When is the BEST time to visit Tasmania?

Anytime really! There is something to see and do during all seasons in Tassie. Whether it’s indoors at the Mona Art Gallery in Hobart on a chilly winters day or hiking the overland track from Cradle Mountain to Lake St Clair National Park during the summer or Autumn.

Springtime in Tasmania and the little island really shows off! Poppies, tulips and hundreds of acres of flowers from one end of the state to the other. The Table Cape region is especially famed for the tulip displays.

Summertime in Tasmania does not generally get extreme, though plenty of days are hot and humid. Tasmania has some of the best beaches in the world and anytime of the year can be fantastic for a beach walk.

Ideally, late spring/summer/early autumn would be considered the pick of the best times to visit Tasmania. Tassie does not get as crowded as many mainland states in the peak holidays seasons – perhaps with the exception of Mt Wellington, Cradle Mountain and Wine Glass Bay.
