Pub Moots

Once a month in three different locations around Tasmania, we host 'Pagans in the Pub'. This is a casual, friendly gathering of like-minded people, and a great chance to get to the know the community over a meal and a drink or two.

Each gathering, or "moot", is different - we often have discussion topics, guest speakers, and some moots will even have craft activities, raffles and more! Old or young (although you do need to be over 18 or with a parent or guardian), experienced or new, or even if you're not quite sure if this is for you, all are welcome to join our Pagans in the Pub, which have been running for over 10 years! Simply bring yourself, some money for a meal and a drink if you like and, most importantly, a positive attitude.

Burnie Moot


When: Second Thursday of every month.

Where: The Townhouse - 139 Wilson Street, Burnie

Time: 6:30pm onwards - **RSVPS ARE REQUIRED**

Convener: Mel Dolliver ·

While the numbers tend to sit around the 10-12 people mark at this moot, this doesn't mean that we don't have some very interesting discussions with some very knowledgeable characters! Michelle's attention to detail makes this moot a lot of fun, often with guest speakers and always with a discussion topic for the night. It's not unusual to see at least one person bring in books, crystals or stones, or other interesting items they've found to share - we've even had a baby bird! This is a cozy, fun group and great for a first peek into what our community can offer for networking.

Hobart Moot


When: First Thursday of every month
Where: New Sydney Hotel, upstairs (ask for "the Pagans" at the bar) - 87 Bathurst Street, Hobart
Time: 6:30pm till about 9:00pm
Convener: Morgan Leigh ·

Come together with us on the first Thursday of every month for open discussions, friendly banter and dynamic guest speakers, with an eclectic mob of psychedelic, funky, groovy open minded pagans! Regulars, irregulars and newbies more than welcome. Buy a drink and a snack to support The New Sydney and their amazing staff, whose menu and drink selection is only bested by their hospitality!

The New Sydney Hotel prides itself on what all good pubs should be about - great beer, good wine and fantastic pub meals. Proud to be pokie-, TV- and jukebox-free, the New Sydney has welcomed us with open arms for many years. Much to our amusement, the private room the New Sydney donate to us each month is called "The Chapel" due to its unique roof shape.

Launceston Moot


When: Last Tuesday of every month.
Where: Newstead Hotel - 160 Elphin Road, Newstead
Time: 7:00pm onwards - **RSVPS ARE REQUIRED**
Convener: Current Vacant ·

Every month a group of 15 to 20 Pagans from all around the north of Tasmania meet together to share dinner together and chat about various pagan topics. The group members have a wide range of interests, paths, and beliefs, and always welcome new and curious members. Each month we have a new topic of discussion or guest speaker. A week prior to each moot reminder emails and Facebook events will be up so that attendees can RSVP prior to the moot.

The Newstead Hotel, only five minutes from the heart of Launceston. Built in the 1850's the hotel has taken on many changes over the years becoming one of the most iconic venues of the city. The Hotel has all you are looking for. If you would like to find out more about The Newstead Hotel, you can check out their website.
