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.

International Mural Fest - Sheffield


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 : 01 - 07 September 2020

What’s On at the Theatre Royal

Theatre Royal Season 2020

Season 2020 is an exciting new chapter in the history of the Theatre Royal.  The theatre is unique because it’s very much a part of Tasmania’s rich history but it’s also a part of the island’s creative future. Its latest transformation, as part of the Hedberg, includes the opening of a new space – the Studio Theatre, complementing the existing historical Main Theatre.

There is a strong line-up of home-grown content in 2020 with Terrapin’s A Not So Traditional Story,  Archipelago Productions’ The Bleeding Tree featuring Marta Dusseldorp, Blue Cow’s The Appleton Ladies Potato Race, The Show Company Tasmania’s MAMMA MIA!, John X’s production of The Rocky Horror Show and Hobart’s youth dance company DRILL with Leviathan.

Audiences will also love works by exceptional performing arts companies from across the globe, the mainland and here in Tassie. Enjoy the classics with Animal Farm, Swan Lake, The Comedy of Errors, Nutcracker & Don Quixote and Carmen. Young people and families will be delighted with a range of production such as The Pied Piper, The Listies: ROFLSHALBOWCO, Beep, My Robot and Edward The Emu.

The Theatre Royal Box Office is open Monday to Friday from 9.00am – 5.00pm, or you can book online 24/7 –
