Tasmania are a wonderland of beautiful scenery with loads of fresh produces. Renowned for its natural wonder, it also boast one of the the world cleanest air. With all these fresh local produce, what's the top 5 must try?

1. Scallop pies - one of Tasmania famous and favourite, the curried bechamel scallop pie are sold across Tasmania. What's in it: a buttery pastry with fresh scallops (the more the better), curry + bechamel sauce. Where: 1. Mures Upper Deck, Victoria Dock; 2. Harbour Lights Cafe, 29 Morrison St.; 3. Gingerbreadhouse Bakery Cafe, Dover Centre, Main Road, Dover (there are lots of others places selling the Scallop pies); Cost: average $6 each.

2. White cherries - they taste sweeter than your normal red cherries and texture are firmer. Get some at the Salamanca Market or try to pick them yourself at Sorell Farm. Where: Sorell Fruit Farm; 174 Pawleena Rd. Cost: $12/tub at Sorell farm or $5/small bag at Salamanca market. Note: the farm is close during Winter (ie: Jun-Sep)

3. Oysters - Oysters are grown around the coasts of Tasmania. Fresh, sweet and succulent, the Tasmania oysters are one of the fresh local seafood must try in Tasmania. Where: try Freycinet Marine Farm (off Coles Bay Road, Coles Bay). Cost: $15 to $20 per tray.

4. Salmon - Someone once described Salmon as a beautiful food to eat. They are one of the best fish to include in your diet, and you can have them raw, smoked, grilled and prepared in many other ways.
