When To Come


Tasmania has a temperate climate with four distinct seasons. Typical summer temperatures are in the mid twenties during the day and mid teens at night – perfect for walking! 

The walking season typically operates over seven months from October till the end of April.

Each month offers a different delight for walkers whether that be watching humpback whales migrate in November, seeing the forest ablaze with wildflowers in December or swimming in warmed ocean waters after a mountain walk in February.

If you happen to be here out of that season, you can still don snow shoes and explore the winter wonder of the Walls of Jerusalem with Tasmanian Expeditions, one of the Great Walks.
