Humidity is higher at night though...especially if it's cold and there is dew.

What I was meaning though is that there is an oft quoted 'typical' Brisbane summer of 35C + 90% humidity...tall tales in IMO.

Average 3pm relative humidity and temperature in Brisbane in summer is around 27C and 58%.

Sydney is around 24.5C and 61%, Melbourne is just under 24C and around 48%.

Cairns is around 30C and 66%, Darwin is around 30.5C and close to 70%.

If you convert those figures to dew points (the temperature at which the air becomes saturated), which takes temperature and humidity into account and is a better measure of how oppressive a place is;

Brisbane= 18C
Melbourne= 12.4C
Sydney= 16.5C
Cairns= 23C
Darwin= 24.4C

So Darwin is the most oppressive place in summer, a little ahead of Cairns which is significantly worse than Brisbane. Brisbane is a little worse than Sydney and Melbourne on average is the least oppressive place.

You should add Brisbane's 3 other summers in the list for a fair comparison...we have 4 after all

And an hour south we didn't get over 23. That tin foil around your garden certainly bumps up the temp.

I even took the electricity usage meter out in the garden as it has a thermo on it and it showed over 30.

Three can't be wrong, altho reckon you've got a dodgy thermo if it didn't go over 23 down there ...

If it had been higher, I would have changed out of jeans and jumper The sun was only shining for a couple of hours.

Gold coast - tick
hinterland - no tick
mountain - not really, big bloody hill though
thick shady rainforest canopy - definitely no tick

However, we're at the top of a long high ridge and from speaking to friends who live down the hill, we definitely have our own climate here. Only 8 minutes from the beach. I also rarely get hot, even in high summer I can have goose pimples

Oh well, I got the Gold Coast right

"even in high summer I can have goose pimples" - that is one magic street - might pm you for the address so I can park outside in high summer

Feel free, but the rest of the family consider me a joke so it's a personal magic, not a street one

I have to agree with you. Singapore feels like its about 300% all the time but it is the THI which is very high. When I lived in the States, when the temp was 80F and the humidty 80%, that was apparantly about as bad as it gets.
