Unforgettable winter experiences on offer in Tasmania

From walking wombats to organising oysters, there’s an exciting and unique winter experience in Tasmania to delight every visitor.

As part of this year’s Off Season campaign, Tourism Tasmania has launched a playful new initiative, Odd Jobs, encouraging Australians to take a break from their day jobs for a one-of-a-kind Tasmanian Odd Job experience this winter.

Tourism Tasmania acting CEO, Vanessa Pinto, said for many holiday goers, Tasmanian winters offer the perfect opportunity to escape the stress and routine of everyday life and enjoy a unique experience.

“These Odd Job volunteering experiences are fun, light-hearted opportunities that respond to issues of work-life balance and burnout that many Australians are feeling,” Ms Pinto said.

“The tongue-in-cheek initiative is exactly what Tasmania has become known for in campaigns, and we know it is effective because it creates conversations about the importance of taking a break this winter and building awareness that Tasmania’s Off Season is the perfect space to do that.”

Tourism Tasmania has collaborated with 10 tourism operators across the state to offer Odd Jobs that explore some of our island’s most wild, weird and wonderful workplaces.

Ms Pinto said we know this winter will be challenging for some tourism and hospitality operators, which is why it’s important to continue investing in winter marketing initiatives to drive visitors to the state and support our regions during the quieter months.

Between 17 June - 8 July 2024, Tourism Tasmania’s Odd Jobs will begin accepting applications. Australians can apply to one of the 10 Odd Jobs via the Discover Tasmania website.

Successful applicants will be able to ditch the ordinary and have their travel expenses covered to do the Odd Job and receive a selection of the finest Tasmanian produce or goods, hand-picked by their Odd Job host for the fruits of their labour.
