mainland Australia weather is generally more arid and, particularly
in some states, less seasonally defined than weather in Tasmania
where four distinct seasons are enjoyed. Visitors from northern and
Western Australia would generally find the winter in Tasmania very
cold, however it is a beautiful time of year, with
crisp clean air, and low rainfall in many locations. White frosts,
following by still, cloudless days are common in Tasmania during
When camping in more remote parts of Tasmania, it is
not uncommon to wake to light, or even heavy, snowfalls and iced
over ponds and streams.

Always be prepared when camping in Tasmania - irrespective
of what time of the year it is. Weather conditions can change
Tasmania enjoys four distinct seasons. The warmest months
are obviously in Summer - December, January, February and March.
Autumn, or Fall as it is referred to in the Northern Hemisphere,
has many sunny days and the landscape produces a mass of colour
as very tress including oaks, elms, birches and Tasmania’s
own native beech, turn from gold to red in anticipation of
winter. Winter extends from May through August where very cool
weather can be experienced, particularly inland. Spring spans
September, October and November, and brings to life the full
beauty of Tasmanian wildflowers.
Rainfall varies significantly
across the regions of Tasmania. Because Tasmania’s
west coast rainforest is so renowned, visitors are often
surprised to learn that Hobart, with an average of 626 millimetres
per annum is Australia's second-driest capital city after
Adelaide. An annual average of 2,400 mm is experienced on the
west coast of Tasmania ensuring the rainforests thrive.
