The off season in Tasmania can be the ‘on season’ for discovering new experiences, new adventures and new places. From the magic nights of Dark Mofo to solstice swims in icy rivers and long days legging it along the Tamar Valley Wine Trail, winter in Tasmania lets you see the area with fresh eyes. So come for the lazy feasts, cosy pubs and pulse-pounding festivals, and stay for the friendly vibes and otherworldly starscapes. Winter in Tasmania is more than a season – it’s an experience.
Off season in Tasmania is something special, as sleepy bonfires, warming whisky and cosy pubs beckon you to stop rushing and start recharging, while icy solstice swims in the River Derwent and the music of Dark Mofo offer one-of-a-kind wake-me-ups.
Winter in Tasmania is an experience. A day’s itinerary may include nothing more than snowy strolls, truffle hunting and pinot-tasting – or it might include slaloming at Ben Lomond, hitting the whisky trail or camping beneath the Aurora Borealis.
Warming up in Tassie is as easy as following the procession of torches at The Burning, lazing around a bonfire at the Festival of Voices, indulging in some firepit BBQ at Waterton Hall or unwinding in a pub with a glass of cider by the fireplace.
Locals aren’t put off by winter in Tasmania; they live for it. Winter is a time of early-morning adventures and late-night festivals, when the dress code is Tassie Tuxedos and the Southern Lights burn brightly. Don’t run from the wind – run with it.
From masterclasses where you can make your own whisky to cosy pubs where you can choose your tipple by a roaring fire, Tassie puts a fire in your belly. So wander the wine trail and dive into the distilleries; winter is a time of exploration.
