THE WINTER IN TASMANIA

Spring is here but winter has been long, very cold and full of fun things to do. From Dark MOFO to all the amazing snow that had Hobartians freaking out. We keep pretty close tabs on all the things happening on social media, here is all the stuff you guys were showing off and interested in this winter.

 

DARK MOFO

Dark MOFO was back for it’s third year with huge public art exhibitions and some amazing performances. This year we saw Dark Park take over much of the waterfront area around Macquarie Wharf with some amzing displays including the huge fire organ and Bass Bath.

 

LOTS OF SNOW

With one of the coldest winters on record we got an amazing amount of snow all around the state. From Hobart to Cradle Mountain there were plenty of places to get out and make a few snow angels. Hobart was also lucky enough to get a once in a generation dumping with snow down to sea level.

We also saw a huge amount of snow at Ben Lomond and Mt Field offering plenty of opportunities for skiers and snow boarders to get out and explore the landscape in a different way.

 

WINTER AURORA

We have had a number of big Auroras this winter that sent our local photography community scrambling for their gear and the car keys. A number of photographers were lucky enough to grab some amazing shots with breaks in the weather.
