About us

When women connect, women succeed.

Women in Tourism & Hospitality Tasmania was founded in 2009 to provide support, mentoring and networking opportunities for women in our industries.

It's about connecting, sharing and friendship.


Get connected with other women working in your field in a welcoming, supportive environment.

Share experiences, contacts and expertise with those who understand your industry.

Special extended rate for new Members >


Our events are all aimed to inspire, motivate, inform in a welcoming atmosphere for connecting and sharing.

Our first event for 2021 is on the 18th February. We're taking a walk in the garden - to mingle with colleagues, to talk shop, talk roses, talk history and simply reconnect. Details on our events page here  

Stay tuned for more opportunities to socialise, share and inspire.

Staying connected and navigating challenging times.

COVID-19 has had a huge impact on our tourism and hospitality industries and our lives in general.

WITH Tas remains committed to connecting and supporting the women in our industries and in April introduced a new initiative - the Virtual Cuppa - which concluded in June. It provided support, understanding voice and practical advice many needed. Read more here >

Navigating all the announcements and support from governments and industry bodies can also be confronting so we’ve collected the most relevant for small/micro tourism operators on our Support & Resources page.

Please contact us if you need support, assistance or advice – within our networks there are many wonderful women who can offer expertise and empathy through these times.
