How the Long Lunch Tour Co started

The Long Lunch Tour Co History began quite a while ago now. I have always enjoyed showing people the marvels of life and what I see and how I perceive it. I think everyone see’s life from a different angle and I’d like to show you mine.

My name is Bradley Bowden, I grew up on Kangaroo Island in S.A and have been in the Tourism industry for over 20 years now. I have a huge passion for food, wine and unique experiences. From restaurants to wineries, secluded beaches and the mountains, I love any opportunity to expose people to the delights our great country has to offer.

I love guiding. I ran the Activities Department at Freycinet Lodge in Tasmania for years, specialising in cultural and environmental interpretation including food and wine tasting. Also I’ve worked for iconic Australian wineries like Freycinet Vineyard, Leeuwin Estate in both Cellar Door and Winery just to name drop a few. Understanding the dynamics of the Winery, Cellar Door and Restaurant plus the role of the tour guide, I know we can show everyone a first class experience in Tasmania to remember for years to come.

The main source of my inspiration is my wife Verina, a successful entrepreneur who has a business background in Margaret River, she thrives in creating experiences for you. Having learnt from the best Viticulturists’, 5 Star Accommodation owners and Tourism specialists, Verina knows fun and quality through and through. A great palate and smile, she loves making sure you enjoy every second of your time with us.

Between the two of us and the fabulous business community in Tasmania we will create a buzz in the Tasmanian and Australian tourism industry creating a benchmark in “Gastronomical Tourism”. The Long Lunch Tour Wine and Food Tour Co’s site opens up a whole new portal for anyone who loves, lives and breathes life and all the delicacies it has to offer.

Behind every bend in the road and rolling hill is a great story waiting to be told. The rich cultural history of the regions we visit can be found at every stop. The flavours, smells and textures you experience in Tasmania are second to none. The freshness of the seafood and crisp flavours of the wines you will try are testament to how great this state of Tasmania is.

Experience the joys of a perfect food and wine pairing that brings alive the tastebuds and activates the palate. Learn a little more about how to age, drink and explore wine. Unearth the secrets that make the wine in the vineyard taste so good. Either way, no matter how you wish to enjoy your day, it will go down as one of your best day’s yet!

Loving Life and all the delicacies it has to offer is our Ethos.
