During the summer months (December – March) expect pleasant summer days and mild evenings (maximums in the low 20s and minimums of around 10 degrees). Don’t forget to pack a light jacket for watching the platypus or heading up into the mountains.
By May its getting cold with maximum temperatures between 10 and 13 degrees through until September. At night it can get just below freezing. Jackets and wet weather gear are essential, but on calm sunny mornings you might be surprised how warm it feels in the sun! If you plan on heading to Cradle Mountain and surrounds expect there could be snow at this time of year.
Spring months can be variable – ranging from warm and sunny to cold and windy – you might still see occasional snow on Mt Roland. You will need to pack for all four seasons!
You’re going to a farm so don’t forget to pack sensible closed toe shoes if you would like to take a walk around the property. There are no paths in some places and some long grass. We respect the rights of all wildlife to live peacefully at the farm including those of the scaled kind!
North West Tasmania is famous for its abundant rainfall (often while you are sleeping). In the winter it can get wet and muddy so bring your boots (This is not the place for your favourite set of heels).
To keep our rooms and comfy carpet sparkling clean (and cow poo free) we ask that guests remove their shoes in the cabins. If you get cold toes don’t forget your favourite pair of woolly socks or slippers.
