Only 2 days to go until the first day of winter here in Tasmania and the cold weather has now arrived. We tend to hibernate a little over winter however there are many events that are happening in Tasmania at this time of year.
Lumina, a winter of festivals started on April 27 this year and runs for 4 months. The festival celebrates the arts, culture, food and wine and also sport.
