Something happened in the last ten years to make Hobart a destination people actually want to come to for a Winter escape. Even Tasmanians would look at their feet and apologize for our Winter’s but all that has changed. There’s no doubt that events like Dark Mofo, Huon Valley Mid-Winter Festival and Festival of Voices have helped kick off this phenomenon. More and more each year are coming down to Hobart to embrace our Winter and partake in mid-year celebrations. Now we tend to puff out our chests and brag about these unique events where we get to go out, drink our whiskey and pinot noir while toasting S’mores around an open fire.
Hobart is actually the second driest city in Australia which makes for beautifully crisp, clear Winter days. If you are thinking about coming to Hobart, these festivals would make a stunning backdrop or a touch of atmosphere for your event.
