Tasmania Travel Guide

Tasmania is a state unlike any other throughout Australia. With lush green scenery throughout, Tasmania has often been compared to the English countryside. With a strong European heritage, dramatic coastlines and the world’s cleanest air, it’s easy to see why Tasmania is such a popular holiday destination for walkers and outdoor enthusiasts. The capital of Hobart makes a relaxed base from which to begin your exporations.

Territory information

Climate

With a similar climate to southern Australia, Tasmania enjoys warm, dry summers and cool, wet winters. However, climate in Tasmania is more more changeable, with some areas (eg Hobart) receiving considerably less rainfall than others. Most of the rainfall is in the west of the island. There is often snow above 1000m (3280ft) in July and August.

Required clothing

Cottons and linens are worn in summer and warmer medium weights in winter. Waterproof clothing is advisable throughout the year, particularly in highland areas and jumpers are recommended for the evenings, all year round.
