Eating Out

Fredericks @ Ormiston House


1 The Esplanade, Strahan


Refined dining using locally sourced ingredients.

Leslie and I moved from Australia to Strahan mid-August 2015 to open our first Tasmanian venture Bushman’s, which we still own and operate opposite the cruise centre. We have always been on the lookout for other opportunities here in Strahan and after befriending Rose and Terry, the owners of the majestic Ormiston House, discussions were had to resurrect Fredericks after being dormant for more than a decade.

Our vision for Frederick’s is simple - refined dining, locally sourced ingredients, Tasmanian.

We have reinstated the kitchen garden out back where we grow organic herbs, micro salads, heirloom vegetables and selected native plants – garden to plate. Dean Hanson our butcher supplies beef and lamb directly from his property in Sassafras. Peter and Una Rockliff (Petuna) supply salmon directly from Macquarie Harbour and wild caught fish from the Southern Ocean.

Torsten Schwoch fills our tanks with live crays from the pristine waters of the West Coast. We forage native plants from land and sea-sourced from Macquarie Heads, Henty Dunes, Trial Harbour and surrounding areas.

Our premium wine list, 100% Tasmanian has been specially selected to showcase the best of the best with the assistance of Darren McKenna from David Johnstone and Associates.
