Drysdale Butchery Training Facility


The Drysdale Butchery Training Facility is located at the Royal Hobart Show Grounds in Glenorchy, just a short 15 minute drive from the Hobart CBD.

Providing a specialist training program for apprentice butchers, our Glenorchy facility offers you the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in a simulated butcher’s workshop, learning the traditional methods of boning, marinating, curing, smoking and aging meat, as well as meat hygiene, storage and safety, ordering, knife skills, and customer service skills.

Our small classes are led by two full-time teachers who are industry professionals dedicated to the butchery sector, and passionate about sharing their skills and knowledge with the next generation of butchers.

The Drysdale Butchery Training Facility is equipped with a learning space for theory and individual study, as well as a simulated workplace complete with processing machinery, tables, carts, refrigerators and a meat smoker, where you’ll have the opportunity to learn alongside other apprentices from around the state, and gain the skills and knowledge you need to work in the retail butchery or meat processing sector.

For apprentice butchers traveling to Hobart for training, the Drysdale Butchery Training Facility is conveniently located close to accommodation facilities, supermarkets and cafes.
