It’s probably summer where you are, but it’s winter here in Australia. Winter in Brisbane is kind of like spring in Vancouver… in a span of a day, the weather can be chilly, windy, rainy, and sunny. Before moving here I assumed that it would be hot all the time but boy was I wrong! I moved here with hardly any warm clothes and I’m regretting that now.
Australia has seasons too and it does get quite chilly here, especially further south where it gets progressively colder. Sydney and Melbourne are a lot colder than Brisbane in the autumn and winter seasons… so cold in fact, that it was just 3 degrees in Melbourne the other day!
If you’re planning on visiting Brisbane in the winter, I recommend bringing jeans with you, long sleeve shirts, a few warm sweaters, pants, a pair of booties/boots, runners, a trench coat, and an umbrella. You don’t need a wool coat or anything but something that blocks the morning and evening chill is essential. Brrr… I’m counting down to spring!
