Tasmania has a temperate climate with 4 distinct seasons. Warm summer days from December to February and sometimes snow in the cooler months of June to September. The best time to visit Tasmania is between October and April, when the weather is at its best. By May, nights are getting cold and days are getting shorter. Winters (June-Aug), especially in the high country, can be quite harsh- though that's the best time to curl up in front of a blazing fire.
The busy season for tourism runs December through February, as well as during public- and school-holiday periods. Unlike the rest of Australia, Tasmanian schools have three terms. Term dates are from the second week in February to the last week in May, the third week in June to the first week in September, and the fourth week in September to the first or second week in December.
Nestled off the Southern Coast of Australia, Tasmania offers visitors wild landscapes and breath-taking national parks, a huge variety of wildlife including the endemic Tasmanian Devil and some of Australia’s best-regarded food and wine. Admire Tasmania's sensational scenery, unique wildlife and off the beaten track locations around this beautiful island.
Start your exploration of Tasmania in the island's capital city of Hobart, Australia’s second oldest capital city. A colonial city that effortlessly blends history and heritage with modern culture and world class museums, Hobart should be on every Australia visitor’s bucket list. A coastal city on the banks of the Derwent River and nestled in the shadows of Mt Wellington, Hobart offers sensational dining, fantastic museums and beautiful landscapes. Explore Salamanca Market where a plethora of locally produced art and crafts can be found or stroll along the beautiful waterfront past 19th century Georgian Warehouses now boutique shops and galleries. A must visit during your time in Hobart is MONA – the Museum of Old and New Art which offers a fascinating insight into the changing culture of Australia from the 19th century to the present day.
We have included a private art and wine tour during your time in Hobart where you will have the opportunity to enjoy a privately guided tour of this unique and controversial museum followed by a gourmet luncheon at The Source restaurant and tour and tasting of some local wineries in the nearby Coal River Valley. Also included is a private day tour and cruise to wild Bruny Island – a true Tasmanian wilderness experience. See an extraordinarily diverse range of distinct environments from spectacular coastlines to mountains, lagoons and a wide range of flora and fauna.
Crossing the island, continue to Cradle Mountain National Park on the island’s west coast and home to the elusive Tasmanian Devil. One of the islands most visited natural attractions, there are no official settlements at Cradle Mountain so it’s just you, wildlife and nature. Part of the Tasmanian World Heritage Area, this national park offers uninterrupted dense forest home to a huge variety of ancient plants and flora and fauna. Ensure you watch out for endemic quolls or echidnas as you explore the area either self-guided or with a local guide.
Continue to Tasmania’s east coast and your third and final stop, Freycinet National Park. Known to offer some of the best hiking trails in Tasmania and some of the islands cleanest and most deserted beaches. Opt to include a cruise around the most photographed bay in Australia, Wineglass Bay or independently explore the national park by foot, bike or kayak. After sunset, ensure you look up as the lack of light pollution on the island provides some of the country’s best star-gazing – a truly immense sight to behold.
Discover rugged Bruny Island on a private wilderness tour around the island taking in the diverse and fascinating scenery before sampling some of the islands local produce.
