We love Tasmanian weather – most days anyway!  But remember, the day can change quickly because of our island climate.  We recommend all visitors prepare for both heat and downpour when they visit us!  Wear comfortable, closed shoes and bring a raincoat – even if it is sunny.


Visitors might be surprised to learn that Hobart, with an average of 626 millimetres (24 inches) is Australia’s second-driest capital city (after Adelaide).  To find out more about Tasmania’s weather, check out the Australian Bureau of Meteorology.
