What is the weather like in Tasmania?

Tasmania’s weather conditions

In Tasmania, we have the saying: “If you don’t like the weather, just wait 5 minutes!” Yes, we can have 4 seasons in 1 day! So it’s always a good idea to be prepared and bring your sunnies as well as a warm jacket. 😉

Actually, this summer has been very warm and dry. Nice for all the tourists that came to visit our beautiful island state, but it can get quite difficult for the rural population in Tasmania as well as for animals that depend on rain water.

This week, we got the first wooly weather pattern of the year with strong winds all around Tassie. The sky opened up for us on Monday morning though to sneak in a trip to the seals with some hardcore sailors on board. 🙂 It turned out to be a beautiful morning with lots of seals in the water. We even got treated with a little feeding-frenzy  of gannets, dolphins and seals on our way back up the coast.

Southern Tasmania’s temperate waters are home to a variety of whales and dolphins.
