Experience the Aurora in all its winter glory

Winter in Hobart is the perfect time to explore Tasmania's night sky, alive with vibrant stars and the ethereal Aurora Australis that projects hues of purple and green glows.

One of Hobart's leading hotels, The Tasman, a Luxury Collection Hotel, has just launched its "Skygazer'' Experience.

The new offering is led by Tasmanian photographer and Aurora chaser Luke O'Brien, who will offer participants an intimate photography lesson, showcasing the stunning features of the southern night sky - subject to local weather conditions.

The Aurora - often too subtle for the naked eye - , its celestial presence is best viewed through digital lens photography. Travellers will be rewarded for bracing the dropping mercury with a hot spiced apple cider and a Waverley Mills soft Merino wool scarf to rug up in.

'"Skygazer" experience inclusions are a night sky photography session with Tasmanian photographer Luke O'Brien; transfers to and from the locations selected by the photographer; spiced Tasmanian apple cider; Tasmanian Waverley Mills merino wool scarf and The Aurora Chaser's Handbook for guests to take home as a keepsake.

Comprising three linked buildings - Heritage, Art Deco, and a new contemporary design wing - The Tasman is the first Luxury Collection hotel in Australia.

For an overnight stay at The Tasman, rooms start from $350 per room per night.
