On January 21, 2015 Federal Minister for the Environment Greg Hunt and the Tasmanian Premier Will Hodgman officially opened the latest addition to the Hobart waterfront, the Brooke Street Pier.
The official launch signalled an exciting new chapter in the Huon story as the Pier is home to our first ever retail space, the Reserve Selection concept store. As well as stocking our Reserve Selection range the concept store is a place where tourists and locals alike can visit to enjoy tastings from our Reserve Selection range and speak with the Huon team to learn more about everything we do from farming to processing, to smoking and curing.
The Brooke Street Pier is a floating transport terminal which means it rises and falls with the tide and serves primarily as the departure point for a variety of Hobart ferry tours and transport to the MONA Museum. It is a first in Australia and innovative by global standards, designed to become an icon on the much loved Hobart waterfront.
The pier has aimed to replicate the rich trading history of the waterfront and there is a wide range of Tasmania’s best producers included alongside our store. When you depart the ferry after a long day exploring southern Tasmania what better way is there to unwind than with local wines from Domaine Simha, cheese from Grandvewe and Huon salmon?
