I give it a C-. One of the worst Aussie climates.

Only positive is the the highland regions get a good amount of storms.
What are you talking about? With a record low of only -9C, lots of palms could be grown there like windmill alms, butia palms and even canary island date palms would survive in Oberon

B-. Winters are too warm, but summers are pleasant.

If you had to find an Australian climate (relatively) similar to London this would probably be it.
They might be similar in terms of their winter temps, but I'd say Bothwell (in Tasmania) is much more like London as it's more ocean influenced and less extreme.

Oberon has warmer, drier summers (influenced by the nearby desert) and it could get heat extremes (akin to Melbourne). Here is Bothwell's climate (summers are identical to London's):

What's the point of palm trees in a climate that cold?

Widely regarded as the coldest town in the state of NSW, outside of the Snowy Mountains villages.
Give it a C.
Pleaseant enough, but still too cold with low lying fog and mist for numerous months of the year.
One of the few towns that reliably sees snow virtually every year, and a favourite with the snow-chasers, heading up to Shooters Hill as well.

Perfect climate and one of my favorites in Australia as well!
I wonder how sunny this place would be.
Its a tie B+/A-. I would have to be generous this time and give it an A!

Yuck! Record high in December is barely 6 degrees above the record high for July. Not enough seasonality at all, given that mean summer lows are only a bit warmer than mean winter highs.
