The average temperature in summer is 10ºC ( 50ºF ) but has the possibility for extreme swings.

Dress for the cold (hat, gloves, scarves).

Dress in layers as it is warm inside (van, stores) but pretty cold outside.

From there it is possible to observe the Murray Channel which was crossed by Charles Darwin and Captain Fitz Roy in 1830 when they discovered the Beagle Channel and interacted with the natives. It is also possible to get up close to archeological sites of 8000 years old, where the natives used to build their shelters.
