I really enjoy doing these climate battles and this time I will focus on Australia
Which climate suits you best?

Perth - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Melbourne - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sydney - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Cairns - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Melbourne and Sydney actually surprise me, the warmest months in Melbourne are colder than in many canadian cities during their warmest months)

Melbourne sounds the most interesting so I chose it- Sydney sounds kinda like California and would be my second choice. Now, which city has the least venomous bugs and snakes and spiders among those four?

Out of the 4, I'd probably go with Sydney for good rainfall and a comfortable climate in all seasons. Cairns runs a close second.

I'd expect Melbourne to be the least bug infested.

Ok nowhere in Australia has a sufficient climate for me.

So I will pick Melbourne but sure 13c is crap, no chance of snow there.
If there are towns up the mountains I will pick those.

Sydney for me. Perth has better temps but fails with the Mediterranean rainfall pattern.

Overall, Australia is quite fortunate when it comes to climate. I think I'd be happy in all those locations.

Oh look at this place.

Has anybody visited. I think its elevation is only 1000feet which seems a bit weird to be getting those temps in aussie. But anyhow.

Even here you have to goto 2000feet for an average high of 2c. HMMM.
