This Off Season, reconnect with wildlife, nature and your taste buds as you explore the breathtaking beauty of Tasmania. Head to Australia’s only island state and cruise the Gordon River, stroll the Bay of Fires or sip a glass of Tassie’s finest whisky. Whether hiking around Cradle Mountain or watching a Wineglass Bay sunrise, there’s something for everyone in Tasmania. Tasmania’s natural beauty is captivating, its cultural experiences are diverse, and its food and drink offering is enviable. The capital city of Hobart is home to one of the world’s most intriguing art galleries as well as a fascinating convict history.
Any time of the year is a fine time to visit Tasmania, but winter is extra special. Winter turns parts of the island into a snowy wonderland and this is a great time for festivals and events like Dark Mofo or for curling up by the fire with a glass of local whisky.
