- Times to Travel: Tasmania has a cool temperate climate with four distinct seasons.
Summer (December - February) days are warm, and the nights are cool and balmy. Festivals, fairs and other outdoor events take place during the summer months.
The fall season (March - May) offers crisp and sunny days and is the best time to enjoy fresh produce.
During the winter months (June - August), the weather is the wettest and coolest, as a result of cold fronts from the Southern Ocean. The spring season is nice, but the weather is unpredictable.
Most travelers prefer the period from November to March when there is a lot to enjoy in the outdoors.
