I'm slightly happy to say I live in the southern half............. and I've been to Bognor!

And Hobart seems cold compared to the rest of Australia. Interesting stats that you sent me. thanks for that. I'd be happy for 18 degrees in the winter here but that'll never happen

Bognor Regis is one of the sunniest towns in the UK isn't it? Although Eastbourne lays claim to this too.

Pleasure . Hobart is cold in the winter but given it's latitude is 42*S, it's to be expected. Can get some pretty hot days in summer when a north wind is blowing. Highest temperature is 40oC in January 1976 and January 1991 to name but two.

Darwin would definitely be the place for you in winter as they get 18oC in the winter, at night that is.

Bognor clearly beats Eastbourne on the 1971-2000 averages. Only location in lists I've seen that just scrapes the 1900+ mark.

Perth is the best city.
Brisbane is too hot and humid, Sydney too cool and wet, Adelaide too seasonal.

Denver. It has very warm summers, but clouds form over the mtns and drift across the city early in
the afternoon keeping it from getting too hot. Beautiful, long Falls and mild winters with warmer weather generally returning within days after a major snowstorm. You get four seasons, but none
are harsh. Once in a great while you get a cold winter, but sometimes hardly a winter at all.

I can't really make up my mind - sometimes I think Mediterranean climates are best, other times I think a climate that has some possibility of snow in the winter and thunderstorms in the summer is more interesting. I'm torn.

BTW I read somewhere that Perth is pretty windy, sometimes down right uncomfortable, just like Cape Town. Is that a big deal?
