Generally though, Hobart’s summers are far more pleasant affairs than mainland Australia. Average temperatures in January and February are 22°C - December is usually only a degree or so cooler - making it the perfect time to catch some Australian sun, while avoiding the sky-high temperatures the rest of the country is more used to at this time of year.

Pleasant temperatures make sightseeing, hikes and bushwalks all the more enjoyable.

You won’t be able to enjoy the balmy temperatures of summer, but you may be more likely to find cheap flights from Invercargill to Hobart at this time. It’s also by no means cold—stick on a couple layers and you can still spend most of your time exploring Hobart and Tasmania’s amazing markets, national parks and unique wildlife.
