Quamby is a beautiful historical homestead in a wonderful setting but why, in a State which prides itself of fresh produce, did breakfast consist of stale pastries, packet type cereal (Coco Pops?!), white bread for toast and worst of all pre packaged Kraft jams , peanut butter and vegemite? How about some local bread, local cheeses, local jams and honey and by the way some fresh fruit would have been nice. This seems to be the Australian way but surely Tassie could do better!
