Climate & Weather
Due to the size of this "island continent," the weather in Australia varies considerably, from the rugged hot desert of the Outback to the cool, snowy mountains of the Australian Alps. Typically, everything north of the Tropic of Capricorn experiences more tropical weather with a rainy and dry season. The southern half can range from temperate, oceanic and Mediterranean. Remember the seasons in the Southern Hemisphere are reversed, so your winter might be Australia's summer.
