This is also my reason for voting for Perth. Though both cities have nice climates. The wiki link shows Sydney averages about 2,635 mean monthly sun hours. I assume Perth gets more but couldn't find the data.

Can the OP or anyone comment on the ocean water temp comparison between the two? A significant difference (warmer) might make me change my vote (too late I know).

I'm thinking of sunshine as well, not just temperatures.

Perth Aero averages about 3200 hours.

Pretty interesting...Perth's annual sea temperature mean is a degree warmer than Sydney's, but Sydney's waters get much warmer in the summer.

To be objective, Perth's climate is better than Sydney's due to its lower humidity in the summer and beautifully high sunshine hours (though we are sunny enough, as is). However, its wet winters are an overkill. They can get some pretty high rainfall in the winter, and that will be depressing in the winter. Would prefer if they were drier, or if that rain amount was dispersed evenly throughout the year (no dry/wet season).

Where did you get those data from?

The average for Sydney is wrong: it should be 20.9C, whence warmer than Perth.

Perhaps Geraldton would be more to your liking?

From Wikipedia. But are sourced from this:

I'll edit the annual mean on Wikipedia.

Most definitely. Not because it's drier per se, but because its winters aren't that wet. I'm not a fan of very wet winters.

Well, now this is a very hard choice. It's like telling to your son: who's your favorite parent? In overall I prefer Perth's temperatures, summers are much drier and winters are slightly warmer. Besides, I hate too much winter rain, but also too much rain in overall. Sydney's least humid season is the season it should be... and it's also quite less prone to very extreme heat. Both have many pros and few cons.

Hmm, can I vote for both? I won't vote in the poll, it's a tie for me. Both are very good climates, I give 90 out of 100 for both.

Both are A climates I guess?
