Scorchers by the River

At Orford the highway takes a takes a sharp turn, crosses the bridge and heads happily north towards the sun along Tasmania’s east coast. At such an obvious spot for a break, Scorchers has always been a favourite with travellers. Its reputation has grown over the years, and it’s now something of a foodie destination in itself. Excellent espresso coffee and crispy pizza from the wood-fired oven are complemented by a selection of Tasmanian wines by the glass. A relaxed interlude on the covered terrace enjoying a local wild scallop and hot-smoked salmon pizza with a cappuccino will have you in just the right mood to head on up the highway.
