We hope you have reached out and enjoyed one or more of the fine Tasmania gins and whisky on the Icons of Tasmania site.

But the Icons of Tasmania has so much more to offer:
Need some of Tasmania’s best wines? Try the Pinot Noirs Stefano Lubiana Wines; Mewstone Wines, Rieslings Wellington Wolfe, Chardonnay Pooley Wines; Stefano Lubiana Wines, aromatic reds Marions Vineyard and sparkling wines Bellebonne for which Tasmania’s cool climate is perfectly suited.

Tasmania is famous for its pure, flavoursome foods like these iconic truffles, honey products and hazelnuts.

And did I mention the world-class chefs working with these ingredients? Why not dine at Black Cow Bistro, famous for its steaks, Mudbar, famous for its Asian influenced cuisine and Clarendon Arms for country cuisine in an historic inn.

And there are more experiences, accommodation, products and services, to be found at Icons of Tasmania

Viewers are loving the Stories of Tasmania and many are voting for their Top Three Picks, with some surprises in their choices compared to the judges’ verdict.

Come see who wins at our Awards event on Saturday 29 May (5.30-7pm) at Sir Stanley Burbury Theatre, UTAS campus, Sandy Bay Hobart. Tickets here.


Here’s three more online films we’d recommend!


In the mood for romance in an exotic setting? Photograph sets up a new twist on the eternal story of star crossed lovers – family expectation, caste, social standing and modern versus traditional all come into play – with exotic India as the backdrop. If you loved The Lunchbox, director Rikesh Batra, won’t disappoint.


We all grieve for a young person’s life taken too soon but how painful is it when a young family man, who is one of the most successful political and community-driven young men in Sydney, is told he has incurable cancer and has two babes in arms and a loving wife. Jez: A Story For Life follows Jeremy (Jez) Spinak as he sets out to document for his children what drove him, what he cared for. Documentary film making at its finest.


Jailbreak Pact is set in Chile in the dying days of dictator Pinochet’s rule, when he is trying to rid himself of jailed dissidents. This true story follows political prisoner Leon Vargas (Benjamín Vicuña) and fellow inmates at the Santiago Prisión de la Ciudad as they scratch desperately at bricks, rock and packed dirt with tiny hand tools to dig a 60m tunnel under the prison walls. A cliff hanger and a testament to courage and determination.
