Thanks for that info. Peter. Because Oz is such a new country (so
to speak) I had always assumed Melbourne Fl. was there first.
My Melbourne is generally a mild and low humidity climate, a few
hot weeks in summer and a few cool ones in winter (10 deg C would
be a cold winter day). However we do have some pretty good skiing
in the hills 2-3 hours drive from the city in the winter. But best of
all, once out of the city, we have hardly any people at all and lots
and lots of open space :)
