If I HAD to pick one, I'd probably go for Hobart, seems to be sunnier than Christchurch and with slightly higher winter lows.
Hobart too for those precise reasons.

Hobart, Sunnier and warmer. Not much difference, although Chch gets more snow.

Hobart I guess. Would not be happy in either place, though.

Hobart, as it's easier to get away to better climates further north.

These two are so close, it's hard for me to pick.

I wonder if I'd feel the difference climate-wise living in one for a period of time vs. the other.

I guess I'll go with Christchurch for the slighly cooler winters and lower sunshine (though the difference is minimal).

The climates are very similiar, but am thinking CC because of the slightly warmer summers.

Which city is windier? The only real advantage Chch seems to have is higher incidence of snowfall if you like that. Other than that Hobart seems to win on all counts.

Christchurch on account of it's lower sun and both fail miserably in terms of rainfall being half (or less!) of what falls here. Temperatures seems similar with some very hot days.

being above the NZ sunshine average is like being taller than the average midget... doesn’t mean your tall. Hobart is the least sunniest main centre in Australia... that’s like saying your the shortest person in the basketball team.
