It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Tasmania

Peak Season: December to early-February

Tasmania enjoys a temperate climate, with warm, 70-degree summers and cold, wet winters. The school holidays and the Christmas break coincide with summer and the best weather across the island. Book at least three months in advance, especially between Christmas and New Year’s Day.

Off Season: June to August

Avoid the cold, wet winter in the Southern Hemisphere – temperatures average in the low 40s, snow is always a possibility, and ‘Roaring 40s’ (winds that blow across the ocean from as far away as Argentina) tear up the west coast.

Sweet Spot: late-February to May; September to November

Between March and May temperatures average in the 60s and red and yellow leaves appear on the island’s deciduous trees. Spring can be wet and cool, but by November things are warming up again. Both seasons are good for discounts and fewer tourists.
