Hello Hobart

Students coming to the University of Tasmania (UTAS) for their WORLDREP exchange will be right in the centre of one of Australia's emerging tourism hot spots.

The Journalism, Media and Communications program is based on the Sandy Bay, Hobart campus of UTAS. Hobart is, according to this story in the Guardian, 'flourishing' right now.

Just one of the things to do (and opening this week in Hobart) is the MONA FOMA festival (a.k.a. 'MOFO'). Although we don't have any of our WORLDREP exchange students here to enjoy it this time around we're looking forward to sharing the fun with you in 2016, 2017 and 2018! (Look out for MOFO's colder, darker sibling Dark MOFO around the time of the Winter Solstice too.)

Tassie's so hot right now. MONA Museum's festival of music and art. Hobart, Tasmania, January 15-18. http://monafoma.net.au/
