When is the best time of year to visit Tasmania?

a) see the yachts competing in the Sydney to Hobart arrive at Constitution Dock and, while they’re there, attend the Taste Tasmania festival.This is the beautiful time of year when it’s starting to get properly cold (so pack winter gear) and the leaves of Australia’s only native winter-deciduous tree, Deciduous Beech (Nothofagus gunnii) – aka ‘fagus’ – will change colour.To see this you will have to venture to the central highlands (‘Cradle Country’) or around Lake Fenton in Mt Field National Park.Relaxing in front of a fire, glass or cup of something comforting in hand, snow flakes falling outside (if you’re lucky!).We have visited Cradle Mountain – Lake Saint Clair National Park in Winter in the MINI without using chains.However, black ice does form on the roads and paths so if you’re not used to driving in these conditions you may be better advised to catch the Parks Tasmania bus into Dove Lake.If you want beautiful displays of flowers, your better bet is to head to the Royal Botanical Gardens in Hobart or City Park in Launceston.We’ve been in October – late spring – and have seen moderate to large amounts of snow still on the ground in the high country. .
