Taste of Tasmania

The greatest food festival to hit Tasmania, nay Australia, is back for another year, so prepare yourself and your stomach for a food extravaganza you’ll never forget!


Forget any food festival you’ve attended before, this will knock them all right out of the park. Located on Hobart’s stunning waterfront, Taste of Tasmania runs from 28th December – 3rd January. That’s 7 days of deliciousness. That’s 7 days of stuffing yourself silly. That’s 7 days of heaven!


Close to 70 stallholders will be offering festival goers the finest fruit, seafood, cheese, wine, beer and cider that the state produces and much, much more.


Taste of Tasmania also prides itself on all its events bar its New Years Eve event, being absolutely free. So whether you’ve got champagne tastebuds on a beer budget or champagne tastebuds on a champagne budget, you’ll be able to eat and drink your fill at this culinary delight of a festival.


If you do want to hit up their New Years Eve party, ticket prices start at $65 for general admission unseated and range between $75 and $100 for seated areas. You’ll be grooving long into the night with fab live music and be in a stellar spot to see the fireworks go off at midnight!


This is a busy time of year in Hobart, especially as the Sydney to Hobart yacht race is also on at the same time, so make sure you book your bed at Hobart Central YHA early, so you’re not stuck spending a fortune on accommodation elsewhere!
