Ideal Self-Drive Destination
Tasmania is easy to explore by car - it is compact, the roads uncrowded and scenery varied. The benefit of its size means you can stand atop a mountain and feel sand between your toes on the same afternoon drive. It has a small population and very few freeways. The two-lane roads are mostly well-maintained and the traffic is light!
The average maximum daily summer temperatures are between 17 and 23 degrees Celsius and winter daily temperatures sit between 3 and 11 degrees Celsius.Regardless of where you travel in Tasmania you should be prepared for sudden, temporary deterioration in the weather, especially if bushwalking. Always carry additional warm clothing, including a waterproof outer layer!
