Tasmania climate overview

Located southeast of Australia's mainland, Tasmania is a heart-shaped island with varied landscape that includes rugged mountains, Australia's last great 'wild river' system, alpine lakes, dense bushland, sandy beaches, serene countryside and farmland. National parks take up some 40 per cent of the state. Tasmania's past as a 19th century British penal colony is clear at the foreboding Port Arthur and from numerous convict-built bridges, churches and cottages.

The environment is a strong focus in this sparsely-populated state, and thanks to the 'Roaring Forties' even the air is pristine. The South West National Park is Tasmania's largest. This World Heritage site contains rare virgin forest, almost impenetrable horizontal scrub, button grass plains and a rugged, remote coastline. The island's central plateau is glaciated and lake-studded, with lowlands to the east. There are many different native forest types from the dense rainforest of the west to the open, drier bushland of the east.

Tasmania's latitude and its mountain ranges result in considerable rainfall and temperature variations. Average annual rainfall on the western ranges can be more than five times greater than in the east.

The influence of the surrounding ocean means Tasmania's climate is rarely extremely hot or extremely cold. Summer temperatures are comfortable, tending to cool in the south and at altitude. Conditions in summer are generally dry with long, sunny days. Winters are cold and wet, with sudden storms. Snow above 1,000 metres (3,300 feet) is the norm for this season.
