Summer in Hobart and Southern Tasmania

It’s been an interesting summer in Tasmania, with devastating fires in ancient forests in wilderness areas of the north and west. Elsewhere it has been incredibly dry, but in the seaside environments of Hobart and its surrounding areas, there has been some very enjoyable summer weather.
