Like a cool breezy climate? Let me recommend northern Saskatechwan on the flat, sub-Artcic Canadian prairies. My great-uncle lived most of his life there, by choice, mostly beef farming. But then he had migrated as a lad from Yorkshire, where chilly winds are considered good for health.

Valencia Creek. I've heard of it and have been there. I was born in Traralgon. But my ancestors come from Chatham, Southwestern Ontario, not far from Detroit. Lovely in the summer but way too cold in wintertime!

Cheers

Well, a couple of nights in Canberra during mid winter was plenty cold enough for me. Made me really appreciate the log fire in the hotel's guest lounge.

Last weekend I was camping in Hill End, NSW. Normally it is quite cold through the nights and early mornings but strangely mild early morning despite frosty nights.

It's been an abnormally temperate winter in Sydney too which leads me to believe we are in for a hot stormy summer here.

Its been a strange winter here in Melbourne too. Some of the trees didn't lose all their leaves and they have blossomed about a month early. The blackbirds have been arking up at 3.30 am, also about a month earlier than usual.

Yes Canberra can be bitterly cold in the winter but still is nothing compared to Canada and parts of the US.

Cheers.

I prefer Sydney winters to be cold (not freezing) as they should be. I don't like very hot summers, especially when arsonists set fire to the bushland.

I have heard that it gets cold in the Summer, and hot in the Winter, in Australia. At least as these seasons are defined in New Jersey (Summer = June July August, Winter = December January February) Smile

Yes, your hot August night, is our hot and sticky February night.

Hate February in Sydney. Would rather be anywhere else to escape the humidity.

"Valencia Creek. I've heard of it..."

Used to have Post Office+switchboard run by my aunty (now long closed) and Presbyterian church (once doubled as public school) (now closed) across street and community hall with historic pictures on walls visitors can view even today if someone will let you in. That's about it for the buildings there, now ghost town?
