Now in its ninth year, Dark Mofo boasts an eclectic lineup of music, art, entertainment, and food, while delving deep into ancient winter rituals. The event will be held in Hobart from 8 - 22 June. 

A first timer? Get started by eating through the Winter Feast on Hobart’s waterfront, experience the Ogoh-Ogoh parade, or, if you dare, participate in the Nude Solstice Swim. Of course, each year the festival gets bigger and bolder, so be sure to stay tuned for the latest on Dark Mofo’s offering.

If Dark Mofo isn’t quite your flavour, try Tasmanian Whisky Week instead. It celebrates the best of Tasmania’s distilleries, their spirits, and, of course, whisky. This year more than 30 distilleries will feature over 15 events. Fancy yourself a whisky connoisseur? Be sure to attend the “Meet the Maker” sessions and meet distillers themselves, while enjoying a sip or two.
