There's a variety of good online weather resources for Tasmania:


Given we'll be traversing the state from the northern lowlands through the central highlands and across and over the mountains in the south east, it's highly likely we'll experience a wide range of weather.

Geoscience Australia provides online calculators for computing sunrise, sunset and twilight times and moon phases. Examples as follows for roughly the middle of the trip at Bronte Park - we won't be short of daylight at the end of November, but the moon will be on the wane:

TIMES OF SUNRISE AND SUNSET
(for ideal horizon & meteorological conditions)
Time zone: +10.00 hours
23/11/2005 Rise 0437 Set 1924

TIMES OF CIVIL TWILIGHT
(for ideal horizon & meteorological conditions)
Time zone: +10.00 hours
23/11/2005 Rise 0404 Set 1957

Full moon 16/11/05, last quarter 23/11/05
