Which New England would you choose?

New England - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Eng...ew_South_Wales)

for a climate reference.. some towns in New England (Australia) are:
Armidale - Armidale, New South Wales - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Tamworth, New South Wales - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I'd of course go for the Australian version.. much milder winters with rare snowfalls at best

Armidale, Guyra and Walcha in the New England region of NSW feature some of the best climates in Australia, but the US version still wins by a mile due to the abundance of snowfall. BTW, Tamworth isn't really considered "New England", true it's on the New England Highway but NE imo starts at Bendeemer (top of the range and the start of the cooler climate, English-like) and ends at Glen Innes or Tenterfield. The western boundary is about Inverell.

Australia.

Although summers are quite lacklustre in Australia's New England at least the winters aren't too bad unlike the US version.

I already said it in the other thread, but anyway, it's Australia.

What about places like Morree? January is 20/34C, 68/93F. That's well and truly hot.

Well, like dxnerd86, I only thought that the New England region was on the Great Dividing Range at higher elevations, but if you include the areas west of there such as Moree then, yes, those summers are definitely hot enough.

Moree is definitely not New England, anywhere west of Inverell is the North West Slopes and Plains (I'd argue even Tamworth is in the NWSP, though some label it the Upper Namoi). Moree is a pretty hot place in summer and warm most of the year, though receives frequent frosts in winter.
