Hi Scott,
I live near the mid northcoast of Australia.
Winter where we live is between 60 to 80 deg fahrenheit, summer 80 to 100 deg.
( north is hotter, south is colder.)

Today ( mid winter at home) the sun is shining, the birds are singing and it's a balmy 75 deg.

Last Xmas was hot, it reached about 100 deg.

Australia is well worth a visit. Exchange rate is great. You get about $1.30 AUD for $1USD , so your money goes further. Allow yourself plenty of time because, as Nigel mentioned, the place is huge & there's lots to see. We even speak English, even though you might need the odd translation for some of our Aussie slang haa haa.

best wishes

Geez, you sound like your climate is warmer than Florida. And to imagine Christmas at 100F, with no snow. I guess it's all on where you where raised. It makes me laugh wondering what your Christmas cards look like. Does Santa wear shorts and a Hawaiian shirt with palm trees in the background? haha

I have liked every Australian I have ever met. They just seem so nice and courteous, friendly and laid back. But what is funny to me, occasionally when I guess they have an English accent, they seem to get that, oh no, not another one thinking I'm from England look
