Tips and tricks for visiting Hobart

It is quite possible to experience all 4 seasons in a single day in Tasmania. Hence, remember to carry a warm jacket no matter when you travel. Do not expect to get good network coverage on your mobiles through many parts of the state. Keep in mind that many eateries close early and only take reservations well ahead of time, so plan ahead on your meal times and venues as far as possible. Do not underestimate the Tasmanian wilderness. Try not to hike alone, carry an emergency kit and plenty of water on your outdoor trips. Also carry a mosquito repellent.

Tasmania hosts several events and festivals almost round-the-year, so do check if there is one happening when you are visiting. Some of the better known festivals include Taste of Tasmania in Hobart around December – January, Chocolate Winterfest at Latrobe in August, Tasmanian Craft Fair at Deloraine in November, Blooming Tasmanian Flower and Garden Festival at Launceston in September, MONA FOMA and Dark MOFO at Hobart in January and June respectively, and the Tasmania Whisky Week held across the state in August.
