> the rainfall starts to change from summer rain to mainly winter rain. Just
> inland along almost all of the east coast is a massive range of mounains
> with much colder climate and in the Southern half ski resorts etc. Inland
> from the mountains is much flatter and dryer. Southern Victoria and over
> water in Tasmania have cool-cold damp climates with winter rains.
> South Australia and much of Victoria has has a very mediterarian climate,
> hot dry summers and cool-cold wet winters. We get frosts in winter (very
> rarely snow), this winter much of the time our daytime max barely made
> But in summer it will occassionally make 40oC but mostly Jan would be
> 28-35oC max. We are in a cooler part of SA. Where Jan is in south central
> Vic is a bit colder in winter. Our rainfall is about 750mm, mostly in

> Most of central Aust is very dry, much of it desert, which extends into
