I just generally prefer very wet climates. Cairns hits the spot during “the wet”, as they say in northern Australia. I hear it can impede travel though.

I also like heavy rain and thunderstorms in warm climates for part of the year. All year would get too much. But I also prefer there to still be enough rain in the drier season for the landscape to stay nice and green. So Cairns fits the bill pretty well.

Miami for being drier in the hot season and having slightly cooler winters.

I'll go with Cairns for more stable winters and slightly milder summers. Accidentally chose Miami though.

Miami has better weather than Cairns but most of Oz has better weather than Miami. Perth, Darwin, & Alice Springs would beat Miami. But I like slightly drier climates.

Stability in temperature is important for me, so I choose Cairns.

This ^^

Anyway I vote for Cairns, slightly better than Miami

[mod note] Discussion about Seasonal Affective Disorder is not appropriate to the Weather forum, and certainly not this thread. Here is one existing thread on the topic.

I think discussing SAD is appropriate for a weather forum.

Yes. It's one of those intersections of weather/climate/life that makes the discussion interesting. Without considering such things it's all just numbers.
