Welcome to Northern Exposure and to a northern Tasmanian winter.
There's no denying, winter has arrived in Launceston. This is a time of short days, frosty mornings and a jam-packed events calendar that will keep you out of hibernation.
In fact, if you thought winter meant things slowing down, think again. With theatre performances, whisky week and local festivals there's plenty to keep you busy
In this edition we're shining a light on some of the upcoming activities you can find throughout the city and beyond. One of our favourites is the Tassie Scallop Fiesta (page 7) where the Tasmanian scallop is front and centre in cooking demonstrations, innovative dishes and hands-on workshops.
Now is also the time to book tickets to the city's Whisky Week activities (page 6) that put our whisky distilleries front and centre.
With events designed to showcase the complexities of local whisky, this is the best time to learn about what makes Tasmanian whisky so renowned.
While the weather may be less predictable, the city is full of energy and the Council are happy to update residents on the many things that are happening around town, from Churchill Park's redevelopment to the new cultural advisory committee.
So what are you waiting for? It may be cold but now is the time to get out and enjoy those expansive blue skies that punctuate winter in Launceston.
We hope you enjoy this edition of Northern Exposure.
