Huon Valley Mid Winter Festival - Natalie Mendham

The Off Season is calling

Let your inhibitions drop with the mercury, and discover all the ways to switch on this Off Season. Whether it’s the almighty roar of a pagan bonfire, the hiss of a lakeside sauna, or the throb of a festival stage, Tasmania in winter is anything but chill.

What is the Off Season?

Any time of the year is a fine time to visit Tasmania, but we think winter is extra special. The Off Season is winter for real, a time to gather around blazing log fires and slow-cooked feasts, to play in snow and plunge into festivals, to toast the warmth with Tassie wine and whisky. Dance around bonfires. Talk long into the night. Dream deeply.

Local businesses celebrate the Off Season with winter-only specials and rare experiences for travellers, so keep an eye out for the Off Season logo – a sign that something special awaits.
