Climate

A similar climate to southern Australia, Tasmania has warm, dry summers and cool, wet winters. However, climate here is more variable and more changeable, with some areas (for example Hobart) receiving considerably less rainfall than others. Most of the rainfall is in the west of the island. There is often snow above 1,000 metres (3280 feet) in July and August.

Required clothing

Cottons and linens are advised for the summer, and warmer medium weights in winter. Waterproofing is advisable throughout the year, mainly in highland areas. Jumpers are suggested for the evenings, all year round.
