With its hot summers and relatively cool winters, Bathurst comes close to the term 'continental' than any other places in Australia (besides the capital, Canberra). Although the town is highly elevated (and in the temperate zone), it's a bit dry and lacks humidity (perhaps due to its inland location). There is snowfall every 4-5 years in the town center, although light snowfall is seen once or twice a year in the higher parts of the town.

So, how would you rate its climate:

I'd rate it a C. It's reminiscent of a NZ South Island climate but with Melbourne summers. Not bad.

B-

Pluses are the summer and winter highs. Minuses are that the summer and winter lows are too low, plus how dry it is.
