Tasmania’s East Coast has a temperate maritime climate, with mild average temperatures and four distinct seasons. Tasmania’s average maximum summer temperatures range between 17 and 23°C (62-73° Fahrenheit) with winter temperatures of between three and 11°Celsius (37- 51° Fahrenheit).

The weather on Tasmania’s east coast is often milder and more settled than other parts of the island, thanks to the moderating influence of the ocean. Here, you’ll enjoy long summer days, crisp, clear winters, mild autumn weather and the vibrant freshness of spring.

Weather conditions in Tasmania can chance quickly, so make sure you’re well equipped with adequate clothing, sun and rain protection, and check local weather reports before you travel.
