Southern Tasmania is set to ‘paint the town red’ this winter, with the popular Winter Feast returning alongside other events like the Festival of Voices and Beaker Street.

The annual celebration kicked off on June 10th and will run until the end of the month, with businesses across the region getting involved by lighting up red.


“We have really come to embrace both the weather and the range of events on offer during winter,” Destination Southern Tasmania CEO Alex Heroys said.

“We expect that people from all over the state will be keen to get involved, as well as thousands of interstate visitors.”
