No rent on this island, but the Weather is a Question
The rent costs nothing, but the weather might. This island is one of the most windy islands in Australia and if you think this will be a beach holliday on Maatsuyker Island then we can reveal that the island doesn’t have a beach.

The island is affordable for you, but without Internet connection at all. The task at the island is however to maintain the island’s buildings, make sure that the plants grow and perform daily meteorological measurements for Australia’s metrological institute.

Located south of Tasmania
Tasmania is Australian territory, and Maatsuyker located south of the southern tip of the Australian mainland. Tasmania is that big island south of Melbourne, which looks like its part of Australia but isn’t. Because of the location, the island have much less heat than rest of Tasmania and Australia itself. In winter, the temperatures can get quite low, but in summer high and nice temps.

The winter months are between June and August and are generally the wettest and coolest months in the state, with most high lying areas receiving considerable snowfall. Winter maximums are 12°C (54°F) on average along coastal areas and 3°C (37°F) on the central plateau, as a result of a series of cold fronts from the Southern Ocean. Inland areas receive regular freezes throughout the winter months. Spring is a season of transition, where winter weather patterns begin to take the shape of summer patterns, although snowfall is still common up until October. Spring is generally the windiest time of the year with afternoon sea breezes starting to take effect on the coast.
