Tasmania’s maritime climate means that the weather can change very quickly particularly in alpine areas, hot and sunny conditions can become squalls, heavy rain, sleet and snowfalls within a very short time.
Walkers must be prepared with warm, windproof and waterproof equipment at any time of the year and in any region of Tasmania. Before you begin your walk, check the weather. Each trail has been linked to the nearest weather station to make this easier.
