Wild Tasmania

Coastal Hikes and Great Lodges in a Magnificent Land Down Under

Trip Level

This trip is rated Level 2, Easy to Moderate, with hikes planned for most days. Anyone in a reasonable state of fitness, accustomed to outdoor adventures, should be able to fully enjoy the planned activities. Participants should be prepared for at least 1-5 hours of hiking each day over uneven terrain (carrying a daypack only).

Vehicle touring is mostly over good roads (though they can be very windy at times) in a comfortable van or minibus. The trip features a variety of accommodations chosen for their character, size, and location. Overnights range from “bed and breakfast” inns to cabins, historic inns, and delightful wilderness lodges.

As the weather in Tasmania is often variable, we must occasionally wait for it to change to participate in our planned activities. In such a case, we may rearrange the daily itinerary to accommodate the weather.

Weather

Tasmania has a cool maritime climate, rarely extremely hot or extremely cold. The seasons are opposite to that of the northern hemisphere. Summer is from December to February, when the average maximum temperature is about 70°F.  The weather on the east coast is nearly always warmer and milder than the rest of the state. Rainfall is evenly distributed throughout the year.
