Lying between the Indian and Pacific oceans, Australia is about 4000 kilometres from east to west, and about 3200 kilometres from north to south, with a coastline 36735 kilometres long.
In most parts of Australia, climate extremes are not too severe, but the interior of the continent is generally hot and dry in the day and can be bitterly cold at night. Southern areas of Australia have a Mediterranean climate. Summer starts in December, autumn in March, winter in June and spring in September. However, autumn and spring days are often warm and very pleasant in Sydney and Adelaide.
As you head north, the seasonal variations become fewer, until in the Far North around Darwin, you are in the tropical monsoonal belt where there are just two seasons the wet and the dry.
