Breathtaking colours, joy filled festivals, natural getaways, and wildlife encounters; the Tasmanian “off-season” delivers some of the most spectacular experiences.
As the colder months begin creeping in, many instinctively begin hiding away or finding ways to escape the winter. For Tasmania however, this is a time of the year we embrace, with many uniquely special experiences emerging that capture a feeling rarely found anywhere else but here. Experiences such as the “Turning of the Fagus”, a natural spectacle of vibrant colour painted across our alpine regions or the iconic Dark Mofo winter festival our flagship cultural event that takes over Hobart throughout June.
Find below a small collection of the experiences that are exclusively on offer during this time of year.
