Tasmania easily has one of Australia's most diverse landscapes, plus it's a haven for the unconventional. Its heritage-listed wilderness, excellent pinot noir, epic art festivals and, of course, the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) all make the tiny island state a pretty unique place — and in winter even more so. With snow-capped mountains, glacial lakes and long starry nights, Tassie experiences winter more intensely than any other state. Plus, the season brings a calendar of epic events. So, with winter just on the horizon, we've tracked down some essential experiences to have down south — from the most soul-stirring winter adventures to the toastiest stays.
Let us guide you through the island's wildest landscapes and give you insight into how the locals revel in the cold. Walk through ancient rainforests and rugged peaks, visit some stellar cellar doors and cutting-edge dining experiences and swim nude on the winter solstice during Australia's most sinister festival — Dark Mofo. Tasmania has winter enrichment in spades. You really have no reason to hibernate this year.
