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.
Celebrating Tasmania’s deep and wide connections to the world. Ten Days on the Island is Tasmania’s statewide arts festival, with something for everyone. The Festival is a wild and welcoming carnival of creativity, a confident celebration of our unique identity and our diverse island home.
Ten Days has a deep respect for the arts in regional Tasmania and a clear commitment to Tasmanian artists. We know that magic happens in far-flung places. Since the first Festival in 2001 we have proudly showcased Tasmania’s finest artists alongside the world’s best. And our 10th festival in March 2019 will once again provide the stage for a stunning array of home-grown and international artists.
So as March 2019 approaches, get ready for a magnificent program of art packed with heart and imagination – right across Tasmania.

The International Mural Fest is a truly unique art competition held annually in Sheffield – the ‘Town of Murals’, in Tasmania, Australia. Commencing Easter Sunday every year, Mural Fest is so successful that similar events are now happening interstate and overseas.
Each year, nine artists compete in a public ‘paint off’ from Easter Sunday to the following Saturday. Each artist must complete a 2100mm x 4800mm mural, using the same poem as their mural’s central theme and inspiration. Each year a new poem is selected, meaning no two Mural Fests are ever the same.
The competition is conducted in Mural Park – Sheffield’s very own outdoor art gallery in the heart of Tasmania’s Cradle Mountain touring region.
Mural Fest tests artistic skill, endurance and tenacity: artists are subjected to public scrutiny, time constraints and sometimes unpredictable Tasmanian weather!
International Mural Fest : 21 - 27 April 2019
To book your travel and accommodation during the International Mural Fest, please contact us via email firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 1300 827 822.
Targa Australia run the world's largest, longest and hardest tarmac rally event - Targa Tasmania. The concept of the Targa is drawn directly from the best features of the Targa Florio, Mille Miglia, the Coupe des Alpes and the Tour de Corse. However, Targa Tasmania is not a slow motion re-run; it is a genuine "red-blooded" motorsport competition that travels over 2000kms with almost 40 competitive stages on closed roads for the true motoring enthusiast, catering for up to 300 selected cars approved by invitation.
To secure your accommodation for Targa 2019, please contact our Groups Coordinator via email at email@example.com or by calling 1300 827 822.
