Established in 2005, Festival of Voices has earned its reputation as Australia’s pre-eminent choral music festival. Singers from all over the world gather in Tasmania to perform, teach, learn, listen and connect, and where audiences are encouraged to participate and find their voices.
From the burning of a 15 meter tall wicker man called “Big Willie” to bonfire Saturday and singing to apple trees to bless next years crops, this festival is sure to have something for everybody. Be sure to make the most of local produce and check out some of the many great food options available.
Throughout the week distilleries will be opening their doors to host behind-the-scenes tours to meet the distillers in person, provide access to unreleased whiskies, and offer dining opportunities where distilleries (both old and new) will recount the successes, challenges and events that have shaped who they are today.
