Unique Venues and Unmatched Service

Events

Highly personalized events grounded in a true Tasmanian experience are the hallmarks of celebrations at The Tasman. Whether you're planning a milestone life moment, a business meeting or an intimate gathering, our unique, flexible venues provide the perfect backdrop for memorable experiences. The local culture and landscape is on display in the venues' design — sandstone walls, timber features, and heritage fireplaces are found in certain spaces — and on the customizable banquet menus. Venues range from a tucked-away historic dining room and a light-filled modern lounge to an executive boardroom and a duo of configurable drawing rooms. The throughline that connects them all is our genuine, anticipatory service and our commitment to creating an event that's unique to you.
