The Salamanca Wharf Hotel is located in the middle of most of the major events, so it’s the perfect place to stay during the festival.

More about Dark Mofo

Dark Mofo is a festival of art and music, celebrating cold and dark. The Dark Mofo Winter Feast draws on age-old traditions of winter solstice celebrations and savours the core of these: family and community; feasting and produce; singing and music; subversion and masquerade; rebirth and renewal; fire and life.

Dark Mofo 2018 will feature a number of large-scale public artworks; a Winter Feast on the waterfront  as well as the usual unusual assortment of music, theatre, performance and exhibitions. 

It all builds up to a celebration of the longest night, finishing with the annual Nude Solstice Swim – which attracted more than 700 people into the chilly River Derwent last year – at sunrise on June 22.

The 2018 Dark Mofo events program runs over 2 weekends, so there are plenty of opportunities to travel to Hobart for a weekend getaway. Or, consider staying in Tasmania for longer and venture further afield once you have experienced Dark Mofo. Either way, the Salamanca Wharf Hotel offers apartment accommodation that is centrally located on the Hobart waterfront, so you will be staying in the middle of all the festival action.
