Experience the magic of winter in Tasmania

With winter just around the corner, Tasmania is the place to be. You can experience the winter solstice at Dark Mofo, a dumping of snow at Cradle Mountain, vibrant colours of the Southern Lights or unleash your inner singer at the Festival of Voices.

Celebrate the darkness

Imagine rugging up to celebrate the southern hemisphere’s winter solstice at Mona’s midwinter festival, Dark Mofo. With public art, live music and food, you can immerse yourself in the festivities, including the indulgent Winter Feast on Hobart’s waterfront and the colourful parade and burning of the Ogoh-Ogoh.

Picture yourself surrounded by snow at Cradle Mountain, one of the most spectacular places in Tasmania. You'll be able to spot wildlife in their natural habitat or take a scenic walk around Lake St Clair National Park, and members can save when staying at Cradle Mountain Hotel. Just make sure to check the weather forecast and travel prepared for the wet and icy conditions.

Spot the Southern Lights

If you’ve got a passion for photography or an appreciation for nature, the captivating Southern Lights, also refereed to as the Aurora Australis are an irresistible sight worth waking up for at any hour. The lights paint the night sky with a palette of vibrant colours and are best observed on clear nights. Whether you find yourself standing on a remote coastline or nestled within the wilderness, gazing up at the Southern Lights in Tasmania is an inspiring experience that will leave you in awe.
