    Checked out the official temps last year on B.O.M . Pulled
    33 degrees plus out of the air as starting to get hot and uncomfortable.

    Gold Coast 3 days 33 degrees plus. Max 36.5

    Sydney 12 days 33 degrees plus. Max 40.9

    Melbourne 22 days 33 degrees plus. Max 41.2.

    Makes Melbourne and Sydney look uncomfortable

    Yes, i'm happier to buy somewhere with more pleasant temps year round. But it's one factor of many (comes after jobs and so forth) and so its not the main driver. But if its a place people want to live and its not so affected by extreme weather events its a huge plus.

    Thats interesting. We are in melbourne and thinking of getting a pool. Seems a bit decadent in melbourne with our shorter swimming season but its those very hot days that make it so unpleasant to be out and about and hard to be stuck inside with kids.

    Im surprised how few extreme heat days sydney experiences. Id be interested in Adelaide's stats. We just ruled out a weekend away to adelaide in feb in case it was a 40 degree weekend.

    I think climate definitely has an impact on where people, industry and jobs are located in Australia. As climate patterns change, jobs and housing demand might shift too.

    I agree. I personally don't like cold but climate is the reason Sydney and Melbourne have more people. And the reason Cairns has less than Bne and almost no one wants to live in Darwin really unless they go there for income.

    I was surprised. i just wanted to confirm my hunch that Melbourne although always talked about as been the cold city was in fact one of the hotter ones .
    Temperatures certainly play a major role in determining where you want to live.
    Nothing wrong with Melbourne . Great city.

    That's debatable...
    It doesn't really get as hot in Brisbane but it when it gets really humid it's not very pleasant.

    Doesn't ever get to 40 degrees in Cairns either but 33 with high humidity is a killer.

    The weather on the Gold Coast does not tend to ever get above 32 degrees. We dont have the extreme 40 degree summer days like other states

    I saw the stats for my Brissie property before it settled and it happily surprised me. On average it seems to be warmer than where I live in Sydney (which also means... pleasant evenings) but doesn't tend to get the extreme cold or hot either. Win. :)

    Melbourne has got some pretty hot days especially the xmas break and new 2 X 40+ degrees and multiple 33+ degrees to the point that my samsung 7kw AC got busted and leaked into the floors.

    I reckon Canberra would usually have quite a few as well.

    Magnetic Island should be the new capital.

    That's why I live in Perth. More sunny days than any other state capital city. Always thought WA should take legal action against Queensland for falsely claiming it is the sunshine state!.

    Another way to look at how much sunshine a city gets is to measure the number of hours with bright sunshine.
    Average hours of bright sunshine a year

    Adelaide, South Australia 2774
    Brisbane, Queensland 2884
    Canberra, Australian Capital Territory 2811
    Darwin, Northern Territory 3103
    Hobart, Tasmania 2263
    Perth, Western Australia 3212
    Sydney, New South Wales 2592

    We still have fossil fuels until the Greens have their way and turn us into a welfare state/third world cheap holiday destination selling snow clouds and tea towels... like Tasmania :p
