4. COMFORT FOOD

The three P’s - pizza, popcorn and pasta are as good as a big hug in cooler weather, that’s why they call it comfort food! Winter gives you the opportunity to visit that restaurant you've been meaning to try.

We all know that AFL is a favourite winter sport, but other sports on the winter calendar include netball and soccer. There is something fun about watching teams battle it out for the win. If there is mud, then it’s a bonus! Go the TASSIE HAWKS!

9. DRAMATIC SUNSETS

In the Tasmanian winter, an extra drizzle of rain brings with it bright sunsets. This is because of the clean air and the height that the sun sets. Grab a blanket and some friends and view the beauty of the natural world, we hear it even makes Launceston's skyline look a bit special, too!
