It may seem strange for us to be talking about winter right now, but we want to give you time to plan so you don’t miss your chance to experience an event in Hobart this year!

We know there’s a misconception that Tassie is like the Antarctic in winter but we’re here to tell you that’s simply not true. Winter days in Hobart are filled with bright blue skies, cool days and very little rain. In fact, did you know that Hobart is the second driest capital city in Australia?

It may be a little cooler than most of Australia but that point of difference is what makes winter in Hobart so great. Over the years, Tasmanians have learnt how to embrace and celebrate the uniqueness of our home, and now we’re excited to share it with you all.

Ready to find out more about why Hobart is so special in winter? Then read on…

Winter Festivals
There is nothing more iconic to Tasmanians than our love of winter festivals. Our favourites to check out would have to be Dark Mofo and the Huon Valley Mid Winter Festival.

Social functions with a twist
– Enjoy outdoor pre-dinner drinks, canapes, and mulled cider on the forecourt of the Hotel. Add in some firepots and moody lighting for a welcome to be remembered
– Head to Hobart Brewing Co for a casual welcome reception with firepits and food trucks under the stars

Winter food
Tasmania is all about celebrating fresh and local produce and in winter this means hearty seasonal dishes that are designed to warm from the inside out. Best served family style with a side of mulled cider and wine.

The Fashion
Jeans & a puffer jacket (or as the locals say “Tassie Tuxedo”) – yep, that’s as Tasmanian as it comes. Add in some boots with a scarf and you’ve really nailed winter fashion in Hobart. Layering up has never been so much fun – your delegates will love the more casual dress code we promise.
