While this time is our winter, Perth does not have terrribly cold weather but it may rain. I would take jeans, runners,warm socks, shirts, a warm pullover and anorak. Melbourne does get very cold wintery weather and there is occasionally snow in the Dandenongs. Sydney is again milder. If you feel the cold I would get some long underpants for men or warm tights for ladies, if you are able to layer your clothes this will help as a lot of buildings such as restaurants in Melbourne are heated. The colder days in Melbourne might be 10C but Syd. and Perth will generally reach 15c.
If you have a fleece jacket I would bring that, not heavy in your luggage and warm on.

Many locals will tell you it's freezing at this time of year, but it's not really.
You may have plenty of fine calm sunny days, but it's likely that there may be some rain.
You will need long pants(not shorts) and a jacket/jumper as the evenings are chilly.

Max temp between 16 & 18C , min approx 5C or lower , depends how far you are from the coast. Some rain and wind. It is full on winter.

Ha ha, that's exactly what I mean Mike...it depends where you come from and what you're used to, it's only just barely cooler and rains less than UK summer.

Travel Tips for Perth

Perth is the most remote city...

by Stellco

Perth is the most remote city in the world, because it has no boundaries, they have no need to build up, they just build out! The one exception is the downtown area which has a few token sky rises, and they are best admired from Kings Park, which takes up a large area of wild bush and well kept park land, looking out over the city. If you do go to Kings, make sure you go at night as well, as the view is awesome.
Freo Market is a fantastic covered Market in Fremantle, just to the South of Perth, it can be reached by Rail. Freo is also home to some excellent Bars along the beach, which you can sit outside in the evenings and watch the green parrots shooting around the palms.
Margaret River is quite a way South, you should definately do some canoeing down there and visit the Vinyards.
City Beach is worth a visit, great Snorkelling! Sitting out on the Sidewalk of Cafes and Bars in the evenings, watching the sun go down with green parrots racing through the trees.
Snorkelling, picking up shells off the bottom of the ocean. Seeing stripey fish!

Celebrity Encounter

by Gwynneth

What brought him his fame?

In 2001 Jamie received the Logie for Most Popular New Male Talent and Backyard Blitz won the Logie for Most Popular Lifestyle for two successive years in 2001 and 2002.

Jamie, originally from Manly in Sydney, spent much of his childhood in the mining town of Tom Price in north Western Australia before moving to the Gold Coast where he completed high school.

He spent the next eight years travelling and working overseas in Europe, Asia and the United States where he had a successful modelling career.

Jamie is an accomplished gymnast who has performed in cabaret shows as an acrobat and trapeze artist and with the troupe Manpower which he also managed between 1990 and 1996.

Between 1994 and 1996, Jamie trained with some of the cast of Cirque du Soleil in Las Vegas and mastered a specialised trapeze movement, the Russian flying act.

In 2001 Jamie relished the chance to again explore the world of Cirque du Soleil and hosted the one-hour special Cirque du Soleil – Alegría for the Nine Network.

Jamie featured in James Houston’s photographic art book, Raw, which was shot on location throughout the United States. He has also appeared in commercials and twice been a Cleo bachelor.

His television credits include hosting Dig This, a series of short gardening programs for Foxtel, and One West Waikiki, from the maker of Magnum PI, Glen A. Larson, in which he appeared alongside Cheryl Ladd.

On returning to Sydney in 1997 Jamie established a landscape design business, Patio, which provides landscape design for commercial and domestic gardens in Australia and internationally, with clients in the United States and Hong Kong.

Jamie has completed a four-year Associate Diploma in Landscape Design from Ryde Horticultural College. Fondest memory would be when my daughter and I met up with him at the Burswood Spring Home Expo 2003.

Barbie: Nope It's Not A Doll

by Aidy_p

The word Barbie is the slandg for the word barbeque. The Australians love their outdoor cooking and that was what we wanted to mimc to become true Australians.

But seriously, it's pretty untidy for us to do a barbie back home in the land of Singapore.

The humid weather just makes those who are doing the cooking totally uncomfortable and sticky.

Anyway, if you do get a chance to have a barbie, do try it out!
