What to do in Hobart

It may be small compared to its mainland counterparts, but Hobart waved goodbye to its sleepy reputation decades ago.

Today, this trendy capital is home to some of the country's most anticipated festivals and events – and there's something on no matter the season. Find out the best time to plan your trip to Tassie with our guide to what's on in Hobart.

Royal Hobart show

The oldest agricultural festival in Australia, The Royal Hobart Show has been bringing the country to the city since 1822.

Not just a celebration of local livestock, this four-day festival features more than 100 free activities, along with carnival rides, food stalls, live music and more.

Tasmanian whisky week

An ideal way to bid farewell to winter, this week-long whisky festival rings in spring with seven days of distillery tours and events, from behind-the-scenes tastings to masterclasses. And with events taking place state wide, you can sample Tassie's famous tipples in Hobart and beyond.
