April Weather

Hobart weather in April can be pretty chilly, especially in the evening, with temperatures as low as  8° (46 F) and as high as 18° (64 F), so don't forget to pack warm clothes with you.  Hobart averages 12 days of rain in April, so we recommend that you keep an umbrella handy before embarking on outdoor activities.  It is recommended that you check the weather forecast before arriving in Hobart as the weather forecast can change daily.
