Weather Conditions for the south west coast of South West Tasmania


Summer can vary from heat waves to near freezing. In other seasons it is never warm.
Be prepared for anything.


Rainfall is spread throughout the year. February is the driest month and is popular for bushwalking. Average yearly rainfall is 1660 mm (65 inches).


Compared to the inland ranges, there are less days of rainfall. Wet days are still common and must be expected. Clear days are still a rarity.

Accuracy - Based on incomplete sets of records at Melaleuca - there is a missing data and this was estimated from Strahan which has a very similar weather and rainfall pattern. Maatsuyker Island is often used as a reference but it’s a significantly drier site.
