> That's why I thought that New Zealand would be more like my climate - we grow kiwis commercially here too. But if I lived in New Zealand, I'd have to come do the Great Barrier Reef & some of the beautiful jungle area in the north (plus visit you & get you to cook me some of your garlicky, gingery meals!!).

Hello Iso

Tasmania is about the same latitude as the North Island of New Zealand...Also part of Antarctica is actually Australian (I believe???) Actually, I believe the Antarctic option would be even colder than the Yukon (Brrrrrr).

Either of these places would mean you could avoid living in New Zealand yet still be part of Australia:):).

Actually only really crazy Aussies want to spend much time in Antarctica (mostly scientific types) so I reckon Tasmania would be the best compromise for you :):). They even had snow in Tasmania last Christmas (and that is during the Southern Hemisphere Summer)

Just let me know when your coming and I'll fire up the wok!!!!!

Actually if you come the middle of our winter sounds like the best time for you when the average day-time temperature varies anywhere between 10-23 degrees celsius. Only problem is you'll probably be thinking "heat wave" and try to drag me off to the beach for a swim:).

Actually I used to surf in the winter until my shoulder packed it in (best swells happen then) but that was with my steamer (full length wet suit) and booties on. The water temperature is actually VERY warm in comparison to the air temperature on those chilly winter mornings when (believe it or not) the air temperature can sometimes only be around 0-5 degrees celsius at 6.00am on the beach. I believe the water temperature never drops below about 14-15 degrees celsius even in the middle of our winter!!!

warm regards
