Tasmania’s North West enjoys four distinct seasons.

Spring (Sept – Nov) is a terrific season to see the native flora and fauna in flower. Expect some cold weather and spring rain so pack a raincoat and umbrella.

Summer (Dec – Feb) is definitely the time of year for outdoor activities so pack SPF 30+ sunscreen and a hat for the day and warmer clothes for those cool to mild summer nights.

Autumn (March – May) is slightly cooler but you can still expect plenty of sunshine so keep the sunscreen and hat handy.

Winter (June – Aug) is still a great season to travel around the North West of Tasmania as it has a much more temperate climate than the South. Overnight frosts can be followed by crisp blue skies and sunshine.


Climb Cradle Mountain, cruise the Gordon River, explore Tasmania's World Heritage Wilderness and experience the Tarkine.  

It's all here in Tasmania's Western Wilderness.
