Each year Hobart transforms into a dark wonderland where the cold depths of winter are celebrated along with the state’s best food, wine and music.
Far from a local produce festival, Dark Mofo brings acts, art and theatre from around the world to celebrate individuality, creativity and expression in beautiful Hobart.
This year we invited some friends from Queensland to show them not only Battery Point’s best, but a little of what makes today’s Hobart so special. They were not disappointed with the new ‘David Walsh’ era town, nor its fine selection of artisanal delicacies. With so much on offer it’s hard to nail down just which events to attend so in the end we found ourselves at Mogwai, Sleeping Beauty, Dark Park & of course the Winter Feast on many occasions. Unfortunately I was too ‘in-the-moment’ ahem, to take any photos during Mogwai but I did manage a few at other occasions. See below.
With plenty of time to spare on the area’s year-round attractions and dining opportunities such as Dier Makr, Frank, Jackman & McRoss & MONA, we barely scratched the surface and left each of them planning their next Tasmanian adventure.
