Events in Tasmania

When planning your Tasmanian holiday make sure to allow enough time to experience some of the fantastic local events and markets. Just remember that some of these events can lead to huge demand for accommodation and car hire – so if you are travelling during a key event make sure to book well in advance.

PLEASE NOTE: Events are subject to change/cancellation due to COVID-19. Updates will be made upon receiving information from the event organisers and the Australian Government.


The 2021 Tasmanian Whisky Week will take place from Monday 9th – Sunday 15th August, with industry events held across seven days in Tasmanian distilleries, bars, barns, stables, restaurants and hotels.

Throughout the week distilleries will be opening their doors to host behind-the-scenes tours to meet the distillers in person, provide access to unreleased whiskies, and offer dining opportunities where distilleries (both old and new) will recount the successes, challenges and events that have shaped who they are today.
