Visit Tasmania in The Off Season

The Off Season is calling. 

In Tassie we do things a little differently – including winter…


The Off Season is our Tasmanian winter. It is a time to gather around blazing hot fires, meet fellow singers in the Festival Singers Lounge, build up your repertoire through workshops, sip local brews and feast on delicious dishes – there is plenty to do and explore while you enjoy the festival.

We’ve partnered with Tourism Tasmania to share just a few highlights:


Frogmore Creek – Cambridge and Hobart

A warm and welcoming cellar door is never far away in Tassie, and winter is the season when many are at their cosiest. Frogmore Creek Cellar Door and Restaurant is situated in the produce-rich Coal River Valley wine region; 20 minutes from Hobart’s CBD. Enjoy breathtaking views by the fire or visit their city lounge on the Hobart waterfront.

Find Frogmore Wines at most of our events, especially Wine Choir and The Big Sing Bonfire

Evolve Spirits Bar – Hobart

Learn about the emergence of premium distilling in Tasmania and sample many award-winning local spirits (including festival partner Lawrenny) that are showcased at the luxurious wharf side location.  A sophisticated hospitality experience awaits within the MACq 01 Hotel building.

Drop in after Katie Noonan’s Ave (Australian Vocal Ensemble).

Eat The Wild – Hobart

Enjoy a curated food and beverage adventure at the edge of the world. Offering intimate, small day tours departing from Hobart your experience guide and chef will take you to the uncovered places only locals know about. Expect a lunch of local dishes, rich red wine and whisky tastings along the way.

What an awesome add-on for any visiting choir!

Port Arthur Market

The Tasman Peninsula and its surroundings are home to incredible creatives and producers. The Maker’s Market will be full of local food, arts, wine & craft on Saturday 11th of July. Come and meet some of the region’s best artisans and producers.

With floor to ceiling windows that make you feel like you are part of the fishing fleets, match your Festival of Voices celebrations to their very own Festival of Oysters — serving up the very best of fresh Tasmanian oysters.
