If you are on holidays the last thing you want to do is let the rain get you down or cancel a trip due to inclement weather.

The weather is starting to cool down and weekly weather updates will tell you that the chances of seasonal showers are on the rise**.

With this in mind, it might be a good idea to consider some of the great indoor activities on offer in Tasmania.

If you are travelling around the north west of the island and have a passion for cars then it is hard to look past the Wonders of Wynyard exhibition.

Featuring the country's largest collection of restored veteran Ford vehicles, which have all been restored by dedicated locals, this is a great place to spend the afternoon as you journey to your next visitor hotspot.

You can also purchase a range of top quality gifts including toys, maps and souvenirs that are suited to people of all ages.

And while a visit to the centre may not bring you any closer to finding an answer to the age old question about whether Ford is in fact better than Holden, your tour guide will help you brush up on all the facts and figures you will need to present a winning argument.

Guided tours are available for groups of 15 or more via the Wynyard Visitor Centre, but you will need to make a booking beforehand in order to secure a time that suits you.

Tasmania's Wonder of Wynyard sits right alongside the Wynyard Visitor Centre just off Jackson St and is equipped with wheelchair entry.

The centre is also a great place to gain additional information about Wynyard as well as the many festivals and events that take place place in the region.

(** Note: Hobart is the second driest capital in Australia, because of the rain shadow caused by nearby Mt Wellington. Weather changes roll in from the West, with the Western Wilderness attracting the highest rainfall in the State (rain forest); the north of the State is effected by its proximity to Bass Strait. The East Coast has the mildest weather patterns. The Tasman Peninsula being near where the Tasman Sea meets another has changes brought upon it by the Southern Ocean.
If it is inclement somewhere, somewhere else will be fine and untroubled. All weather systems pass quickly. One of the fascinating skyward aspects which visitors especially notice is the movement of clouds here – rapid and ever-changing).
