Tourism Tasmania has revealed a line-up of winter events to entice mainlanders to head south for the colder months.
Dark Mofo, which will run from 16-22 June has large scale public art, food, music, fire, light and noise. Some of the signature events include the nude solstice swim as well as the stunning winter feast.
Next on the calendar is the Festival of Voices from 30 June to 11 July. There are choral masterclasses as well as a big singalong around a roaring bonfire.
In the later months of winter, the Tasmanian Whisky Week runs from 9-15 August. It’s the best place to sample some of the local whiskies, many of which are award-winning.
And finally, in September, the Junction Arts Festival celebrates its tenth birthday. Warm up by the fire as top chefs prepare a campfire feast and experience theatre and dance productions from Tasdance, Stompin and Mudlark in venues such as a car park, abandoned buildings and old churches.
