The climate of New South Wales (Australia)
New South Wales is an area in the south western part of Australia. It is the oldest state in Australia and was founded in 1788. This is the first part that was colonised in Australia. The many historical buildings are still a witness to this. The main part of Australia’s population lives in New South Wales. New South Wales has many faces. From the exhilarating life in Sydney to the remote beaches and the azure blue seas in which surfers can ride the strong waves. New South Wales also has about 780 National Parks where you can see peculiar trees such as the Eucalyptus tree. Many other tropical plants grow here as well. In the most southern part the Snowy Mountains are situated. This is an area for the real dare devils. During the winter this is an excellent place for winter sports.
New South Wales has a moderate sea climate. It has four distinct seasons. With the exception of the higher regions in which subzero temperatures may occur even during the summer. During the autumn and spring large amounts of rain may fall. Especially when airstreams from the sea collide with the mountain ranges in New South Wales. Summers are cold by Australian standards with average temperatures not exceeding 30 degrees Celsius on average.

More climate information
Climate figures are very useful but don’t present a general impression of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain period. The figures don’t always reflect the chance of wintry weather, extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate information for each month of the year:
