Text that says what is the off season

The Off Season is Tasmania's winter playground.

Any time of year is a fine time to explore Tasmania, but the Off Season is when things get wild, weird and wonderful. It’s a time to gather around blazing log fires and slow-cooked feasts; to plunge into festivals and dance wildly; to talk long into the night and dream deeply. Go 'off' in your own way this winter. The Off Season is open to just about anything.

Things to do

This winter, dive into nature and come up smiling. Stoke your creative fires and try something new that stirs your soul. Let your inhibitions drop with the mercury, or just get cosy. This is winter, for real.

What's on offer this off season?

Businesses across Tasmania join the Off Season festivities with inspiring offers and rare experiences for winter wanderers – things to do, places to stay and good things to eat and drink. Come inside and see what's cooking.
