Tassie Off Season 2024: Week 5

Across the island you will find countless offerings for experiences exclusive to the cooler months; because down here it is during the winter months that Tasmania truly shines.

We hope the offerings shared over the past few weeks have helped inspire your future events and demonstrated how events in Tasmania during winter are really something else.

Wild Winter Water Caves

Explore some of Tasmania’s wild and undeveloped caves with ‘Wild Cave Tours’.

Get off the beaten track with speleologists who share their passion and knowledge in the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage area of kooparoona niara/ Great Western Tiers and take in the magnificent natural settings of caves not normally seen by the public.

An experience enhanced by the wetter months with the caves coming alive as a water world where you might spot giant freshwater lobster, fish, and eel.
