Travel to Tasmania and Embrace the cold, don’t escape it

Tasmania calls on mainlanders to lose their inhibitions and experience Tasmania when the locals feast harder, dance longer, and embrace the very wilderness that defines them. Whether it’s the almighty roar of a pagan bonfire, the hiss of a lakeside sauna, the beautiful mess of a seafood feast or the throb of a festival stage, Tasmania in winter is anything but chill.

Why Winter is Tasmania’s best-kept secret

A trip to Tasmania in winter is the perfect antidote to escaping your everyday life where mad moments of inspiration await. Let go of your reservations, experience incredible adventures, crazy meals and wild reveries. Head over to Tassie to sample the island’s unique creative spirit, luxury hotels such as Saffire Freycinet, and stunning nature and wilderness like nowhere else.

Tourism Tasmania CEO John Fitzgerald said, “Some people see winter as a time to hibernate and wait for the cooler season to end. We’re inviting Australians to get off the couch and embrace a wintery holiday in Tasmania. Other parts of Australia might endure winter, but Tasmanians have a different way of doing thing. We embrace the season like nowhere else – winter is when we thrive. 

Winter is Tasmania’s best-kept secret – a time when the island comes alive.

Sarah Island lantern tour

The night time World Heritage Cruise is only for the brave. Tales of fear and dread are brought to life on this dimly lit, blustery island with a dark convict history. Lashings of local whisky, mulled wine and other warm morsels keep the shivers at bay.
