Hobart Weather, When to Go and Climate Information

(Hobart, Tasmania - TAS, Australia)

The state of Tasmania and the city of Hobart lie in the path of the 'Roaring Forties', a strong band of wind that circles the world, producing fairly changeable weather. Being part of a large island and the southernmost tip of Australia, Hobart features a typical maritime climate, with extremes in temperatures. Hobart tends to have fairly cool summers and some cold winters, although temperatures here always stay well above freezing.

The city's climate is generally quite mild, with fine weather all year round and less rain than many other parts of Tasmania. Hobart is comfortable to visit at any time and the summer months of December, January and February are very pleasant, with reasonable weather and only occasional downpours of rain. However, on occasion it is possible to experience several seasons in just one day, and although Tasmania enjoys plenty of daylight, Australia's capital city is not especially sunny when compared to other Australian capitals.

The autumn / fall months of March, April and May are delightful, despite the temperatures beginning to drop at this time of the year. Spring is between September to November and although there is more likelihood of rainy weather at springtime, the skies are usually quick to clear. Hobart is actually known for being one of the driest capital cities in the whole of Australia.

Average summer temperatures in Hobart are around 21°C (70°F). During the sunniest of weather, these temperatures can rise a little higher and occasionally peak at around 30°C (86°F), although this is far from the norm.
