just enjoying a languid lunch at Tamsin’s shared table (cooked by Tamsin with produce straight from her garden).

Or, like me, you might come for a watercolour painting class followed by a gorgeous shared lunch.

“People come here seeking something real,” explains Tamsin. “They value experiences over ‘stuff’. And they tend to love eating, too!”

I wrote about my day at Tamsin's in a feature for Australian Traveller magazine.
