Actually counting since 1939 Canberra's record low is 14F.

Well I have to say I'm surprised by the high number of B ratings for this climate. It's definitely not a boring climate.

Using your logic, I assume you would consider Canberra warmer than Brownsville, TX, New Orleans, LA, Houston, Mobile, Savannah, etc. etc. All this of course based on record winter lows decades old. I consider myself a warm lover over cold, and I would take that one ice day every ten years over an average winter night in Canberra anyday. How bout the fact that every winter Canberra goes below freezing 55 nights vs 18 in Biloxi. C'mon you seriously can't claim Canberra is warmer based on that.
Ok your well point is taken on the temperatures and on average, Biloxi is significantly warmer than Canberra for sure. I'm actually surprised that Canberra gets that many frosts.. that's even more than where I live (Vancouver). I guess the elevation causes that. How about I say that it's a tie then in terms of overall climate. Although if I had to choose which one to live in, I'd pick Canberra because it's not prone to hurricanes or tornadoes.

It’s just my opinion (a warm weather fan) - but if a location has an average daily highs in the winter months over 60 F/15 C, then I think it has a relatively mild winter (no it’s not Rio or Palm Beach winter either). Biloxi-Gulfport has average highs in the lower 60’s in the coldest months…but Canberra is too cold with average winter highs only in the low to mid 50’s . However, I do like Canberra (at least based on the numbers on that Wikipage) much better than other climes in that part of Australia/New Zealand; at least Canberra is not affected with the cool summers of places like Melbourne, Sydney, Auckland, Christchurch…etc where no summer months have average highs of even 80 F/26 C.

It's like a cooler version of where I live. Still a D though.

Depends on the chance of snow, but as usual for southern US cold snaps are dry so D.

B-/c+ winters are too cold for a tropical climate lover like me. but it does have plentiful rainfall and it's summers are nice and hot.

A-. It's great, always warm and sunny.
Summers are a bit hot and prone to hurricanes () and rainfall is excessive, but I don't mind.
