South west Tasmania could experience any weather at any time of year. Autumn can bring stunningly clear and still days, as well as wild and wet conditions so keeping a close eye on the Maydena weather forecast in the leadup to the trip will be important. Warm clothing and good waterproofing (including rainpants) will be essential. An umbrella can be a useful piece of equipment too, especially if you enjoy macro photography. A detailed list of suggested items to bring will be forwarded prior to departure.
