Fly to Hobart from $41

Fly or float

You can fly from Sydney to Hobart in 115 minutes (from Melbourne, the flight's even shorter). Or hop on the Spirit of Tasmania in Melbourne and bring your car.

Explore the island

Don't limit yourself to Tasmania's cities - some of the greatest winter experiences lie on the coasts, mountains and forests. Renting a car or booking a tour will help you dive in.

Rug up and get down

Be prepared for cold weather and bright winter sunlight. But remember to pack your dancing shoes, and don’t be surprised if you find yourself shedding a layer or two as the celebrations kick off.

“No longer do we escape the winter – we welcome it with open arms spread above fire-pits, drinking mulled wines and gins and whiskies from island producers we know by name.”
