I give it a C+

I like high diurnal climates, looking at precip and temps,
climate looks similiar to Ukiah, California
Ukiah is north of San Francisco near the coast but significantly inland
to have much greater seasonal range of temperatures.

B-. Not a bad climate overall. I would prefer a lower diurnal range in summer.

Still a lot of palm species that could grow there. Average lows are slightly warmer than here, and plenty of species can grow here. Extreme lows in Myrtleford are probably lower, -10C/14F would be my guess.

Probably -6C or -7C would be the record low, going on nearby centres.
Overall, the lows are quite a bit cooler than just across the border in Albury-Wodonga for instance, especially during summer.
I'd give this place a B, fairly mild temperate but cooler than ideal yearly minimums.
Rainfall is biased towards winter, almost Mediterranean, which is a plus - so summers are sunny at least.

More than 20 (though I found a source that says 19, but it doesn't fit with other places) and no more than an average of 45 which is what a similar station, that is a little cooler, gets.
Oh, OK. B- seems about right for quite good sunshine, rainfall higher than I want.

No A's or F's. No one loves it or despises the place.

On the palm topic, here's a real estate picture. Palm growing ability is good, especially compared to some other temperate places.

I'd give it a B+; nice but a little too cool at night.

Too much rain? How in the heck? You must like deserts... they are hellholes to me.

Anyway I'm giving it a C, for too little rain and lack of a true winter. The high diurnal is quite nice.

E Summers are too warm and being in Australia it's prone to heatwaves and bush fires. Winters are too mild for even a slight snow risk winters would be sooo boring.

Rainfall is good. The average highs are good to but I don't like the lows.

C+

Nice dry warm summers with cool nights (which provide relief) and moderately cool winters (not too cold) - that's a plus.

But there is no 'transition season' - 27C to 21C is a big drop. Rainfall is also way too high in the winters - I would be so depressed.

I really don't mind the lows considering that we're asleep during that time? They also add interesting seasonality in just 24 hours. Not to mention, it's not like there's snow to make it harder for waking up for work.
