Winter Events in Hobart and Southern Tasmania

Many might think winter is a time to huddle up and stay in, but here in Southern Tasmania it’s the time to experience all things weird and wonderful. We rug up, get out into the refreshing winter air, and immerse ourselves in all that’s happening throughout the region. Now’s the time to get your calendars out and save the date. Our Hobart winter events calendar is just starting to fire up.
