Located at each of the Hobart, Launceston and Devonport campuses, the Drysdale Centre of Excellence restaurants are the training ground for Tasmania’s future chefs and hospitality staff.
As a patron, you’ll be an important part of the learning experience as the next generation of Tasmania’s qualified service personnel gain hands-on training under the supervision of our professional teaching staff. It’s a unique way to experience the state’s booming Hospitality and Tourism industries and gain an insight into what the future holds, as well as provide local support to our up-and-coming hospitality professionals and regional producers.
