Our climate

Forget the myths - Hobart is actually Australia's second driest capital city after Adelaide.

Hobart boasts the most daylight hours of any Australian capital city during summer.

So, pack sun block and a jumper, come on down and enjoy the freshest air in the world!

Unlike many areas of mainland Australia, Tasmania has four distinct seasons:


Tulips in Tasmania

September - November

Spring weather brings a variety of conditions, from cold and windy to still and warm - often within the one day!

Gardens around the state come alive!


Summer in Tasmania

December - February

Summer temperatures are generally warm with long days. We have an average maximum temperature of 21 degrees Celsius (70 degrees Fahrenheit).

Yachts, walks on the beach, outdoor festivals and, did someone say barbeque?


Autumn in Tasmania

March - May

Autumn signals a discernible change to milder, clear days. A great time to visit our National Parks and see the changing colours.

For many locals, this is their favourite season.


winter in tasmania

June - August

Winter brings shorter daylight hours, colder temperatures and snow on the higher peaks, with an average maximum temperature of 12 degrees Celsius (40 degrees Fahrenheit).

Perfect for brisk short walks or relaxing by a crackling log fire.
