In Tassie, we embrace our seasons. Tasmania’s seasons are distinct with each offering something unique. In summer, average maximum daily temperatures range between 17 and 23 degrees Celsius, while in winter temperatures sit between 3 and 11 degrees Celsius, making any time of year an ideal time to visit, with the right wardrobe of course.
You may have heard that our winters are cold, but we think it’s just as spectacular a time to visit as our warmer months. As well as events like Dark Mofo and the Festival of Voices, winter also offers delicious seasonal food and the opportunity to cosy up by the fire.
At any time of year, being prepared for a sudden change in weather is key to comfortable travel in Tassie, even in summer. It’s important to pack appropriate clothing, especially if you’re bushwalking and always have a waterproof layer you can throw over the top.
Regardless of the weather, we hold major events, festivals, exhibitions and markets throughout the year.
