I often hear people say that Tassie is too cold, or too wet for a holiday. On a beautiful Autumn day like today, with amazing blue skies and warm sun, I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. Reading about cyclones, torrential rain and still high temps in other parts of Australia, I often wonder why Tassie gets such a bad rap.
Our Summers are warm to hot, but not often unbearable, our Winters are milder than places like Canberra and many parts of Victoria and NSW, and our rainfall is nowhere near as much as most other states. When you check out the weather, make sure you look at the North and the East Coast temps as well, as the South is more variable and not as mild at times, so people see the weather on TV and think the whole of Tassie is freezing/wet which is just not true!
There is so much to see and do here, and so easy for travelling. The people are friendly (of course ) and if you pick the right time of year for the type of holiday you want, it really is a beautiful place for a holiday.
